I'm not sure you want to hear anything on this hand or not, but......here it is either way.
I don't like your play at all on this hand. Even though AK is a fairly strong hand preflop, you know it isn't a made Hand like a PP. I know it was a freeroll but, it seems like it was early in the tournament and you weren't short stacked.
You called after 2 others went all in front of you. I guess you were hoping to get lucky? Even the JBison's call of the allin might have been a +EV but with three allins ahead of him, IMHO it wasn't that smart. He wasn't short stack and he just got lucky to be the only pair in the hole.
I see what you mean on the hands three AK's hand in one hand and plus a KQ...............It doesn't say which site you were on, I think I would watch this site a bit more cautiously if I were you.

okie dokie, enough of my nagging :)

BTW you could also ignore what I said, because I don't always know what I am talking about somedays :D

Yes dessert I know allready I was wrong.. My intentions was just to show how many face cards were shown before pre-flop. Other then that.. I normally would have folded(hence the free roll aspect)..

I just wanted to act like the crazies, which at this point was funny to me anyway to see what everyone else was holding.

I'm not much of a texas hold'em guru, but I kind of like this play early in a tournament. Even though this was a freeroll, an early chiplead is always nice and taking a chance in order to get this is IMO rarely a bad move. of course you're not the favourite to win the pot, but in most situations you have the correct odds to call (considering your opponents are mostly donkeys). you could easely be up against several underpairs and worse A's, so in a cash game(with such bad opponents) you would probably never consider folding.

There's also a chance you're in bad shape, but I think there's a better chance you're in good shape, so push and hope you're in good shape and take down a huge pot. Remember, making the money in 5 tournyes in a row isn't as good as winning 1 and busting early in 4.
