I dont see any value hand that I beat and I block a lot of draws.
I call 100% in a non-ICM spot, but here I dont want to play my tournament so close to the TF with only 30% equity.
On the other hand, he has few Ax, no set, not top DP (3bets pre), not Q8 (x/raise flop), the only value hands that make sense with that line (x/call flop and donk half my stack turn on a blank) are Axdd (x small), A2, perhaps Q2s, and I see very few hands that call flop and bluff turn: KJdd KTdd JTdd J9dd T9dd.
