        Hi Sapines,

        When you're in the first couple of levels of a big MTT like the Sunday Storm, it's very important to ensure your survival, while looking to accumulate chips when you can. You can't increase your chances in the tournament that much even if you triple up, but you can certainly reduce your equity to zero very quickly!

        I like the preflop action.

        The flop is good but not great, there are lots of straight/flush draws possible. A lot of people like to gamble early so one villain may well have a hand that hits this flop hard. I'd proceed with great caution multiway.

        I like the CBet, but unfortunately you get called in two spots. I still think you likely have the best hand at this point, but this hand will be very difficult to play Out of Position and there are lots of bad turn cards.

        The 3 isn't a great card, but not the worst as it completed none of the draws and gives you full house possibilities. I would continue to CBet to try and get value from draws and 4x.

        You still get two calls, the board double pairs and the diamond draw comes. I very much doubt your hand is good anymore, if it was ever any good. I'd check, maybe call a very small river bet to bluff catch missed straight draws/lower PPs but fold to anything more than 500 chips.
