I chose to go for 3X in this spot as they guy in the BB defends ridiculously wide if it doesn't cost him much, My thinking was that at this stage in the tournament that he would be playing somewhat tighter as he never gets this far and thus opted for a slightly bigger sizing to try get a fold from him but obviously not folding 9s there. But yeah I can see why I should be using smaller sizing at this stage in general considering my stack size and blinds.
Appreciate the advice guys :)

I cashed in 5th with no rebuy, as got doubled up early on.
Final hand was a raise to 3X from me on the button (18BB) with KQs, called by Chip leader in SB (100+BB) and also called by BB (20ish)
Flop Of K39 , check check and I shove for my remaining 15BB to get value from worse Kx and also any flush draw as 2 hearts on board. SB fold and BB calls with 99 :(
Any critique or advise on how I played that final hand would be welcome???

Have Inquired and supposedly I cannot take my rebut at the start, need to be at a certain chip[ count before you can rebuy. I did like the idea tho as I would definitely consider myself to have an edge in this particular game.

First here so be gentle, been playing poker for almost a year now.I have a small buy in live tournament this weekend with a decent guarantee in my usual card room, which i can usually either win or make a cash in.Will be playing against usual people I play with and i'm sure a few new faces with guarantee also. My question is what would the best strategy be to use in regards the tournaments starting stack and structure.
We usually play a freeze out but this will be an unlimited rebuy tournament.
Starting Stack is 10k with Blinds starting 100/200 and 30 Minute levels
Any advise with regards how I should approach and adjust to the different format?
