On the Bubble 26$ Frenzy
I'm sure most of you are familiar with the 26$ Token Frenzys on Full Tilt. I am playing one right now and just did something I've never done before in my life...With the top 36 receiving a token and 37 players left, I folded AA in middle position. With blinds of 500, 1000 and a 125 ante from each player, along with two players sitting with around 600, I thought it was foolish to put the chips in or raise, and have KK get there or even a worse hand. Once in a live tournament, the lady sitting next to me claimed, "I'll fold aces, kings queens, I don't care..if we're that close to the money I'll do it." I didn't agree here, because in a tournament I play to win. Position moves and bluffs are part of the game and part of what it takes to win a tournament. On the other hand, my goal here was to crack the top 36 and get a token to play in one of the guarantees tonight. It didn't matter if I finished 1st or 36th. Anyway, this is probably a useless post--just thought it was a stupid move at first. After the fact, I reached my goal and if mucking the best starting hand in NLHE got me there, I guess it worked.
