New Tournament player - Advice please!
This is my first post so please excuse my 'noobness'!
Was wondering if I could get some input on one of my hand I played in my local tournament. I've been playing poker low key for many years, but in the last month I've joined a local league and starting playing more seriously and learning from books and forums etc...
3 handed game, I'm short stacked. I'm on BB with around 10BB's, to my left is TAG chip leader with >40BB, to his left is TAG with around 25BB.
I'm dealt 75o, chip leader flat calls, next folds, I call. Flop 10,5,2 rainbow. Try to put chip leader off pot by going all-in, chip leader instant calls with 10Qo, turn and river don't help either of us and I go out in third place.
Table was medium tight for the stage we were at, the thing was that I'd got away with a similar play earlier in the night when we were 4 handed (Pushed someone off pocket 6's when I had pair 5's post flop).
My question is with a stack that short was I right to go all in, or should I have done a 3BB bet and seen how chip leader reacted?
Thanks to all who reply
