I was playing in a tournament. About 115 players started each getting 5000 chips. There was about 45 players left and I had just been moved to a different table, I had 17000 in chips. The blinds were now 1000/2000. The second hand after I sat down I was the big blind and was dealt pocket Aces. One player bet 2000, all others including the small blind folded.
What bet should I make?
The player who bet 2000 had more chips than me but I'm not sure how much as I had just been moved to the table.
In the actual game, I raised to 5000 (an additional 3000). The other player called. The flop was K, J, 7 all different suits. I bet 2000, the other player called. The turn was a 5, I bet another 2000. The other player raised another 3000. This left me with 5000 so I went in all. The other player called. He showed K, 3 not suited.
My bad luck, the river card was a 3 and I was knocked out.
Should I have bet differently? Should I have gone all in before the flop?
