I've seen this comment in your hand histories before. Controlling your emotions at the poker table will help your game long-term. You made a reasonable play as short stack and lost the hand and were sent to the rail. You can only control your decisions at the table. You can't control which cards hit the board or what your opponent chooses to play. Last night I was put out of a live game by 87s against my AJo when I had about 10 bb. Play enough poker and you will get beat in every way imaginable. I believe the only beat I am lacking in my career is having a strait flush beaten by a higher one.

Poker happens. Get over it.

I agree with Joe. It seems from the chat you lost the prior hand and are tilting cause the guy said "ty". A comment which is designed to elicit an emotional response. When you tilt, he beats you again.

KJo from the cut off on these stacks a shove is probably fine. We can't give a better answer really until you include the relevant info like player reads or stats on the button and blinds.

lol, I wasn't tilting, I knew that KJ isn't that strong of a hand, and if anyone was going to call, they most likely had me beat, so when scheaaperder called I knew it was the end of the tournament. He had AQo.

There is an inaccuracy in this statement which indicates an over all negative mindset. DUCY?

What do you mean by ducy? and no its just if anybody was going to call it would be with any pair or AT+ for sure, so when he called it was just a feeling that he had me beat, I'm just trying to being realistic. If it turned out that he didn't have a hand like that well then, great, no harm done.

That's not what I mean. I doubt you'll ever get called by worse just like you do. That's not hte point. The shove is +EV because of all the times you'll win the pot uncontested (fold equity). What I mean about the negative mindset is "the tournament is over" comment. You will always still have equity to double up when called. In this case vs AQ you're only a 62-38 dog... 38% equity when called is nothing to sneeze and and roughly 4 times out of 10 here your tournament would not have been over.

AT+ 22+ is 10.7% of all possible holdings. One player of four opponents has folded so you should expect to be called 28.8% of the time [(1-(1-.107)^3)*100)] by the remaining three.

Now lets look at the EV of a shove. Against your perceived calling range KJo wins 36.9% and loses 63.1%.
All Fold = T$1033 [you gain 1450 71.2% of the time]
1 call & win = T$3111 [you gain 1450+6980= 8430 36.9% of the time)
1 call & lose = -T$4404 [you lose 6980 63.1% of the time]
EV = 1033 + 3111 - 4404 = -260

So when you shove in this situation you lose an average of T$260 so this looks like a fold unless they will call with a wider range or the blinds and antes are higher (= more dead money).
