and here i go out on, everybody in early position folds one call before the CO, and i push with A5 short stack because i needed around 2400. ( BB 1000 SB 500 A 900 = 2400) so i really wanted 24.000 but i only had 9000 chips.

I wouldn't suggest you do much different other than to learn that losing is apart of poker. Go read a wsop blog to see how the pros get it in during a real tournament. You'll see big hand vs. big hand, and late in tourneys you see A-x vs. A-x or K-x vs. Q 10. That's just the way it is. I know that doesn't make you feel better, but I've bubbled many tourneys in AC where I got it in with the best of it and went home empty handed but full of the knowledge that I played my best.

i know losing is a part of poker, i just had a major down swing any 2 outer seemed to hit ... but again that's poker i guesse. i hope that i stay out of the downswing at least for a while now, or else i won't be able to keep a stack left :)

Hi,

Always know what to expect... you'll never be surprised...

Commit to your decisions, and accept all results!

All the "what-ifs," "I could've," and the "why did I" aren't nearly important as your immediate instincts, and reads of all the avail. info.

No one can tell you what you should've done, simply by reading a thread (especially in your specific situation). If you called w/ KJo... then we've got a problem- lol.

COMMIT & ACCEPT... regardless of the result!

Good luck,
Dayne
