This hand got me knocked out at 130th place (about 3600 entries, so I'm not complaining about the position).

I tend to write those hands off as 'bad luck', and don't look back. Is that ok, or should I have folded when he put me all-in? I mean... I should win against AK about 70% of the time, shouldn't I?






Edit: forgot a couple of t's

question 1) absolutely
2) eeeyup!
99% of the time i'm not gonna cut KK loose preflop to any kind of raise. ( nor should anyone IMO) you got it in 70% favorite (and way more often than not, a bigger favorite than that)

fire up the next one ..
