Should I have called and try to double up or wait for another spot?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t200 (3 handed) converter (http://www.selachian.com/tools/bisonconverter/hhconverter.cgi)

BB (t4810)
Button (t4925)
Hero (t3765)

Preflop: Hero is SB with K/images/graemlins/heart.gif, A/images/graemlins/diamond.gif.
Button calls t200, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t900</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Button raises to t4925</font>, Hero calls t2865 (All-In).

y don't u just push PF instead of raising if u were going to put it all in there anyway (i'm assuming u really didn't just want a caller, but a pusher)...

i'm asking this because i don't know. not because you "played it poorly"

AK is a monster three handed in the money. I would insta call. Sometimes he has AA or KK and I think you just take your lumps when it happens. Folding off 1/4 of my stack ITM isn't something I would want to do either.

I had almost 19bb, I thought it was too much to push. After thinking about it more, pushing might be a better option
