Generic MTT question - Getting right price to draw vs Stack size % / BBs remaining?
Hi all - noob here (I've played about 30k hands in uNL Ring games but am now dipping into MTTs for a change) so any advice on this kind of spot would be appreciated.
Say it's a 3-way pot on a 9-handed table (with, say, 90 left out of 180), blinds are 100/200, you're in position versus 2 solid TAGs, you get to the Turn and the pot is 2000. UTG leads 500, MP calls and you're on the button drawing to the nut flush with a stack of 2000.
So, you're getting the right price to call to hit your draw, but the call represents 25% of you stack. And if you miss, you'll only have 7.5 BB's left.
Assuming at least one of the opponents won't fold to a shove, is this a call? And is there any rule of thumb for what % of your stack is reasonable to call towards hitting a draw, when getting the right price to draw? Or a rule of thumb for what % of your stack is reasonable to call, versus how many BBs you'll be left with if you miss?
My understanding is that, in a cash game, it's always correct to call in this spot as you're getting the correct immediate price to draw. So, even if you feel you won't get any more out of your opponents when the flush hits, it's still correct to call.
To my mind, the same is not necessarily true for tournament poker as you have to consider your stack size and staying alive.
Apologies for not having any HH, but I hope I've explained the kind of spot I'm trying to understand. I also realise I could be leaving out a ton of relevant info, but any advice on what that is and why I should be considering it would be appreciated too!
