[A lot of callers, but no one is really showing a lot of strength PF. I believe I may have the best hand.]
*** FLOP *** [2c 3s 2d]
[I like this flop. Not a whole lot to be worried except 33, 22, or a pair over mine. I really dont see anyone with any of the the possible straight combinations calling PF.]
romeo4u: checks
LordObuma: bets 25000
[Hmmm...small bet. Looks like a feeler bet. Opponent could be on any type of straight draw as they were getting good odds to call PF with their big stack. Do I really fear a lone 2 in this situation?]
TRM_SHRiMP:
??? Do I fold or shove. Im def. not just calling here.

I wouldn't be worried about a two but I would worry about an over pair.
gut feeling call , fold or shove but I think I might fold , very easy for him to have two over cards and know you missed and has the stack to force you out though . I like to be a little more sure for my tourney life. :) jmo

Have you seen the opponent slow play AA or KK? If not then I shove here. No way the opponent has limped w/ a 2 and no way you can put opponent on just 22. This is standard play from a big stack to bet out on what looks like a missed flop and I'd narrow his range to JQ+, 77-TT.

Reads on flop betting villain? His stack is pretty sizable, so he could be making this play with AJish hands or a lower pair.

And I agree, this is certainly a shove or fold situation. I like shoving this. The only problem with it is that we don't have a whole lot of fold equity, so its going to be hard to get hands like TT to fold to our shove. But for low buyin tourneys where simply making the money doesn't cut it, I like getting our money in here.

Shove. He could easily have 44-99. JJ you should be worried about but not enough to stop you from shoving. QQ-AA would have probably reraised preflop.

Yeah definitely all-in babay, cause at this MICRO-level opponents generally aren't sophisticated enough to slowplay extremely high pairs preflop, so you have to put him on two unpaired overcards or something and one hand you have to fear is A 2 suited, pretty much the only hand he could be in there with thats ahead ::))))), but if you are feeling the tournament situation generates such a move, then definitely AW in.
