Online Tourney Starting Field 1397 8-max
Midtourney Position 400/700 w/ BOUNTY
UTG+1 V1 151BB raises 2,5 BB
LJ V2 37BB calls
HJ V3 38BB calls
CU V4 41BB 3Bets to 8BB
BB Hero 35BB AQs (Clubs) call 8BB
Flop: Qs 7c Qh Pot: 37BB
V4 call with AA
So Big Pot 98BB hauled in, but would you have played differently Preflop or Flop or Turn
My thinking process was:
Preflop: Pretty confident V4 had a Very Strong Hand but other Vs would not shove over me. And thus, the odds were amazing.
Flop: Hoping V4 had KK (I block 1 Ace) . Or JJ and would at least put out a feeler. So check.
Turn: Allin to get attention away from the queens. Smaller Bets wouldve looked weird to me, since Pot=My Stack.
Let them think I had 1010 for example, and grab all right there
Appreciate any Feedback.

Its more like a general question than a specific hand history, but often the following example happens...
Its around Late Midtourney online: starting field 1200
50 out 300 left
Hero 60BB raises 2,5 in HJ 60 with AKo
Villain 1 calls 2,5 in BU
Villain 2 allin 10 BB from the Big Blind
Hero reraise to 30BB
Villains 1 Allin 70BB
Heros loses to AA
I know, we shouldnt be results orientated too much, but in this scenario I felt really good and the field was soft so it was a bummer.
I wanted to isolate the BB with the 30 BB raise (which also pot committed me) and I knew beforehand that I would ve have to call a V1 over -shove.
Should i just called the all-in 10 BB raise ?
I had no Information on Villain 1.
What it comes basically comes down to is: I have a really good starting hand but do i want to risk my tourney life on this "unclear" situation or should i wait for another day?
I clearly play to go first, but sometimes I encounter these situations and then....well..."Do I want to take a 60/40 Situation for my tourney life now?
Thx for any feedback
I hope this makes any sense. Sorry for my bad grammar. greets from Germany.
