Not much to say here really, first hand of a tourney with no player reads and you got sucked out on.

These types of shoves and calls with Ace Rags are terrible but unfortunately not uncommon in Poker.

I am never happy getting all my chips in the middle with just one pair, allbeit a premium hand like you have here. At the end of the day your just flipping and anything can happen.

If it's any consolation you were 73% favorite preflop

Snap call.

QQ would be a sigh-fold though - and AK is easy fold - imo.

In short, the only hands you should go broke with all in pre-flop on first level are kings and aces.

I agree... snap-call. In these, I'm calling a shove early with QQ+.

easy call for me if the rags hit ul move on,start of game never folding KK its a double/triple up and somethinmg to work with. RR yes its only a pr but only AA has you dominated.
was asked a question on another forum its the WSOP ME, what is the worse scenario, you are dealt AA first hand , someone shoves before you, are you going to risk it after a once in a lifetime oppurtunity to get there.
or you are on the bubble of final table and go out and win nothing (hyperthetical obv).
would you rather have a nutbuster 1 hand or have the 3 to 3 1/2 days of play.

Snap call = you don't even need to think before calling.
