This is a single table SNG right?

I'm folding this preflop. The problem with playing this hand is what ended up happening. You end up with a pretty good draw, then the turn gives you even more outs and you end up slowly leaking chips.

ahhh this is ether way you were getting the right odds to call the whole way but the big picture was you had to put 1/2 your stack so you could have folded but when I am not sure. This is really tough for me and after putting some thought into it I came to the conclusion that you should have folded on the turn. Its just too early on in the tournament to take this risk even if you are getting great odds. Overall not played badly it just hurt your overall chance of getting paid out in this tourney were able to rally your chips back?

If this was a lil later o in the tournament or a MTT an interesting play would be to raise to 180 pre-flop and then when that flop comes out push more then likely you would take down the pot right there.

I normally would fold this hand preflop.....but almost everything that you read tells you that calling here is a decent move....With that said, if this happens 5 minutes from now.....I'm relatively certain that I'll fold...

This hands seems to be an excellent example of why you want to play premium hands to me. Sure you limped and saw a cheap flop, then the whole time you are getting good odds to keep putting more chips into the pot and chase. If you fold this preflop no loss. I am learning slowly to stop chasing. For exactly the hands listed above, they make me bleed chips with nothing to show for it, just my $.02.

You could've gotten out preflop. No reason to limp with that, even in position..

yeah just fold it preflop other than that....you should have just folded on the turn why hope that one card hits your flush....obviously it didnt so maybe this will be a lesson learned in two ways....1.dont play rags in position pott odds or not....2.dont chase flush without the right amount of outs and pot odds

Since you decided to join the family pot, try imagining what might have happened if you raised it preflop to about 250. Yes it would have been a semi bluff, but with position, and outs, it wouldn't have been a totally bad move. I'd guess you would get it down to only one player, maybe two, but very possibly could have taken it down right then.

Try more raise or fold thinking.

^ I squeeze from the button so damn much and this is a perfectly ok hand to do it with, but you'd have to raise to A LOT more than 250, to 400 or more so we have some FE against these loose 3 buck peeps.

Depressing hand tho :(

I don't see a problem with it, you lose you have plenty of time with blinds like that to rebuild your stack. Personally If you are playing to win rather than just to cash I think its fine, if you win you have a massive stack and are sitting pretty, and seeing as you are getting odds to call then its no problem.
