Ok, not whining about getting beat, it happens.
Not gonna say it was a bad call, they won, therefore, how bad could it have been?
Anybody play this different?
Maybe all in post flop with top pair?
Was happy about the call, just not the river, lol!!!!
Let me know what you think!!!

You got all your money in while you were ahead with TPTK, not a great hand to go broke with but they sucked out not much to say. Maybe next time wait for a stronger hand to risk your whole tournament on. Then again this is a freeroll and from what I hear not the strongest fields of players.

Nothing different happening here no matter what you do. This was a FR and all villian thought was "I have two high cards, they are suited, and I hit a pair". Nothing else crossed his mind. You could have shoved on the flop and he'd have called and sucked out on you. Don't give this any more thought Also, don't look at the results of the hand as a factor in whether you played a hand well or not. You can play any hand perfectly and lose, it doesn't change the fact you played the hand perfectly. Just say no to results orientation.

I'd have maybe bet less on the flop, 400 or so. If he still check raises then, well, you have more of a decision to make as you're not quite as pot comitted as you were with your 600 bet. You'd still have 800 left behind with blinds of 25/50, which isn't great, but recoverable.

Yeah you can meet very different types of players on freerolls mostly bad than good but in conclusion I think you played the hand good (I would probably played it out the same), you just didnt have luck...

Here's where you and I part ways; there's $675 in the pot and your holding $1,245 with TPTK while sitting between both Chip Leaders in a Freeroll. This isn't a time to pot your bet because there's enough money in the pot to make it worth your while. Additionally, it's going to be virtually impossible for you lay this down and there's really nothing you can do with your remaining $645 anyway, so why not shove?
