Why if everyone is happy?

Because we play poker aggressively to exploit peoples risk aversion. When there is big money involved deep in a tournament, this is when people are generally the most risk averse and our aggression is most effective. Plus we're playing for a lot of money so our aggression brings big rewards!

absolutely, and if you are in this position several times a month then it will undoubedtly be +++EV to exploit the weakness....but....

if you only play at this level occasionally and a differential in payout of nearly 10K can be effected by one card,then you need to factor that in as well.

this isnt a maths problem for most people, its real life, and 10K is 10K

I personally think greed is most poker players downfall, I know I've been there. Why risk it all when 18k is guaranteed? Its not like the extra 8k is going to change your life now you have 18k, if indeed you manage to win it all. Pretty sure you would be gutted if you ended up finishing fourth though through being greedy.............

Yeh I'm nto trying to bashi boshi for dealing - obv its +EV in some situations. I'd be lying if I claimed that I've never done a deal myself

Congrats on the score

Its not about greed at all for me. Its simply the maths. If I feel that the money being offered is greater than my EV then obv I'd take it and I have done in the past. We're not risking it all, its £6.5k guaranteed.

I actually did finish 4th after refusing a deal in the deepstack in May and wasn't really gutted at all
