Bit of a key hand, on the bubble of a 27 man sng. Trying to work out what I should have done instead?

Raise pre flop doesn't look like a good option to me, oop with a weak ace.

Check the flop? I prefered to take the aggressive position, and bet out, if he folds, great, if not, I have plenty of outs.

Turn isn't so great, I'm thinking I should have check folded here?

As played, I bet and he min raised, its a big % of my stack, but still needs to be called imo, anyone folding to the min raise?

Missed the river, I have an ace high busted flush draw. Bluffing the river doesn't look like a great option, was surprised to see him check behind, but not surprised to see the King in the end.

I bust out 2 hands later, as bubble boy, 77 v's 99. But I think the other hand was the actual cause of me going out. Any ideas?

I check Jam the flop, opponent folds every preflop hand apart from a decent K and AA. You may get him of a shit K as its near bubble aswell.

In this instance
You obviously get called as he had KJ - but most of the time you take it down there.
I dont regard bubble play as anything to worry about..i play to win every tourny.. saying that, I have bubbled a few times due to this playing style...But i have also coasted FTs wth big stacks.

I doubt I'd ever donkbet the flop here (what range is villain likely to assume if facing a donkbet in this spot? Most often it's a FD or some med pp).
I prob just check/call flop.

You should always consider hands like KJ / KQ in a limpers range

Stacks are really good to bet/three bet all in on the flop here so I don't mind the donk bet. Would have gone a bit smaller though. Can't blame the turn bet because I hate check folding, so I might bet small on the turn with kind of an intention to buy a cheap river, as played you have to call the min raise then give up the river. Don't think it is too bad.

I would consider shoving pre if my opponent is very passive unless he just randomly calls it off. Probably wouldn't but I would consider it. I think raising to 900 is bad because I don't think he is ever folding and you are oop in a bloated pot. Checking seems prudent.

They're too deep for a check/jam on the flop dude, I like a flop c/r then bet turn again and give up river if you don't hit. He probably wouldn't fire a lower flush drawer on river.
