Let's say it's a $10 10-man Sit-n-Go. First hand. You are the BB. All 9 players before you went all-in. You look down and find AA. Do you call?Let's say the 9 hands are completely random. Do you call?Let's say the 9 hands are somewhat reasonable, with the possibility of AA, AK, KK, QQ, TT, 66, 27o, ... etc in the mix. Do you call?Let's say somehow you know for sure another AA is held by another player, so you are calling for almost a chop or worse (unless a 4-flush of your suit comes). Do you call?

Sweet, merciful death would be preferable to answering that question.

OP = RetardedFWYWWTSF
There was madness in any direction, at any hour…You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning…. And that, I think, was the handle-that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting-on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave….So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark-that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

if you know for sure the other 9 hands are AA, KK, QQ, JJ, TT, 99, 88, 77, 66, there are 16 cards in the remaining 32 that can turn a set to beat you. Those 16 cards not showing up in all the 5 community cards are roughly 3% (0.5*0.5*0.5*0.5*0.5). So you are almost 1 to 33 underdog to call a pot with 1 to 4.5 odds? Am I missing something?

Imagine you're playing in the big game and you're dealt AA in LHE. The betting's capped 3-ways in front of you, when all of a sudden a wolf jumps into the casino and bites a huge chunk out of your leg. Do you fold and go right to the hospital or do you finish the hand first? Does the fact that your hand will be made obvious by the fact that you didn't go to the hospital compensate for a great deal of equity? Would you be more likely to finish out the hand if the other players didn't know that there was a giant chunk missing out of your leg? Interesting theoretical question here. Oh, and it's still more likely than 9 players going all-in in front of you in a SNG.
Lady luck's my fuck-buddy.

Reread the OP. EVERYONE went all-in preflop.

I would say the clear answer here is to ....Run to the bathroom and gag yourself until you vomit, piss yourself , then run back to your desk and beat yourself over the head with a frying pan....when you come to, the SNG will be over.....and you'll smell like a baby.
