Did I play this Wrong?
Dont have a hand history but here's the jist of it.
1,100 people in a $10 MTT. 43 people left.
I have 23,000 in chips and Blinds are 1,000/2,000 and $50 antes. Im dealt AA one from the button. Everyone folds to me. I don't want the Blinds to see a free flop but I do want action because i consider myself shortstacked (not much more than 10 BB). I raise the minimum (I realize this always gives the BB odds
to call). Everyone folds and the BB calls, flop comes 7 2 9. BB moves allin and I call. He turns over 8 9 and catches another 9 on the turn and I'm out of the tourney.
Chip average at this time was approx. 35,000. Did I make the right move or should I always raise at least 3X the BB even though I'm likely only to rake the blinds. Give me your opinion please.
