Hard to say, if you raised 2k and had 17 left maybe only bet 5k after the flop and then check/fold when you miss. Gotta figure if villian doesnt fold after the c raise they probably have you beat. If you had and average or better stack size then you could afford to continue with 12k. Then again im kinda nitty so.......This probably goes against conventional wisdom that says if you are going to bet more than a third of your stack you should shove but IMHO in a tourny its better to live to fight another day than get all your money in without a made hand. Then again for me its about how many BB's you have to start with, 20 or less and im probably open shoving AQ sooted and getting railed there too. LOL im rambling and need more coffee.
