Busted... all by myself

By: Amanda 0909 @ 11:35 (EDT) / 272 / Comment ( 3 )

How can I be in top 5 for basically the whole tourny and yet I bust myself 1st on final table??

I got AA in  the BB 3 bet the cut off open, probly a little too small, wanting to get called.  I guess that was the first of my mistakes. Flop came J 9 10 rainbow. I bet into flop and got called. At that point I thought theres no way he has KQ. Turn comes another low card, I checked the turn figuring I could get a better read. When the bet came, I thought, and told my self again theres no way he has the straight. River comes 2. I check, he bets I reraise he goes all in and I have to call because of my horendous bet sizing. Damn he does have it I tell myself, kicking myself for playing my AA so stupidly. from 2nd to last just like that. left myself with 2 BB

Why do I have to learn this lesson, more than once..why couldn't I just fold my Aces post, or turn, or river. Or, I guess even flatting the river, cuz what else am I gonna get called with??  

Does anyone else feel like at moments their play is so on and other times so off??

Def more training is necessary, at times that I can intently listen,I guess.

Any feedback is much appreciated, as I haven't done this before so dont really know what is expected.

I seriously started playin poker last Nov and have come a long, long way from there. I know I have a ways to go still, so like I said any suggestions are welcomed 

Thanks for reading,
