    Final (taking the low), penultimate or late hand - One Advance or Two Advance. That's a lot of combinations, so from your experience, maybe answer the scenario you know best rather than my specific scenario. Thanks.

    Rule; LS is available.

    There were 4 players left and one advances. The one hand I recall and would like to reconcile was with 4 hands remaining, so there was a slim chance that half my stack with three wins on the last three hands could win me the table. I LS the 4th to last hand.

    I was all in and far behind BR1 (calm but not very knowledgeable), fairly far back of BR2 (crazy lady - hoping she would throw her chips away) and about even with BR3 who was all in (calm and smart, maybe knowledgeable). He did not LS and eventually won the table.

    The dealer showed a Ten up and all three players had poor hands. Thinking that most of the time, all players in a hand have the same result, I surrendered hoping they would all lose and I would be alive to shoot at the last three hands. BR3 would be gone, BR2 would be injured and seemed like a ploppy, and BR1 was a bit confusing to me (in hindsight, I should have known she was getting lucky, had med-low skill and would be vulnerable on the final hands).

    If we all lose the 4th to last hand, I'm out. If we all win, I am still way behind and most likely, still have to win the last three hands. It looks like the dealer is going to win so rather than be knocked out, at least I have a shot and BR1 and BR2, who would have lost some chips.

    I late surrendered. I may have been acting last but didn't note this. Thanks for some feedback.
