I hate the way I played this, and I'm pretty sure I played every street wrong. It's fairly early in the tourney but I had a tight image and villian was sort of tricky, but fairly aggressive (He got his stack by limping in with K-K and getting it all in on the turn on a 7h-10d-2d-2h board). Table was pretty tight for a 22 table.

Preflop do I reraise? Is the call ok? I didn't want to reraise because it would be a significant portion of my stack and I would be tied to the pot (?).

How about the flop/turn/river? Do I throw in a raise somewhere? Fold the turn? Help a SNG newb out!

I'd reraise here to about 350-400. That obviously does commit a lot of your stack...but this is a 22, where players raise with all sorts of stuff early on...and it's a tricky, big stack player who may already feel invincible and may well throw in with something like tens. If he does throw in, obviously, you'd call it...if he shows aces or kings...well, that just happens sometimes. Maybe you'll suckout. But you're ahead with QQ a lot more often than you're behind. And this flop is exactly why I wouldn't mind getting my money in there PF.

I love the unformatted eurobet hand histories. Also I think calling preflop is quite weak. I would move allin.
