You say nothinserious is a tight player and he is raising all-in on an early position raiser? Let's say your read is correct, and that he is in fact tight. Well then you are most likely heavily dominated by AA or KK. Good fold. Even if your read is off and he isn't that tight, he is probably pushing with a mid to low pair in which case you are little worse than a coin flip. Good fold. I think you usually have the worst of it in this case and therefore, I think this is a good fold. Think of Big Slick as that cool guy you know...well he was cool in highschool at least, now he just has a drug problem, and no matter how cool or tough he is he still needs help!

Yeah, good fold. You're not getting good pot odds and it's still early in the tournament. He probably has QQ+ juding by the way your describe the all iner.

yep good fold. Your flipping at best and the risk is too large for such a small reward at this stage in tourny

Not to mention you still have the other solid player to act behind you, who raised in very early position.

Great fold on your part. Even if your view of the player is wrong. A coin flip situation that early in the tournament for basically your whole stack is not where you want to be.

Thanks for the encouragement.

I was questioning my play for the rest of that tournament until I got out well short of the money. :(
