    You might find this post helpful...esp. The Langolier's post about 3 or 4 down.

    Good luck!

      Often in late position, one tends to be a little less tight than in early position, your AK was likely a good call.
      To have that late position caller wake up with QQ was unfortunate, and that your AK didn't improve also unfortunate because it put you out. But I think you made the right move, considering your stack size relative to the field.
      Likely too, they would expect you to have any two cards.

      good luck in the future - may that AK hold up for you!

        Absolutely the Right Move

        With the stack sizes of your opponents, you absolutely made the right move. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is letting a bad result alter how you think. You should concentrate on whether or not you made the right decision. I know this is tough, but bad beats and cold decks will happen. The only thing you control in poker is your decision-making process, make that as bullet-proof as possible and the wins WILL follow eventually.

        Hope that helps.

        Good luck!!
