I know I know, I should have raised preflop. I just get screwed raising AK alot of the times I treat it like 22.

So besides not raising preflop. How could I have gotten away from this hand with a smaller loss?

I know this is probably really basic. I've never really posted a hand history asking for advice. So I thought this would be a good hand for some analysis.

Thanks in advance! :)

you answered your own question. you should have raised preflop. but since you didn't. you could check to control the pot size on such a straight and flush draw board, as the blinds could have anything. chuckt's wrote a great thread about checking behind to control the pot size if you are unsure of your hand. i'll see if i can dig it up for you.

it was technically written for ring games but i think it's relevant here.

controlling pot size

^ You can not control a player that stays with king 4 , but you can influence pot control. Next time remember to raise preflop. You will lose a portion of suck out artist perhaps.
Just my 2 cents

he didn't stay with K4, he was the big blind and saw a free flop.

with no raise preflop, he has to think that his king is good. you should have raised more post flop as your hand is not unbeatable. he could have anything, 65 would have beat you.

on the turn, not only did he have top pair but an OESD. i probably would have stayed as well. in dollar tournies, if you don't play like a nit, you have to play overly aggressive and chase draws.

you lost this hand by limping, not much else you can say. you got sucked out on.

Agreed, but if I were him I would not have called the turn.
