The Setup: You’ve made it deep in the money of the Stars Sunday Million. With 46 left, you’re actually the chip leader in the tournament. At 45 the payout increases by about $1,000.

You’ve shown down nothing but good hands and been quiet otherwise. The table has been playing fairly tight and it’s been a bit since a flop was dealt.

The first three players fold and then the CO + 1 makes a standard raise. The CO folds and the action is to you. There’s about 10% of your stack in the middle.

    any pair, suited connectors, high card, medium aces will do it. It’s a good spot to increase your stack with a pretty low risk.
    I would probably call and try to trap with a monster though, giving the impression that I became loose because of my stack.

    Bit odd posting this question without any read on CO+1. Kind of like telling us that x+something=5 and then asking asking us for the literal value of x.
