Its really difficult to read that hand history, so why not use the free hand history converter on CC next time? Anyways here is, what I disected from the sea of irrelevant information:

* Hero is UTG+1 with AdAc and 47BB stack, and Hero open to 2,5BB

* Villain 1 call in position and has Hero covered

* Villain 2 call from big blind and has 20BB stack

* Flop comes Kh9h7s

* Villain 2 donk lead for 7BB into a pot of 8,6BB

* Hero now move all in

* Villain 1 fold and Villain 2 call

Here is my take on the hand:

Preflop
Standard open, and I like the 2,5BB size. Two players call, great lets take a flop.

Flop
I am never folding AA to Villain 2, when he only starts the hand with 20BB, but I think, you are almost forcing V1 to play well, when you jam all in, before the action has even gotten to him. Is he really giving you action with anything other than the hands, that beat you? I dont think so, at least not if he is competent.

So I prefer to just call here to induce more action from V1. And also to leave myself a chance to get away on a bad runout, or get to showdown without risking my entire stack. You start the hand with 47BB, and this is a bit deep to mindlessly stack off an overpair in a single raised pot, at least in a tournament.

Results
So Villain 1 had top pair, and he improved to two pair on the river to crack your aces. That obviously sucks, but its also a completely normal part of poker, and against him it was just a setup or cooler. He cant get away from his top pair either, and it sucks for him, that he ran it into aces. Maybe his donk bet is not the best strategy, but even a good player goes broke in his spot, unless he hit that miracle card on the river.

The more important point to take away is, how you played the hand against V2, and I think, it was far from optimal. It seem like, you were panicking about the draws on the board and just wanted V2 to fold, so you did not get outdrawn. But the goal in poker is not to win hands, its to win money. And the way, you played your hand, you almost turned it into a value bluff, which is pretty bad.

Hello, I think that we can play like hero here with pocket AA. On the flop are some draws to flush. I think that we can raise our opponent on the flop or play raise allin. I think that we should here protect our hand, because if I good see one player is in position behind hero. Opponent has about 10k chips in stack, he plays donk bet for about 1/3 of his stack and he bets for more than 50% of the pot, so he is a little committed with a pot and he often should call our raise allin. So I think that hero played even good this hand. GL :)

This is quite usuaal situation in poker and you got unlucky but still you were ahead with your aces and your opponent got second pair.So no time to stop,just go for another tourney and crush there!
