      I made the hands shorter to save space but you get the message all hands where all in somewhere along the line and all where the same outcome I lost.

      Ow and I got an ace king cracked also by duece seven can't find it in my hand history but it went like this he called my raise

      Flop: A K 7

      I raise He re-raises I go all in he calls

      Turn: 2

      River: 2

      thank you very much for calling me with crap....

      AJos all in pre flop? Ok, other player had worse, but AJos doesn't have any right to go all in either, bingo you were playing and got unlucky.

      The AA, well, that's the hand you needed to all in pre not raise 100 to let any 2 cards in, and with 2 hearts you knew there was always a chance. Kick yourself and get over it, I get much worse daily.

      Hehe I know there was a chance and it's not the one hand but just the combination off all within 5 minutes.

      And I know AJo is not a premium hand but the blind was 300 so I had 8BB with UTG only having 1 1/2 BB he had to push everything the chance that he had 2-7 there was the same as him having AK. I pushed AJo more as a call then an all in as I knew that the Tight BB would fold in 90% of the times (giving me a 1 1/2 BB risk I think thats worth pushing AJo for).

      Agressive? yes. Risky? Maybe. Stupid? Don't think so. If BB and me where the only ones left ICM would say push and the 1 bb that UTG raised to go all in was nothing really. I'll post that hand completly in the hand evaluation section but i'm pretty sure I made the correct play there :)

      And for the rest I just needed to vent today I had 2 major suck outs
      JJ versus QQ and AA and JJ versus KK and AA both hitting my set on the flop so I know deep inside luck comes and goes but I just needed to vent some frustration to get my head in the game again so I thought what place better then the downswing forum where all people come with bad beats :)

      Ow and I COMPLETLY agree on the AA that was a terribly played hand on my part but well if you have a losing streak you don't see so clearly ;)
