definitely not an easy fold, especially since it's a freeroll.

What I would recommend is raising more preflop. Good rule of thumb is 3x + number of limpers. In this hand, raise 3x if no limpers. Since there were 3 limpers, good size raise is 3+3 or 6x, or 180 chips. Possibly even larger since it's early on. Other people may tell you differently, but this is my strategy.

Your main goal early on in a tournament is to hit two pair or better and double up. I generally only raise JJ+ and AQ+ until the 3rd level. limp the lower pairs for set mining.

This spot is really read dependent. Have you seen your opponent shoving often? Or has he been rarely getting aggressive postflop unless he has a monster?

I generally call this all in more often than not. If flop is like A26 with flush draw I call almost everytime. If flop is like AQJ or AJT I fold a good majority of the time. This flop is kind of in between.

Since only 3 people saw the flop, I'm more likely to call. If it were like 5 or 6, I fold everytime. Also, in the future hide your opponent's hand in your post so the replies you get aren't biased.

Don't get frustrated if you call and are behind.

Why? I don't believe posting the opponent's had would bias any opinion, if anything not posting may confuse some as to what he was laying down to, and the outcome. :confused: I do agree w/ your statement re: freeroll. the first hour is usually donk filled calling, raising, and all-ining, so it's hard to put any kind of decent read on folks.

Great hand pre-flop, better hand on flop - had to think it was against weak ace, or possibly 2 small pair. In the end it was a coin flip to proceed or fold. Hand got smoked....sorry.

Have to agree with CF, early freeroll you can expect to see just about anything happen. Preflop bet should have been a bit larger to chase away small pockets, but then again in a freeroll there is always a strong chance villian might have called an allin preflop with his pocket 7's.

It was just one of those hands....(that remind me why I dislike AK in freerolls,lol)

you still have 1 card to come!:p lol but it's hard to throw away TPTK there, and the only hands that beat you are ... well one your opponent had. That's poker sometimes.
