The $8 sats are interesting, to say the least. The last time I played in this, I busted out the first hand...but it was kinda funny what was said afterwards.
UTG player raises it 4*BB to start off, player before me calls, and I'm sitting in MP with AA - nice hand to start a tournament with, eh? I think of what to do here, then pop it up 3*original raiser. UTG then re-raises me all-in, I can't get called fast enough, and what do you think UTG pushed with on the first hand? 4-6 sooooted - but after the flop comes a dastardly 3-5-7, his move gets paid off.
Funniest line afterwards was this same idiot (who busted out about 10 hands later) saying "That's what you get for overplaying Aces!" :laugh:
The $24+2 satellites are better plays, and if you ever find that you have no use for the $75, play the cash game tournaments - you might end up doing something like this:
