Big Mistake (daily big) $5.50 buy in

By: revent66 @ 10:58 (EDT) / 226 / Comment ( 2 )
I had decided to play this for the first time today and I was playing steady just under the average for about 1 1/2 hours when the blinds got to $75/$150. I played ABC poker all the way up to this point when I got delt AKo.
I had about 4,300 in chips and decided to raise being UTG+5 to 900.
The opponent to my left called and everyone else folded.
The Flop A,Q,J rainbow. So having thought I have top pair with a straight draw (and a lack of concentration) I raised all in to be called by JJ
Turn K
River 5

I lost but learned a valuable lesson.
