This past sunday Absolute poker held a 100k gurantee prize pool and the buy in was 500$. I woke up that mornin lookin at the lobby and saw that only 60 ppl have entered the tournament. To reach the gurantee prize pool there would need to be 200 entrants. I only have a couple grand on AP but thought that this would be a once in a life time oppurtunity to play a tourney with the huge overlay. It was a super holdem tourney with blinds increasing every 30 min and deep stacked startin chips at 5000. At the end of the first hour I was doubled up and there was only 1 person eliminated from the tourney. I dropped down to 8k in the next couple hours where the blinds were still only around 50/100. I got AA from early position raised it up 2 1/2 times the big blind and got one call from late position. the flop came 673 and both of reraised all in. He turned over pocket Jacks and rivered a jack to go on to make the money. I have never been put on tilt as that tourney did in the upcomin days. I am glad i played in teh tourney since there was a 70k overlay and my 500$ buyin was like a 1700$ buyin. I had to play in that tourney right. poker is a brutal game bad beats come from every which way.

re: Poker & Biggest overlay I have ever seen
Badbeats are a part of poker, I often was a victim of the badbeats (I agree, bad beats come from every which way), being in the bubble often I was eliminated of tournaments with AA in my hand; AA sometimes mean victory and sometimes it means death or losing our valuable stack, AA is obligatory to play and to play strongly,
Often I have lost AA; because of a badbeat; but always will play AA strongly.

I've been beat badly with AA so many times I will just limp in with them. And if someone raises, I only call, unless I make a set and the board looks good. I really don't mind folding them anymore. It seems like I make more off 22 than AA.
