I'm playing a 2.20 tourney where the blinds increase every 15min. I have about 100BB and konkitos shoves, I didn't want to risk a little less than half my stack on a coin flip plus there was the possibility of Fedorav calling the shove. Did I make the right play or should have I risked doubling up?

Great fold. It's way too early to be in a coin-flop against even 1 opponent... let alone two.

It's not worth putting that many chips into a pot where you will win only 38% of the time. You've got plenty of chips to wait and get them into a better situation (where you are ahead in the hand).

I've played and cashed in that $2.20 tourney ALOT. Trust me on this, be patient in the beginning, then open up your game later in the tourney and you'll do just fine in it.
