Think Before Acting

Just busted out of a perfectly played $3+r with one really bad play. I really feel i played perfectly up to this hand... i was focused, talking to myself, playing aggressively until this hand;

Poker Stars, $3 + $0.30 NL Hold'em Tournament, 600/1,200 Blinds, 8 Players

SB: 56,999
Hero (BB): 38,781
UTG: 40,813
UTG+1: 59,200
MP1: 21,543
MP2: 24,134
CO: 93,189
BTN: 30,072

Pre-Flop: (2,800) J J dealt to Hero (BB)
4 folds, CO raises to 2,400, BTN raises to 6,400, SB folds, Hero raises to 38,656 and is All-In, CO folds, BTN calls 23,547 and is All-In

Flop: (63,894) 4 Q 8 (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

Turn: (63,894) 5 (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

River: (63,894) 3 (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

Results: 63,894 Pot
Hero showed J J (a pair of Jacks) and LOST (-30,072 NET)
BTN showed A A (a pair of Aces) and WON 63,894 (+33,822 NET)

If i had just stopped and thought about this hand i think i couldve gotten away. Big stack min raises ( this guy's opr was 5 so i was not concerned about his raise at all) and button reraised. His Range had to be at least TT+ AK.

Sigh, once i can make great reads/plays in tough spots with big hands then i think i will get over the hump and start crushing these tournies. Until then i'll be donating.
