you can add AK to curse too, lost yesterday and today 4 out 4 times with AK suited every single time against flush, straight etc. and the only time I had AK off suit I folded preflop and the flop was 8K9 and two guys are going all in and one of them had K9 so if I called I would've lost again

playing good poker has nothing to do with variance . if you are a wizard knowing the final result try make some loto predictions but folding AK imo is a wrong move in poker.
probably you dont understand the variance ( i am not understand either , sometimes i get crazy ) and that s why your mind is focused on loosing good hands.
And one more thing regarding loosing your best hands is how do you play them and against who . Dont expect have some value from the hand by limping or min raising ....
AK is a hand poker players are playing really bad, 2 problems:
1) always shoving or calling a shove regardless of position or stack size
2) not being able to let AK go after the flop, if you don't hit on flop you are around 20% chance to win against any pair
BTW, it's still a premium hand and I always open or 3-bet with it but in MTTs I tend to be more careful and even let it go preflop if I have 2+ opponents shoving, at cash games it's easier as you can just add another buy-in if you lose...
