  • How would you play this hand?

    Hi there,

    I'd like to know people's opinion about this hand.
    It got me kicked out of the premier leage in 96th position.

    I'm in 17th position, stack = +7000 and 97 players left
    I have KQs on the SB and call 1800 pre flop
    The flop shows T-K-8
    my opponent's stack is about the same size, but I suspect him of trying to steal the blinds.
    Having toppair and Q-kicker, I go all in (+5000 left, pot sized bet)
    My opponent calls and shows AK !

    Should I have played this more carefully?
    Or was I right by thinking that chances of him having AK (or AA) are so small, it's worth taking the risk?
    after all, if I bet less and fold for his raise (almost sure to come with AK), I have hardly anything left to keep on playing (3-4 BB).
    Your advise/opinions please!
    Thank you.

    KQ off in small blind - around 11xBB - looks good to me
