Since I'm a big time Gold Star this month, I figured I might as well play some of the VIP tourneys. So, I played the weekly $75K donkament yesterday. Top 270 cashed, with 270 getting $75. We were down to 271 players left. Blinds were 300/600 and ante 25. I had just folded the BB, and was left with 611 and a small blind of 300 and ante of 50 coming up. So, after posting the SB and ante, I had 261 left....no bueno, but lo and behold I get dealt AA. Muy bueno!!!
Here is what happened....

Well, I know I should've folded AA there. Seriously. Several other players had less than 1000 left, and I had just gotten thru both blinds, so with 261 left, I would be able to post the ante 5 more times, and def someone would've been blinded in and busted out. I used up every second of my timer too.... But fuuuuuuck!!!!!! I finished 271 for a prize of $0.
I also played the weekly Silver star $30K free tourney. Cashed in that for a small amount.
Oh well...the month is still going really well.
