It was a 70-30 situation pre-flop. It happens. Do not sweat over it for long otherwise it is going to influence the way you play too much. It's not worth be angry over something like this, since it happens many times especially if you play frequently.

You already know how to deal with this situations : first thing is pulling the steam off and you just did it postring it here. Second step wirte a note on that player and chase him at the tables : if he uses to play that way he is likely to thorw his/her chips your way.
PS: I wonder if you are still able to hold a couple of cards in your hands and reading them properly

I did that too, when I played on PS... But hey, this guy won tournament, so I doubt, that he's playing always like this. If yes, he can't reach this level of tournament. But I agree, that I will note this player, too.

Quite a long time But that is the game It looks like you had a bad experience in the past playing at poker stars. If that is the case, dont stick there, just play in another room, where your psychology will be different also.

That's like possibly the worst example of a bad beat i've seen. Really nothing crazy about it. you could have easily been up against AK KK QQ JJ AJs AQs and all would have beaten your pocket TT.
Sucks for you but really not a special hand.
Good luck risking all your chips with more than 40 BB with a pair like that early on. Need to play smarter than that. I've been folding AK QQ JJ recently in certain situation and it's really making things better. Need to learn when to take your shots better mate.

It was heads-up. Better question why would anybody push with A2o in a situation like this?
I think only real expert will give us good answer and we believe it If you ask me why I play like that, my answer is I have good feeling that my card is winning hand. So many player shove with Ax at heads up, especially at spin n go.
