I make min bet and get minimum raised. I move in. MY thinking is I have best hand and if I can get a call I am in commandinf first or I pick up pot so he doesnt draw. I get minimum raised so often with trash that maybe I didn't heed the raise like I should have (obviously).I am interested in any feed back.I went out 7th but I like to win. I could have folded to top 3 but that isn;t my style.
Bottom 2 pair is a strong hand, but analyze it based on hands that can beat you, and you'll see that you've overplayed it in the face of a reraise. You ddidn't say, but I'm assuming the villain held a J-9, in which case you were puffing nearly dead(4 outer), about a 5-1 dog. Under those conditions, yeah, too fast
, which by the way is correct. To fast
involves going without food; uncomfortable perhaps, but won't knock you out of a tourney unless you faint.
