$165 buy in live MTT game
I was playing at a $165 tournament live game with around 300 players. I knew it was a good value game because so many people in the tournament were free rolling from satellite tickets.
The hand played out like this: Blinds were 200 - 400. 3rd level of blinds of the tournament.
MP2: Raises to 1,000, HJ calls, CO calls.
Hero:Button: With KK(45,000). I 3-bet to 4,000.
Villain in BB raises to 12,000(80,000). MP2 folds and HJ folds and CO folds.
I think out playing in position with KK but i thought the SPR would be really small and i would need to really call his all in if there is no Ace of on the Flop or if it its a cold deck.
I jam and he snaps with AA. Flopping a set and leaving me to drawing dead on the turn.
Should i have waited for a better spot and just flat? Play in position and evaluate situation. I have been wondering about this hand for two weeks
