My 3rd live tournament
Just got back from my 3rd ever live tournament after playing online for around 7-8 months
1st tournament i made the final table and cashed , 2nd i finished in about 40th place, tonight i finished on the bubble in a £25 +£3 tournament with around 55 runners.
Is this decent for a live tournament begginer? (lets be honest im a begginer full stop haha)
Also i have a hand to run by you guys,
8 handed game
My stack :60-65 k
opponents stack : 40k ish
On the final table, i was under the gun with pocket 66's as one of the chip leaders, i raised 2.5x BB in knowing that my table were playing tight hoping to make the cash, to my suprise a relatively tight player in mid position raised all in for his remaining stack
After a long stare down i noticed his refusal to look at the table and his heavy breathing, i decided to make the call leaving me with around 3BB if i lost the hand
He turns over A10o flop comes K57 turn A river X
He takes down the pot and i bust next hand with AKs to the same guys QQ
Did i make the right decision by calling him here?
