    So. Was playing this 1.08 dollar fifty/50 tournament. Im in the big blind. DAAREALM is a loose agressive player. Raises 3BB out of position all the time. What do u think of my play? After analysing it i think i should have folded to his raise. Pro: - He is big stacked so i should not play him either way. - He will (obviously) call with anything. (I wanted him to fold to my all-in.) Con: - I have played solid and thight agressive all tournament. (image) - He should have put me on a bigger Ax than his A3s. - He had to risk his tournament life to call. What do you think? Lesson: don all-in a big stack when u are big stack yourself. I should have just played the small stacks and applied pressure. At the same time. He should have folded, because 70% of the time he would be behind with A3s. Against a thight player.

    I've played about 250 of those tournies. If you want to be better off, play tighter and let the others donk themselves out. QJ suited that early in one is way too marginal of a hand to push preflop with.

    the LAG's in them won't care what you have and will not put you on a hand better than them.... they're just like the total donks in the league games..... and don't really care about the outcome.

    Wait for a premium hand, then take their chips, or let the others KO themselves and take the small profit from it (if you don't get a premium hand).

      Agreed, you could have just called but it happens the same with that flop. Keep your chips and only try to chip up with a premium hand. Not Q high.........lesson learned. Move on!
