Too big of a pfr? I thought maybe it was due to my stack size. I was utterly surprised neither of them called me.

Its more trying to figure out why 1 raised ( maybe steal) a caller to his raise, but neither of them call my re-raise. I wanted to play 1 of them :( :( :(

prikken was very aggro and the other guy was solid but not too loose, also quite aggro.

Or maybe a call would have been good enough hmmm? I didnt think so but what do I know.

You raised a raise from UTG that indicates a very strong hand, also you were the short stack so they know if they call your bet you are going all the way with this hand. Just what I see. You might have called then checked the flop hoping someone bets out with no A on the board then shove all-in. That is the only way I can see you getting the most chips in here.

Nothing wrong with the raise IMO, you won the hand instead of just calling and allowing an ace to drop on the flop and one of the other players hitting their ace

Nothing wrong with the way you played it. I suspect that this time neither had a hand worth playing for all your chips and since you're raise pretty much commits you they were smart enough to fold.

In this particular case, a minraise might have been a better move. More than likely called by UTG. But if UTG is playing Ax and an Ace shows, your stuck.

It looks like you pulled a perfect squeeze on them, though you might not have intended it.

Never played a $50 tourney online, butI imagine the players at that level should be able to recognise just how difficult a position you're putting them in? You've actually got them worried about each other as well as you.

It wouldn't be unreasonable to credit at least one of them with an ace, so if you flat call and an ace flops you're in a hard place. There's probably more value to be had here, but there's a much greater increase in risk as well to get it.

Yeah the call was in the back of my head, this was my 2nd KK you see, I did this method last time I encountered an A on the flop and 2 betters before me thus sending me to a quick /fold.

Better to win small in this than to lose big. I have the same problem a lot of the time when you finally pick up big hand and no body wants to play the hand you.

it was the correct play, like the others say you dont want an ace hitting and u either being stuck on fold or stuck out of the tourney if u push all n after flop regardless of the ace

You bet into a pot that is just about a third of your stack and you take it down uncontested? I'll take that all day!
