I must say, I'm already getting annoyed again, and after only 5 SnGs...

The first one I win. Yay me.

#2: AK runs into QQ. Oh well, it happens.
#3: All-in on the turn with AQ on a Q high board against JJ, river's a J
#4: All-in on a 6h 2h 8s flop with QQ, called by Ah Qh, river's a Kh
#5: All-in with KQ on a K high board against KT, turn's a T

plenty of suckouts to go around again

Sounds like you're starting to tilt, and from this small sequence that's a bit of a problem since it's not really a terrible sequence or anything.

#3 is annoying, and #5 seems annoying although without the actual details of the hand even that may be totally standard.
#2 you lost as a 44-56 dog in a standard preflop spot
#4 you lost as a 54-46 favorite also in a standard spot for players to stack off on the flop.
#1 you shipped so obviously nothing annoying for you there.

Zen and the Art of Poker might help, if you're feeling annoyed after these 5 games you're going to be in big trouble after a serious run bad (which will happen, it happens to everyone!)

I have the same problem. A few badbeats or semi badbeats and I'm at home to Mr Tilt. Thats why I've stopped playing single table SNGs. I'm now trying out the 90 and 180 player SNGs on the theory that although Mr Tilt still knocks on the door as much as he ever did, once he has gone it only takes a short stay by my friend Mr Rungood for me to bink a final table and make up for the bad times. You still get as many annoying runs but lose 10 STT SNGs in a row and its a long way back, loose 10 MTT SNGs and its one fourth place finish.
Just knowing this helps me stave off the Tilt.... A bit.
