Did i play this wrong?  0   
I was in a 6 man tourney and we were down to heads up, this player has been playing aggresive all tourney and getting rather lucky hitting generally on the turn or river.

So its my BB i get A 2 he calls, and the flop is 3 4 5
I check and so does he, there is a 3 on the turn i check he raises all in and i call to find he had 2 6 to get a higher straight, finishing my tournament 2nd

Raise preflop. Bet that flop.

Not much you could do here at the turn. You flopped to strong a hand to lay it down. Not HU and against an aggressive opponent.

He usually went all in on turn or river so i wanted that all in to come and when it did i jumped on it without thinking much Sad

No problem. It was a no brainer call.

Just a cooler. Better luck next tourney.

I think you did play it wrong but you may have lost anyway. I would have raised preflop for a start. This would give you more information and hopefully stop him calling with rubbish. checking with A2 you risk getting into trouble. but if he plays the way you say he may have called anyway and from that point on you're in trouble. I would have definitely raised the flop because there were so many danger cards. if a six came you wouldn't know what to do. If the board pairs you could be looking at a full house. You're hand is nowhere near strong enough to check the flop and the turn. His all in looks very suspicious but without much information preflop and on the flop I think you'd have to call. If you'd raised the flop to three times the pot and got called you could put your opponent on a higher straight or full house on the turn if he went all in.

You have the nuts when the chips go in. A runner runner suckout allways hurts.

Those kinds of situations are the ones that you want to steal the pot before his card shows up...
You could try to raise and hope he calls witouth his card showing up to increase the pot. If you know what I mean.

This hand is completely different. You did nothing wrong here since you raised preflop and on the flop with a strong hand. The other player played badly by calling your raise and lucked out. But this hand is completely different since this is a bad beat unlike the other hand where you were behind. The two hands shouldn't really be in the same discussion.

i think it is ok your movement. in a heads up you have to think people most of times has nothing to play at the flop

For me your form of play this hand is good. You have a monster in the flop and the probabilities of the player has got a bad hand are big; the equity of your hand with a random of hands is more of 85% and is more posible that the villain has overcards or a bad hand that this. Your movement are rentable in the long term.

So your tip is that you shouldn't be drawn out on?

Well, of course that would be the obvious solution, but for the rest of us who doesn't know what our opponent has or can controll the cards we have to make do with less.

I think you did the right thing, if he is as agressive as you say and push it all in there on the turn or river a lot, just wait it out, play it slow untill you hit a good hand which you did but got unlucky, just move onto the next one and try your best.

you played it perfect mate.

i dont think you can raise that preflop, if he is aggresive he is likely to re raise.

you cant lay that down against him, it is so likely you have him beat
