The idea behind the interactive hand is good but this example fails imo. I doesn't tell us what the blind level is or what happened preflop so putting your opponent on a range is harder.
I chose to call. Normally I would say you've committed so much it's either shove or fold. But I think the raise on the river is just too strong even for a flush. Very good case for a fold since your opponent isn't going to raise with a worse hand unless they think you're weak. If they hit a Q they would surely just call the river. But having committed so many chips it would be hard not to put in 7000 with a pot of 4x that.
But the vid is a total fail because the call amount is wrong (6000 instead of nearly 7000) and after you call it tells you that calling is the wrong option. It says 8000 isn't holding enough chips back to play. Well I assume that leaves us at least 20 big blinds (as it's hard to tell from the vid) so I disagree. No point in throwing the tournament away cos you're scared to play short stack. But anyway I chose to raise instead only to find the raise button no longer works and I have to fold to see the cards.

I Put villain on QJ or j7, but really, you're always going broke on that hand, just too many hands that you dominate in that spot. Didn't watch the real hand playout, can't stand watching annette play, she grosses me out.
