The futility continues

I placed 60th out of about 114. The hand I went out, it was folded around to me in the small blind and I raised with ATo. The big blind re-raised and I went all-in. Yes, it was a bluff, but I had been showing nothing but quality for the entire morning. The two of us started the hand with virtually identical stacks. He called with AJo, which has to be about the dumbest thing I've seen anyone do at Bay 101 all year long. Seriously. If you're in his seat, do you really, really think your AJo is good enough to risk your entire tournament life on?

So I came home and have been playing online some more and being repeatedly screwed. Shit like this:

PokerStars Game #_: Tournament #_, $12+$1 Hold'em No Limit - Level I (10/20) - 2007/08/29 - 17:25:44 (ET)
Table '59681430 1' 6-max Seat #1 is the button
Seat 1: villain (1500 in chips)
Seat 2: (1500 in chips)
Seat 3: (1500 in chips)
Seat 4: (1500 in chips)
Seat 5: hero (1500 in chips)
Seat 6: (1500 in chips)
Seat 2: posts small blind 10
Seat 3: posts big blind 20
*** HOLE CARDS ***

Seat 4: calls 20
hero: raises 60 to 80
Seat 6: folds

Seat 2: folds
Seat 3: folds
Seat 4: calls 60
*** FLOP *** [Ts Kc Kh]
Seat 4: checks

*** TURN *** [Ts Kc Kh] [2d]
Seat 4 has timed out
Seat 4: folds
Seat 4 is sitting out

Got him right where I want him.

*** RIVER *** [Ts Kc Kh 2d] [6s]
hero: bets 200
villain: raises 200 to 400
hero: raises 920 to 1320 and is all-in
villain: calls 920 and is all-in
*** SHOW DOWN ***
hero: shows [Kd Ac] (three of a kind, Kings)
villain: shows [6d 6c] (a full house, Sixes full of Kings)

Fucked again.

Seat 1 collected 3110 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 3110 | Rake 0
Board [Ts Kc Kh 2d 6s]
Seat 1: villain (button) showed [6d 6c] and won (3110) with a full house, Sixes full of Kings
Seat 2: (small blind) folded before Flop
Seat 3: (big blind) folded before Flop
Seat 4: folded on the Turn
Seat 5: hero showed [Kd Ac] and lost with three of a kind, Kings
Seat 6: folded before Flop (didn't bet)

I just don't know what I have to do to win anymore. It's really, really, depressing.
