Was playing on a 11$ Micro Million turney on pokerstars, 1st prize was 17.000$ was 5th with 45 Players left and was winning every hand i played, as soon as i got on a new table i went straight for the biggest stack there, was doing good for 5 hours, had 1.5 mio chips and more or less 3.000$ guaranteed if all i did was wait, but i didnt, went against 1st player, went for first prize....

Had AQ diamonds and he had 66.

On flop fell KK7 with 2 diamonds, i went in full force, the bastard called first huge raise i made for around 500k chips, he got 6 on turn... i got another diamond on river and went all in, so it was full house vs A flush, sadly i lost and got only 200$ reward it took me months to get over this fail.

pretty sick situation, probably going out in the 1st hand with AA's vs 36off would feel easier... but still whichever way you look at it $200 in a great return on your $11 invested.
probably many (if not all) of us have been in a similar situation, falling just short of the big payday, but you just have to live with that and move forward... surely one day you will scoop one

It murdered me inside, was like 245$ and next day i went on rampage and made full tilt. But i know that next time ill just wait for 2000+$ and then go risk, blinds were way behind, was rly stupid move from me, the guy i played against had 4.5 mio chips, but once u win 20 hands in row and have a flush build up u just dont think straight anymore, feels like u will win this hand too 100% and lose it all Smile

on a side note almost made royal flush thou, 1 card didnt fit Smile

Why play so aggressive? You put in 30% of your stack with A high from early position ? Why not keep the pot small instead to get a chance of folding on turn. I mean it looks as if You made every single bet while You where behind. You've put yourself in trouble here. Your chasing a flush ( not being sure if a flush is nuts int his hand ). So it's basically a coinflip for You. Or he has KK / 77 and your already beaten.... That is not the situation in which You want to inflate the pot and risk your tournament on.

didnt expect him to call, was my turn, he was more than first, 2nd had just a bit more chips than me, thought he will play it safe and fold, his position was more than perfect to get that prize without bothering with other people anymore. - without being so agressive i would have never made it so far.

Remember that i was almost certain he had AK in hand after he called my 500k it did fit with his preflop, so on river it was KK76J so i went all in.

Bad luck there. If you had a little bit more patience you would have got more money there.
There was no point for such a risk with the stack you say you had. You could play it more safe.
Next time you might be luckier Smile and i think you ill play the hand different, under the same
circumstances.

Was bad luck, but on the other hand if the 6 didn't come down you would have been in a great position to go on and finish highly. These are exactly the kind of spots where luck is the difference between busting out and going on for a great finish. Next time in a similar spot you may get the benefit of some luck.
Happens to us all, don't dwell on it!

Well it is really sad but this are the tings you will need to learn to cope with if you are to be a successful player in the poker world, variance can be harsh and it hurts so much more when you played like 8 horus or so then going down because of variance, well that is why you play multi tournaments and hope that you get a good run, but you did well going deep and this is the way to play, going aggressive and going after stacks!
