AK in early tournament stage
I have a couple thoughts that may help you out a little. If you don't agree, I'm sorry for wasting your time.
Basically what I am picking up on from your description:
It is early in the tournament so it's nearly impossible to be able to decipher what people's opening ranges are, assuming you haven't played with them before, which is normal in low stakes.
Micro stakes is going to have players who are not thinking high level analysis
Range, ICM, position and stats don't matter all the much until the tournaments break down (all the clowns who are just trying to spike a few hands early to give them a chip stack to work with are either stacked or busted and you won't have to risk your stack every hand and you can play poker, not bingo.... Lol)
The AK you are holding preflop sure has plenty of equity, but, but, but!!!!
You still have to remember it's technically only A high.
I noticed your postion was not indicated but it doesn't matter much here, but people acting after you is very risky so you made the right move by raising to get them out . However, I think it's early to move in here because even winning this hand won't really improve your chances of winning the tournament, it will make it easier sure , but there is still a lot of navigation left.
Here is where I'll posit my opinion on your play.
11x Bb is 20% of your stack.
not to mention your implied odds
are good, but only assuming you spike an A or K on a rainbow, non strait type of board.
A high is a tough hand to win at showdown in micro because it's notorious for players to make decisions oblivious to what an opposition may be doing.
With a pot swelling, you
have a very high chance of having to risk your entire stack in this pot before you know how your hand plays post flop.
And a raise in front of you that big is representing strength in early postion which is almost always going to be accompanied by a hefty continuation.
If you don't hit, you're now in a postion to commit more chips to ,still hopefully, spike a card that may( help someone else, help you but not enough)
So, IBecause it is so early, and there are going to be better times to put your stack in. The only two options i consider are flating and folding. The remaining people behind you will flat a hand with equity and/or shove with strong hands. So, you having been prepared to ship it( and I know it's better to go all in than to call all in) you are -already ready to commit your stack preflop anyway, so if someone did ship it after you would actually be in a better spot because you would be able to gain information from the opponents who acted before you and access whether moving in is right.( which this early is really not the most profitable or beneficial to the long run)
Basically if I were In your shoes, or when I was in your shoes i should say
I would have let it go.
AK holds equity, but you have to hit or you're flipping.
You make more extracting from opponents when you have it or you know they don't, than you do trying to flip for it.
It's a bummer to let it go, especially of its the first action hand you get.
But tournaments are about the long haul, don't get yourself in a risky spot early.
Hope I helped bud. Great question!
And this is of course all my opinion on what has worked for me and from my research. if you don't agree, that's cool just throwing my analysis out there.
