    You made the correct play.

    That early in a tourney, without a made hand, you need to muck it. AKo vs three random hands will win less than 40% of the time. And this early in a tourney, they could have ATC, so you need to look at their range as anything.

    Yes, you had the best hand, but it is not worth playing for all your chips without a made hand. If others want to do it and donk themselves out, then let them... sit back, relax, get a made hand, then take their chips.

      when they show the cards that they did, make a note to yourself about what the opponent would push with. That kind of info will help you later in the tourney, as you will now know some of their tendencies and have an idea what they will blindly push with.

      pushes any A, any 2 suited, etc are great notes to have.... because if you get into a post-flop situation with them... you'll have more info to judge whether to bet, check or fold. If they'll play any A and you get an A on the flop... if you can't beat a pair of aces, you need to muck... for example.

                            It's either a fold or a shove. A call would be horrible. Unless you know these guys are good or tight, I'd opt for a shove here. Their raise sizing indicates that they are not good.

                            There's enough money in the pot that a shove has to be +EV. I don't even care if I get called by JJ. The only hands I'd be worried about are AA and KK and since you have one of each it makes it less likely that someone has two.

                            This early in a freeroll so many bad players are overplaying any two broadway hands, any ace, etc. A range you absolutely crush. I'm happy to get it in here. I'm not passing up a nice edge like this one.
