Hi everyone just thought I would ask you guys if I should have made a bigger raise pre flop or if i should of done anything better, the villain was pretty much a calling station and pretty loose in general but I think either I lost my bottle or I just thought he had too many rag aces in his range its a 100k freeroll that I'm playing right now wasnt too deep were down to around 2k left at the point I had kk but thankfully after a few card dead orbits I clawed some chips back thanks in advance http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...808_2F6F0EC302

3-4 BB pre-flop raise would have been more appropriate, or an all-in, since they get very intimidated in a tournament when someone does that. If done the latter, you would have had an easy pot. However, I like the information bet on the flop that you did. The call was okay, however the reraise was strong enough to reconsider the choice. I know the turn is a good fold since it was a pretty wet board, you would have had trouble calling again, even without the ace there.
