A Big Leak

I've recognized a big leak in my poker game lately. I eliminated my occasional problem of playing crap hands like QT after a long boring stretch of bad starting hands. Now the problem is when I go slamming in with AK after a long drought and the flop is 479 rainbow. I bet at the one dude in the pot and he raises me and I call him, refusing to believe he could possibly beat my gorgeous hand (which is now not that sweet). Even worse, I call on the turn and the river despite having A high.

Gotta remember that flopping 17% isn't enough if you're seeing 80% of your flopped hands down to the river. Yuck.
