    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    That's definitely a head scratcher

      early in a tourney, people will be playing ATC.

      If you're going to open the betting early, don't limp. Make a std raise or don't play the hand. If multiple people ahead of you limp, then it's ok, but still like raising if you're getting into the hand.

      Flopping a low full house, if you raised pre, then I don't mind the check. With limping pre, I'd be betting something here (and figuring that anyone calling has a 9 or a straight draw).

      Turn here is a bigtime scare card. If someone had a 9, then J9 is definitely in their range, which means that you'd be drawing to 1 out. I'd have just called their raise to 600 and then re-evaluate on the river.

      River pairs the board again, which means that any 9 or any J beats you. I'd have check/folded the river. You'd still have 20BB left if you have to muck, which is a playable stack, and not be out of the tourney.

      If you'd have raised pre or bet the flop, you might have saved some chips on the turn and given yourself a chance to fold either there or the river.
