16k and 11k and chuffing AK

Was 1st and 2nd in 16k and 11k with 30 left.

Came 4th in 16k and absolutely gutted between bad luck and bad play - worst I should have got was 2nd and an extra 2000$ minimum and it was my fault.


With 4 left I took on the small stack 8 times and lost all 8 cant believe it that he wasnt gone - 10 8 v 10 7 last time and he rivers a 7.

However still me 120 k 2nd 100k 3rd 35k 4th 25k when I make bad play.

Big stack makes big raise from SB and I am on BB he raises to 35k and i push 120k all in with AK suited which in hindsight I wish i flat called - he calls with QQ and I miss and I am back to 4th. Of course I go out 1st hand with 4 left unlike guy who sucked out 10 times.

However prizes are 4.5k 3,2k 2k and 1.2k$ and totally my fault for costing myself 2k$ minimal - really annoyed.

I then cock up the 11k also and bomb out 12th when 6th of 12 left when I push and get called for 7 bb's by 22 ???? - he hits 2 and im gone.

Bit over 1k$ up but totally annoyed with myself :(

Don't be too hard on yourself, he's likely to raise with a lot worse than that there. Nothing wrong with your play at all imo, win that coin flip (which is the worst position you're likely to be in - you could easily have a dominating hand) and you're 95% certain to win, you gotta take a chance sometimes.
