Villain is fairly tight no reads at all, rule says don't risk your tournament life early but with KK I think I can do that.

You're rubbing up against falling into results oriented thinking here..."I lost,ergo I may/must have made a mistake". You didn't. Letting the bad result here make you hesitant to pull the trigger next time...THAT would be the mistake.

Say the cards were flipped over...you're 72% to double up,plus the dead money for the blinds,here. It's a turbo,why would you EVER want to fold in this spot? Turbos place an even bigger emphasis on getting paid off when you have premium hands than regular speed games do...you WANT action when you have them.

This is why BR management is so important,you need to be properly rolled to play the games you're playing in big sample sizes to flatten out the variance. This is a hugely profitable spot for us,we want to encounter it over and over again. Proper BR management allows us to shrug off the 28% of the time that it won't work out for us,instead of having to over emphasis them. The better rolled we are the less these beats matter,as repetition gets us closer to the expected norm,results wise.

Well played,don't change a thing.
