$Freeroll NLHE MTT: $Freeroll NLHE MTT: I call re-raise all-in on flop with high card Ace

It often happens that you enter with a semi-bluff and they all-in in response. What is better to do in such cases?

Tons of mistakes in this hand - with around 13-14bb to start the hand we should NOT be opening A4o. If we do, we should be pushing not raising.

Secondly - preflop bet sizing is too big - we opened 3x when we are super short and should be opening 2x here to allow ourselves a little room to raise-fold when we get caught.

Lastly...what is our opponent raising us with on the flop that we beat? If we just wanted to punt our stack off to a better hand we should have done this preflop - at least then we have a little fold equity.

Just raise 2x if you are going to raise this hand - though I do not advise it - then check-fold the flop and move on.

Thank you for your comments. I understand that I played very badly, and I understand that I generally should not have played this hand.
