A9 raised preflop/flop/turn and was pushed on turn, had hit ace
Ok, so this is what was happening. I had just few hands beforehand knocked two players out and consequently almost tripled up. This made me the chip leader on my table by far; I think about two players had about half my stack and the rest probably had about a quarter of my stack. There were 7 players including me all up. I had knocked out the aggressive players out, so there were 2 calling stations and 3 loose passive players who could be aggressive under the right scenarios, which rarely happened it seemed(they weren't calling stations because they knew how to fold)
So, a new player came to the table, he is the 7th player. He had about double my chip stack so I was a little concerned. The game, which was a live game, had been going for about 45 minutes at that time, so it was very likely that he was simply a donkey that doubled up fast. I had no reads whatsoever about this player; I never played/seen him before. I complimented him on his large stack to which he said something like, (nah, this is nothing) This game me the impression that he's probably aggressive/confident. He was sitting on the left to me.
The hand after he sat down I was dealt A9 suited; I was two positions before the button, and I can't remember if one of the calling stations to the right of me limped in or not, I don't think they did though because I cannot remember them calling the flop. Sorry for not be sure of this vital piece of information. The blinds where 300/600 and it was a turbo tournament; I had 15000 chips and decided to raise it to 1500. The new player to the table called me and the flop came AQ10 rainbow. I made a continuation bet of 2000 chips to which he called. I was a bit concerned here because I realised many hands had me beaten but I raised once again to 3500 on the turn, he then pushed all in. The turn was a blank card. I had no reads on him whatsoever, but I thought that I would be beaten here a great deal of the time. I had 7000 chips left and there would have been 11400 chips in the pot. I decided to call since I thought I could not fold and I guess I was hoping he had a weak ace or just a crap player trying to chase a draw or something(it was at a pub game and there are some wild plays at times)
Did I make the correct play here? I was asking my peers and one of them said that I was not position; I thought that that was a decent position but he said that it was not good enough and I should have just called rather then raised. Opinions anyone? Oh, and did I miss out any information? I wasn't close to the bubble at all.
