Default Party $5+1 R&A: TT ITM with big stacks, villain covers me.

I just played my first ever rebuy-tournament, and maybe the fifth multi in my life, so I'm a total noob concerning the metagame and stuff like that. I did play 50+5 sng's for a living last summer though, until I "quit poker" it to study music this autumn. But sng's are a whole different ballgame, of course.

I was somewhat lost playing this hand. I felt like I should fold preflop, but couldn't do it with the stupid pot odds, my nice hand and the possibility that I was just getting restealed. Looking back at the hand now, I think maybe I should've. It seems to me that the average fish (I don't have any useful reads here [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] ) rarely reraises without something really good. He did have the stack to bully me and my raise was very stealish, but fish like to call, not raise, when they smell weakness, don't they?

<font color="#666666">6 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t11000</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">BB raises to t26000</font>, Hero calls t15000.

Final Pot: t178464

I raised all-in on the flop, the converter made some mistake.

edit: you might wanna know that I had about 2,5x the average stack, and there were 75 players or something out of 1011 left in the tournament.

Chuck, when you post hands, you will get more/better responses if you stop the action at a crucial point. In this case, either stop the action at "BB bets t31800" or at "hero raises AI to t92664". Also, if the converter makes mistakes, fix it. Type in what should be there.

As for the hand, you played it well. You're probably even getting called by a lot of overcards given the odds he has to call and the bluff possibility. Not to mention the draw-heavy board.

I think you should have round house kicked him in the face. Barring that and any other significant reads, your play is fine.
