Calling all-ins pre-flop when your gut tells you your beat
I was playing a 9 man sit-n-go today i had most chips 4000 and these two lower chips players one i know played really lose and figured i had him beat which i did. But the second caller was very tight have played him many times and know he had to have either QQ KK AA to call an all-in i had AKo and I told myself he has a big pocket pair most like KK's that is what i told myself. I was right he had KK's and beat me. He was than chip leader and i was taken down to 2000 chips. Do any of you struggle with calling when you got a big hand but know before you call that your beat, but still call. I have what i like to call entitlement tilt. I play really great get to be chip leader and because of my own self entitlement think i can't be beat and than lose all that i built up sometimes just before the bubble. anyone have any advice on how to deal with this kind of problem. It is my downfall every time i play. Don't seem to find much help because everyone else deals with bad beat tilt. Phil hellmuth has this problem. anyone have any advice please share it with me. thanks

Go with your gut, its usually right.
Unless you are getting the correct odds in a certain hand, go with your reads.
Thats what seperates the good and great players. Looking down at strong hands but knowing it isn't good. The discipline is hard to master.
Obviously you can't always be right, but why go against your reads?

I'd trust your gut in those situations. All-in's pre are going to be a flip regardless of your hand, sometimes your guts right and sometimes its not. In that situation you could've 2x'd or 3x'd if you are the one raising or just flat his raise rather then jamming as well. Take the time to think about all your options, even if your hand is strong it can lose.
