I like to just call here PF, even with all this action, in case an A falls I can get away from it. I go all in, any hand that calls me would beat me anyway.

Hi RP,

Seems to me like a hefty raise would be in order ... I know you gave your rationale of wanting to see the flop, but 99 times out of 100 you are way ahead preflop ... why not try to take it down, or to get a hand like QQ, or AK all-in as a big dog.

You have a lot more experience than me at tourneys, so I'm interested in more of your thoughts on this. Are you so confident of your edge over the field that you feel you can pass up the opportunity to press a big edge like that preflop in order to make sure you see more hands?
