Should I not have bet that flop because it was cordinated and had straight possibilities.  And once he reraised me all in, should I not have called.  I really need to know from the wiser heads in here because for the last week, I just have lost it.  Only three, in this entrie week did I get knocked out when I went into the blop behind. QQs versus KKs.  10 10 versus KK and J J versus AA.  Every other tournament for this entire week, I went in ahead only to get caught on the river. In all thta time, the worst hand that I was in with was the 10s.  Everythign else were QQs, twice toady with JJ and now this hand with the ACES.
What kind of hands should I now deem playable if the bigs pairs cant take the heat?
