i play at acr as well as live poker tournaments. I always get pretty deep but at acr it seems like 90% of the time no matter what i play towards the end right before i am in the money trip jacks, pocket rockets, kings i always lose to a low straight or flush on the turn/river. To someone with hold cards that no good poker player would go all in on that late in a tourny. when the first half i can hardly lose 5/6 suited will go all the way for me early on, but late nothing seems to work most of the time. it puts me scared to play anything towards the end witch doesnt win games either. dont seem to run into this when at the casino in live tournaments. never that hot or that cold and its more random could be cold at first n hot at end, usually its just wait for good hands n they usually win if i play them right. but this doesnt seem to be the case when playing on line. ive only played at acr and ignition because im in cali and those are some of the only ones allowed. wondering if anyone else has this issue, and if its all sights or just these or if its maybe just me and im playing bad some how online at the end and dont realize. thank you for any light you can shed on this subject.

It definitely sounds like you need to work on your play for late stages of the tournament. It would help if you had some specific hands that you feel like contributed to your downfall.
