      Hey guys,

      just trying to get better at the newbie levels, since I'm new myself and had an interesting hand just now and am wondering if I could have gotten away with slightly less losses and want to make sure in the future I play this appropriately :)

      Was a MTT 0.10$ 360 Player Turbo in the early stages and am wondering if I should have played out the flop differently rather than commit everything. Comments and critique welcome and thanks for all the help!

      PokerStars - 15/30 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (MP): 50 BB

      I have moved your hand to our tournament hand discussion forum, because it fits better there.

      Only problem is that you don’t block the flush draws, but with this chip dynamic and in a 10c 360 man you could be easy in front if someone leads in to you on a wet board like this. I would play this hand the same way.

      Cheers,

      Flush & straight draw anyway, you were too behind and @this level, they'll never fold

      That’s nasty, but I don’t know how much MTT's you are playing.
      You need to play a crazy amount of MTT’s to kill the variance.
      Especially with tournaments over 1k players.
