      I think i played pretty good in the whole tourney. I am not sure about this hand.
      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em Tournament, 5000/10000 Blinds 1000 Ante (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG+1 (t120854)
      MP1 (t224215)
      MP2 (t535504)
      MP3 (t204488)
      Hero (CO) (t138256)
      Button (t159888)
      SB (t109116)
      BB (t119828)
      UTG (t489144)

      Hero's M: 5.76

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J, A
      2 folds, MP1 bets t25775, 2 folds, Hero raises to t137256 (All-In), 3 folds, MP1 calls t111481

      Flop: (t298512) 6, 5, 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Turn: (t298512) 5 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: (t298512) K (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: t298512

      What do you think about this push? My image was tight...since i was card dead for the last hour. The villain is a kind of unknown. I saw him double up with AA vs AK few hands before. Do you guys threat raise from unknown in early position as very good hand? If it was earlier in the MTT i would probably just call but here...it was push or fold for me. Maybe been card dead influenced my decision.

      P.S. Finished 150th from around 21 000...ohh well, i will win it some day.

      against an unknown player since he is raising from mp1 and you have a stack to still work with I think folding AJs is better , it's either way behind or flipping against his range imo.

      congratulations on your deep run , too bad you lost before the big moneyz.

      Thanks for the reply, alejandrosh.
      After i thought about the hand i agree with you but...at that moment i thought it is probably a coin flip and i have fold equity to push him away from small to medium pp or even AQ. Anyway...i got impatient and AJs looked so pretty to me. :)
      Still disappointed i played 6 hours my A-game and then blew it.

      Unless he's LAG I'd fold...MP1 raise shows some strength, and I think your cards are actually at the bottom of his range, ie. AJ+ 88+. So either he makes a tough laydown, you're coinflipping or you're dominated. Also..you're stack is still pretty solid.

      dont like calling with AJ , is a tough spot though particular when been card dead for ages & with only 7 hands to worry about ( take a coinflip here )

      comes down to reads , you can still see a flop here but prefer to push or fold but if you know he plays big hands fold it because chances are he has AK or big pair

      Calling here is out of question since i didn't want to be in a situation where i throw 1/5 of my stack and induce another caller or to be squeezed. I know against solid player i am in his bottom range but i saw so many loose raises and funny plays so i opt to push and hope for 50 50. But again the guy was unknown i had to give him more respect.
