Here's the situation.I just sat down at a new table of 8 people... a few hands later and I'm the big blind and I'm sitting with 8h,7d.Pre-Flop, everyone checks.Flop 7,8,K rainbow. The small blind makes a bet equal to the big blind. I raise... he goes all in... what do I do?We both have close to the same in chips... and we're the leaders at the table. Blinds are still fairly low.I don't think he's got a pocket pair... I figure he's on a straight draw and betting way too much. Unless he too flops two pair.If I win... I have a monster stack. If I lose, I'm watching for the rest of the afternoon.I called. He had K,7. Hit another K on the Turn... I don't even remember what the river was, but he had his full house. I shook his hand... got up... and still don't know If I should have called such a big bet.Any thoughts. It was early in the tourney... I would have liked to have went further... should I wait for better cards? I'm not really good with odss and such.Thanks,DaveNorth Bay, Canada
2 pair after the flop.

You answered your own question. I would have folded, mainly because of how early it was in the game. Later on I may have called that, but I am learning to avoid the raising wars unless I am positive about my strength. Good luck.
