    Why is this always happening?

    There is nothing wrong with your call but I would make two comments.

    It is very early in the tournament and a lot of these guys have already stacked up which would point to them having won with premium hands or being maniacs. It is probably a guaranteed prize tournament as well so you will find lots of LAGs (or should I say early LAGs) who will go all in on any two cards to build a stack.

    I happen to have a read on luckyluke629, he is from Germany and he is a maniac but only for the first four or five levels, he is actually a decent player but his main aim is to get as big a stack as possible early on and he accepts getting busted if that does not happen. His all in range is basically ATC and he is often quite lucky.

    This time he actually had a reasonable hand and it was just unfortunate that he sucked out on you. It happens in this level of MTT all the time, which is more like a freeroll. It is just poker.
