Did i play myhand Too strong or just unlucky?
I'm nearly 21 ive been playing at casinos
for 3 years now and i play a fair bit online, i do fairly well. i do better live than i do online.
So I entered this Live tournament hosted by NPPL.No rebuy, $20 buy in 2k guranteed, 10,000 starting stack and blinds start at 50/100, around 100 players or so. This is how the very first hand went.
I had dealer position, seat 3,4,5 all limp in for 100 so theres 6 players in including me with the blinds stil yet to act. I was holding Ad,Ks...I raise to get people out of the pot, i raise to 700...to my surprise SB calls,, BB calls, and seat 3,4 and 5 all call. This puts me in a real awquard situation to start of with. Flop comes Ac, 8s, Qh so theres no flush possibility and a gutshot draw possibility, and ive hit top pair with top kicker, they all check exept seat 5 bets 3,000.... I raise all in over the top every one folds, and seat 5 again to my surprise calls, and turns over Ad, 8h... I dont hit a Q or K so i'm out of the tournament. I think i played it correctly, Should i have raised more preflop? or should i just of called the flop? Did i play it to strong? suggestions?
