      UTG +1 raises preflop according to SpaceGravy he needs to have AJ suited or better to make that play and he may have 99 or better also . Since you were in late position with AT off suit that is below the UTG + 1 range. Sticking to spacegravy's theory you should have folded preflop to preflop raise from early position player.

        you and your spacegravy's theory, that man is made for SNG not for MTT, he also says you should play more hands with higher blinds and ATo was a good hand in late position for that time.

        I had rougly 94% to win that ticket in that hand on the turn, and on the river luck punches me in the face once again.

            Chris please shut ur crap about pre-flop it was 95.5% vs 4.5% on the turn, this has nothing to do with pre-flop anymore, weve been over this on teamspeak.

                Tiber my intent was not to get you angry
                SpaceGravy videos have helped me to play better S+G's and MTT's
                You are only six percent away from the same win rate of ITM as SpaceGravy
                ROI is another story , ROI tends to follow ITM , first the ITM then ROI follows .
                You post bad beats which I assume you want people to comment on then you fail to learn from them.

                    With the blinds @ 150/300, your < 10BB's, shouldn't you be in push/fold mode? Calling for 22% of your stack pre-flop & relying heavily on the flop vs villain who has you more than covered is a -ev play in my opinion. ATo rarely flops well. Also if pre-flop raiser flops TP/decent kicker, there is no way they are going away even to a short stack shove! Yes, your a big fav on the turn to win the hand & it's a classic suck-out....but you did put yourself in a tough spot by calling when you should be pushing or folding in the first place! I'm with Chris on this one. Gap concept springs to mind. I suggest you read up on it. Keep plugging away Tiber, your luck's bound to turn at some point.

                        You have a gift of ignoring what others try to tell you
                        so you are right your luck will never change
                        because luck is in fact the same for everyone over time
                        its called the Law of Large Numbers

                        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_large_numbers

                        or
                        to quote Joe

                        People who become nearly obsessed with bad beats generally are the same ones who focus on the results of a hand and not their decisions and the decision making process. Once I learned that poker was a game of decisions and people played with cards and not a game of cards played by people I began to lose my concern over bad beats. In poker your objective should ALWAYS be how to influence your opponent(s) to make poor decisions. Whenever you succeed in doing such your have just made a +EV move (see Sklansky's Fundamental Theorem of Poker). Make more +EV moves than -EV ones and you are on your way to becoming a winning poker player.
