      Hi, this is my first hand evaluation post!

      It was in the later stages of a freeroll qualifier. There were 35/200 people (probalby 10 of those had sub 1k left too!) left and 20 qualified. I was sitting about 20th. Thinking of it isolated like that, playing this hand as I did was not necessary.

      But I was trying to ignore the tournament situation and play as I should for a cash game. Even though I guess it's also messed up because the big blind is up to 300.

      I'd just been switched tables and didn't have much info on opponents. I'd seen UTG playing most hands (high vp & pr) and assumed he was playing mroe hands stronger than they were because of his larger stack.
      I'm not sure how I should have played after the flop.

      This is nl cashgames forum, but since I have played a lot of touraments I can also give you advise.

      Since it is satellitte then it does not matter if you finist 1st or 20th. With 15bb you can likely fold every hand and make still top 20 (especially if 10 players had 3bb or less remaining). So in 5-way pot safest play would be c/f all the way.

      If I would bet out I would not make larger than 1.1k that leaves me 10bb and I can safely fold to shove. Since you got called two players I think you can also consider c/f turn, since better hands would not fold and you don´t want to risk your turnament life with marginal hand (if you can wait a lot better situation where to put your money in with fold equity)

      best regards,
