      Welcome to the forum!

      Did you go all-in preflop or postflop? If you would post a hand history for this hand someone might be able to help out.

      If you stacked with AA preflop it's almost never a mistake (unless in a satellite bubble very close to ticket)

      But it usually isn't a good idea to stack off >200bb deep with an overpair postflop if facing strong action.

      Best way to play tournaments (especially the deep stacked ones) is to play pretty tight in the beginning - even though it might be hard to fold AA postflop (those two aces do look so pretty... :f_biggrin: ) you usually can afford to wait for a better spot.

      I'm not saying you shouldn't bet but if raised and there's high possibility that your opponent has a better hand, it isn't necessarily a bad idea to fold.
