AQ button minraise
Ok at a local freeroll tournament, its down to 20 people 4 tables (8 people max) Its a turbo style tournament blinds increasing rather fast.
The blinds had just increased to 500/1000 and im sitting on a little over 6bb on the button with A
Q[image: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/smilies/heart.png] . The BB is short stacked with about 4 bb and SB is average on about 12bb. I had only played one hand at the table so far.
My logic here was min raise cause they didnt know my game and induce a re-steal.
instead they both called and we saw the flop.

SB checks, BB takes his time fondling his chips i can tell he is thinking about pushing so i put him on a weak ace. He finally decides to push for 2200 and i instant call him. After i instant called him i immediately knew i should have reshoved him to knock the other player out and now i was pot committed with a chance of being called and seeing a card i dont want. SB considers what to do for a long time then finally reluctantly makes a call. so i put him on a king.

Im devastated as i can see SB thinking about how to get the rest of my chips into the middle while he fondles his chips. After a while i tell him to just push im pot committed and have outs even if he has the king. he obliges and reveals KQo.

and im out.
Would you guys have played it differently?
was i right to have told him to put me all in or should i have waited to see if i could get a free card?
Should i have reshoved the flop?
Would you have folded the turn with only 2 bb remaining?
