Finally Embracing MTT Games!!!

Hand #12 in the Open Skill Leage and I had KK.  UTG+1 raise 5x and 1 mid position called.  Should I just call or reraise or shove?  I put UTG on premium hand with an A or even an AA.  I can not just call with my KK.  I can make a raise, but then what if an A show on the flop? will I fold? Better shove my whole stack!  I looked at the tournament status and it was quite early... still have 6000+ players active.  If I lose the hand, I will definitely get a huge penalty points.  I decided to shove.

Lesson:  Point wise, maybe I should just sit out the early phase of Open Skill League and start playing when the players drop to around 3000.  I will definitely get a point and chance to go deeper into the tournament.
