Background information:
kl111 appears to be a solid player, e.g. raising 4bbs with quality hands, etc. - one or two strange things though such as pushing his KK even after an ace appears on the flop.
k411 very loose, aggressive has shown bluffs and re-bought into the tourney 6 times (in first 30 mins).

What is the best play here? Call, raise by how much,or fold.

def push here. two pair on the flop is lots to get your stack in there in a rebuy.

Push. Looks like a good opportunity to double up.

In a rebuy tourney, you have to be prepared to accept a higher level of risk than you would in a freezeout. The first hour is about accumulating a good-sized stack if at all possible, so that you can tighten up and choose your moments after the break.

Rebuy? Push all the way. Especially if he already has shown a tendancy to rebuy.

Thanks for the comments. My thoughts on this were: didn't put anyone on high ace, KQ or pair above 99 because they would have bet against my small stack pre-flop. So when k411 bet, I though he had made at best a pair. So if he had Q+, I was well in front and if he had K+, I had to just avoid his kicker or pairing the board, thereby counterfeiting my 22. So the choice was to call or raise - with a call I was 100% sure he would put me all-in on the turn so it was an all-in bet. (About time he gave me some of those free chips!)

The next action was:

Rifle35692 is all-In [2140]
kl111 calls [2140]

I was worried by this as it implied Kl111 was on a draw whether a flush or str8 I didn't know.

k411 is all-In [4530] - LAG man tries to throw the big stack off (thanks - I'd sooner be tackling one villain here).

kl111 calls [3190]

Obviously, K411 does not know about pot-odds as kl111 is obviously going to call if he puts K411 on a pair like I did and has a draw himself.

Hands shown:

k411 shows [ Kh, 8h ] 12.3%
Rifle35692 shows [ Kd, 2h ] 49.3%
kl111 shows [ 7s, 9s ] 38.4%

So the main aggressor here had by far the worse hand, the rest as they say is immaterial.

Oh and btw, K411 rebought for the 7th(?) time.
