Default Just a Bad Beat

Ok, so the bad guy in this hand is weak. He calls down with bottom pair, and will only raise with a straight or better. I was waiting for about 60 hands to get him in this position. Now I am going to go cry while you guys look for the reason why I shouldn't have bet the river.

Finished just out of the money. I got moved to another table shortly after this hand, and was just getting something going when my pocket kings ran into AA and I got busted. The cards I were getting were way above average, and it makes me upset that I wasn't able to take this tourny down.

A couple of things I observed:

I like limit better then pot limit (nl is better then them both)

My Shorthanded game is not great (I got pocket Aces three times and couldn't make it to the money).

I was finally able to not blow off my chips after getting out drawn. I lasted almost an hour after that hand, most of the time I wouldn't have lasted more then 5 hands.

I have seen a lot of postings regarding the frustrations of bad beats, so here is a sad story:

I am an hour into an on-line tournement at UltimateBet, starting stack is 1500. I have 3568 chips and the blinds are 150/300.
Dealt pocket aces and raised to 1000, one caller.
To make a long, sad story short, I got a third ace plus a 7-2 on the flop, wound up all in on the turn. He calls and shows 7-2, draws a 7 on the river.
Bye bye.
I would have loved to here Phil Hellmuth in this situation, on television............

He said it was a "Sad Story," and I dont think he was referring to poker.
