It's $3.30 Progressive Knockout Tournament with 10mins blinds level and 3000 starting stack.

This is 1st hand of the game full of donks.

I raise 3x from UTG and BB shoved, should I fold or call in these spots? Coz I see it happening a lot sometimes they have pair sometimes some junk sometimes AA or KK.

Hi Adi

As frustrating as it may be We ought to fold. I don't think AQs is miles behind of his range and we quite often have the best hand in these spots but we should still fold. The bounties at this stage of the tournament are tiny and are not worth risking your entire stack for.

I would call AKs/QQ+ though.

Cheers, Chris.
