This is in the late stages of the tourney, and the big stack had been very aggressive from almost any position, although he had shown down some fairly strong hands. He had previously gone all in with A7 os, so I was reading him as weak with that size raise. I was in the money but felt I needed to chip up to have any chance for a good placing.

that's a tough call to make when you're in the moment but as hindsight is 20/20 i feel you could have called pre and the bluffed him off by shoving after especially if you felt confident of his weak holding
if not you could have then folded on the bad flop and waited for one more shot

i guess what i'm saying is it was harmful leaving yourself no way out of this hand
