It's a little over 2 hours into a big MTT, 900 players start, about 200 left, I'm ranked about 80th. My stack is 10,000 and average is about 8k. Blinds and antes total 1,050 so my M is exactly 10. I'm under the gun with JJ and raise 4x BB. The very next player, who also has about 10k in chips, calls everyone else folds. So the pot is about 4200 and I have about 8400 left. Flop came 10 10 2 rainbow, I bet nearly the entire pot he calls. Turn is an ace. Pot is almost 12,000 now, and I have about 4,000 left. I feel I'm pot comitted at this point so I go all in, he calls with AQ and wins. I felt there was a chance he had 99 88 77 or 66, those would have called a bet on the flop, I figured AK or AQ would have folded, so he probably doesn't have an ace. Obviously he made a mistake calling on the flop, he wasn't even getting 2:1 and he was 7:1 to pair one of his high cards on the turn. But did I do anything wrong? Should I have made an overbet on the flop or bet exactly pot? Should I have check folded on the turn and tried to play with about 4,000 chips?
