Egads
Default AK vs AJ

I've lost this 5 times in a row.
3 times to a straight and twice to the jack hitting.
Is it just me or is that kind of silly?

Never happens to me. I'd stop playing if I were you.

The obvious conclusion here is to only play AJ when you are at least 90% sure your opponent is playing AK. You really have to start thinking logically in order to play poker Egads.

Man, you broke my record. I lost only four times in a row having AK all in pre-flop and dominating a worse ace.

Odds of you losing five of these confrontations in a row is like 0.1%. It sucks, but all you can do is to keep making good decisions.

Heh in the long run these players going all in with AJ against your AK are gonna end up paying you, so don't get annoyed just smile and invite them back, knowing eventually you will get paid.
