      I don't understand what blind level happened this, I supposed was in an early game due to 9 players still remain. In this case, ATs is an easy fold. You can play per top pair in a multiway pot and someone has a better kicker and played suited hands expecting flush is really dangerous.

      It is a tournament not SNG. You will play on a full table amost all the time.

      You dont have the right odds to call in this spot ILuvBeachVB. The donk bet is way to big. Just fold and find a better spot to catch the fish.

      Pre-flop you are playing 25bb effective and if the original raiser is aggressive enough this is also a spot you could consider to 3bet shove with the big antes in play. Otherwise I would most likely still fold.

      As played you have off course a flush draw, but he’s committing himself with a pot size bet and he will do that never with a hand he would fold on later streets and is folding better. Shoving what you did now is most likely the worst option.
