Pocket Kings; early in tournament. ($5.50 buy-in)
Any and all feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
Obviously as the tournament was still in very early days I had no or little read on my opponents. I've left out the turn and river as they are of no consequence to how I did/should have played the hand; if anyone is curious I can post the result later.

Preflop: PhilPaine is MP2 with K, K.
2 folds, MP1 raises to t70, PhilPaine raises to t300, 2 folds, Button calls t300, 2 folds, MP1 folds.
Flop: (t700) 9, T, 7 (2 players)
PhilPaine bets t1200 (All-In), Button calls t1170 (All-In).
I was, of course, fearful of a draw to a straight and thought this all-in push would force a fold if my opponent was holding an 8. I didn't think anyone would call my earlier raise with 8-J or 6-8 so I was not fearful of my opponent holding a straight after the flop cards.
I don't know if this is helpful or not but thought I should include the reasoning behind my initial decision.
