Having trouble late with AA
Ok, some of you probably saw the thread where I went out 22nd of 4730 in a tourney for a WSOP
seat. I was in 2nd place got dealt AA, the blinds were big and I was in late position and some people limped in already so there was maybe 80K in the pot. (I had a little over 300K) I wanted to take the pot right there so I raised about half my stack. I got one caller. Flop comes low card,10,low card, rainbow. I figure all Im afraid of is 10,10 and he probably doesnt have it. I go all in. He calls with K,10o. Turn is a blank and I get rivered by a 10, crippled me and I went out shortly after.
Ok, now for today. I entered my 1st $10 rebuy today. 127 people enter and its pandamonium for the 1st hour. Every time I get a good hand I can count on my buddy right after me to make a big raise So, I end up making it through the 1st hour and dont rebuy or add on, because that was the plan I made before I entered. So anyways, Its down to 17 people left, (pays to 20th) and im in 10th place. I get dealt the oh so famous AA. Again, I dont want to mess around because 1st is $900 and I dont want any callers. (I dont trust this hand) I raise half my stack, get 1 caller. Flop came Q,J,8 rainbow. I didnt like the flop, but this guy was playing pretty loose. I went all in, and he showed his 88. No help for me.I am out winning $30 and some change.
So my question is this. I know AA is not invincible, and it doesnt win every time. I am curious if you guys think I am overplaying it, or if I keep playing like I am it will eventually pay off. Keep in mind the blinds are big and there is a lot of A3o and K9s making big bets and calls late in these tourneys.
