Sometimes the right play is folding the best hand.
Still keep chipping away you will win one at some point.
Unfortunately, I've gotta say what he said. It's bad that you didn't win the all-in, but I also think it was a bad idea to be calling an all-in that early in the game if you intended to get far, in my opinion. There's been times I've folded AA or KK preflop when someone has pushed me all-in in the early stages of a Sit&Go or tourney. Pre-flop all-ins are not free money if you have the best hand. Even though you had him beat, you yourself didn't have a very good chance of pulling it out. You gotta remember, their still is an aspect of LUCK in poker.
I feel bad for you though man. I hope you end up doing well in another or something. It sounds like you're either a good poker player or a rich person if you're entering $160 buy-in tournies. Hopefully the good poker player. Zero in on what doesn't work for you and change it.
Good luck in any others you buy in to.
