Is this a freeroll or buy-in? For some reason all of Tropicals tournament HH say play money.

actually...

I don't really see a problem with this play, especially in a freeroll.
Everybody signalled weak hands PF, and you got in from the BB. You flop TP but no kicker. What are the odds that either of the people who paid to see this flop have a 9 or a better pair in their hand?
Besides, when the raise gets back to you, there's 1800 PF chips in the pot, your 1200, plus the raise. That means you're calling roughly 3000 chips on a 6000 chip pot. Those aren't the worst odds, particularly in a freeroll. In a regular tourney I'd slam you fo the call, but here I think you're playing against some of the worst poker you'll ever see, so you need to call down any good hand.

your opponent should be kicking himself. PF there was a single limper and he has PP in the SB. He should have raised here, not flat-called, as he had to have the likely best hand, and could easily have taken home the BB and limper for little risk.
