10 seated tournament.
Blinds were 600/1200.

I'm just before midposition. UTG has called 1200, next guy folds.

I have 77.

There's still a lot to act behind me but I decide to raise to 3.2k.

Two call, one reraises to 6k.

Action back to me - pot is now swollen to over 25k.

I think I should have called for the extra 4k but don't.

Flop comes down 7h Jh As.

And I'm cursing obviously, knowing I should have called as I would have been getting over 5:1 on my money.

Even on a two outter would you have called?

The implied odds if I hit were juicy obviously due to the preflop action - and I knew I'd have to hit trips to win the hand.

I've done a lot of similar things almost instinctively and still do, and was on tilt with myself after it. My only advice to you would be (even though I can't get rid of my own impulses), is to just have a think about every action you make, no matter how simple it appears.

Yeah man, sound advice.

I'm finding that if I have any other distractions other than some chilled music, I don't pay attention, forget stupid basic stuff like checking my position before betting, pot amount, odds etc.

The trick is always have patience.

As sadamman stated and I'm still trying to make it a general practice whenever I play a hand, and that is to think about the possibilities, odds, how many are in the hand, position, etc. you get the drift. But, based on your hand, 77 and already raisingand this is me, I know I would have gambled on it. I've blown at times and hit at times, but once I commit to a hand pre-flop I usually follow through unless I'm very familiar with the opposing players and a player I know well would have a hand when or if there was a reraise. Hope it's not sounding as confusing as I think it is as I type it. But, you were still in the game with your decision so don't ever beat yourself up when you've made your decision.

Yeah.

Thing is I had 15k behind me if #i called, so it was a baddd decision upon reflection. But thats always easy to say when you trip on the flop as opposed to turn/river

You didn't close the action, so a fold is not wrong here. But if you get involved with such a middle strength hand and in early position, you should have a plan what to do, if you got reraised.
