Default KK sucks (whine)

SNG nearing final table, I have an average chip stack. I have KK in the small blind, and I raise 3x BB. BB has the same stack as me and he pushes. I call, and he shows AQ. Ace on flop. So long.

And then this one:

It's worse when you AA gets cracked by 2 pair or a lower set. Went AI tonight with AA and get called w/99 and he make his set......

That's poker.... Sometimes depressing and very frustrating....

I guess what burned me the most is that I put the guy on a flush draw. I wanted to make it as expensive as possible and voila, he hits still.

Ehhh.

You are right about that draw.

I also have problems getting people to lay down draws,
especially in cash-games (which is a bit of a paradox...?) Sometimes I overbet the pot insanely (like theonlythree did here) with an overpair to a drawing board and people will still call against all odds. I guess that is good, theoretically, but dang it they always hit.
