      I won a sat for a 26$ sat token which I used for this tournament. I have just below the average stack.

      I get dealt aces the hand before and raise 3xBB from MP1 and everybody folds... The very next hand I get aces again and this happens:

      Full Tilt Poker, NL Hold'em Tournament, 60/120 Blinds, 9 Players
      LeggoPoker.com - Hand History Converter

      MP2: 2,660
      CO: 11,235
      BTN: 1,905
      SB: 2,620
      BB: 7,340
      UTG: 5,830
      UTG+1: 2,250
      Hero (UTG+2): 4,670
      MP1: 4,730

      Pre-Flop: (180) A:diamond: A:club: dealt to Hero (UTG+2)
      2 folds, Hero raises to 360, 5 folds, BB calls 240

      Flop: (780) A:spade: Q:club: T:spade: (2 Players)
      BB checks, Hero bets 320, BB calls 320

      Turn: (1,420) 3:heart: (2 Players)
      BB checks, Hero bets 850, BB raises to 1,700, Hero raises to 3,990 and is All-In, BB calls 2,290

      River: (9,400) 6:diamond: (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

      Results: 9,400 Pot
      BB showed K:heart: J:spade: (a straight, Ace high) and WON 9,400 (+4,730 NET)
      Hero showed A:diamond: A:club: (three of a kind, Aces) and LOST (-4,670 NET)

      I was sick to my stomach... The buy in for this tourney was way to much for my BR but I had a sat token, I never play these big tourneys but I was playing very well so this stung just a little bit more.

      PS. I know the flop bet was too small.
