About 30 players or so in this game.

I knew the risks here. One of the losing players was critical afterwards.

What's in my mind:
Having played most of these players b4,
shark if feel can be loose,
chasingcards and georgie are tricky players - they may well call to see a flop with
less than top hands here.
leet22 is a player who is possibly capable of making a large raise to steal the pot.

Earlier in the day and without those beers, well who knows..

but with the above in mind, I may likely find myself HU with leet22, in say a 55-45% race
for a pot around 2560, and I'm getting over 2 to 1 odds from the pot.

So, comments please...

Okay, let's have a look..

UTG raise with AK, good move..
3 callers before leet pushes all in, so there's a decent amount in the pot.  I say your move depends largely on what you figure the other players to be on.  Obviously if you think leet has KK/AA it's a fold but any other hand you need to call, UNLESS you think another player may call, regardless of his hand.  The reason why I feel the strength of the third player's hand doesn't matter is because no matter what, they are severely lowering your chances of winning this hand.  Obviously leet has a solid hand with his push, so you figure to be a 50/50 already.  With one more call, you're less than a coinflip to take down the pot.  Granted, you'd be getting the right pot odds but the fact is you want to minimize your big risks in a tournament.

In a cash game this call is entirely dependent on your read of leet but in a tournament the other player's tightness/looseness plays a big factor.
