Default too much? Level I 3xPOT push.

first level 10/20, $100+8, starting stack 2000, PR 10 man tourney.

I push 2k into 800 in a multiway pot. Is this way out of line, standard? I don't play NL or tourneys so I'm rather clueless.

Seat 1: SB ($1,550 in chips)
Seat 2: BB ($2,000 in chips)
Seat 3: Hero [7H,7C] ($2,240 in chips)
Seat 4: UTG+1 ($2,620 in chips)
Seat 5: UTG+2 ($1,950 in chips)
Seat 6: MP1 ($1,720 in chips)
Seat 7: MP2 ($1,850 in chips)
Seat 8: MP3 ($1,900 in chips)
Seat 9: CO ($1,980 in chips)
Seat 10: Button ($2,190 in chips)

Hero [7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img],7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]] ($2,240 in chips)
SB posts blind ($10), BB posts blind ($20).

PRE-FLOP
Hero calls $20, UTG+1 calls $20, UTG+2 calls $20, MP1 folds, MP2 bets $75, MP3 calls $75, CO folds, Button folds, SB calls $65, BB calls $55, Hero calls $55, UTG+1 calls $55, UTG+2 calls $55.

FLOP [board cards A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img],7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img],10[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] ] (T525, 7 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, UTG+2 bets $90, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $90, SB calls $90, BB calls $90, [b]Hero bets $2,165 and is all-in.

You need to protect your hand but this is somewhat excessive

I would bet out on the flop. About 350-400. If someone raises me then, I'm pushing.

I agree betting this flop is the right move. There are 7 people on this flop. One of them is going to have an ace and the odds of someone having a flush/straight draw are also really high. Put a bet of 250-400 in and if you get reraised you have an easy push. One thing I really don't like about the check raise here is that most people will not ever give you credit for a flush draw here. To me the check raise screams Ak, 2 pair or trips. If you push all in I might give you credit for Axs.

With your line of action, I am not sure what the right course of action is. The pot is like 880. I think with 4 callers already, you have to raise. The only question is how much. I would either pot it or push. The argument for pushing is that picking up 880 chips here is a pretty good outcome. The potting argument would be unless you are up against a higher set (or something like 89s) you are a big favorite here so might as well try to suck some more money out. The downside is that I think a 900 bet doesn't give you a whole lot of stack to to push people off on the turn ( the pot will be ~2600 and you will have ~1200 chips). A smaller bet 400-500 would give the flush draw decent odds to call but would preserve the option of folding. I think out of position, I am more in favor of pushing. If I was in position I would be more likely to pot it.
