WSOP freebie tonight. I chip up early and lead the field on/off until ~18 left. I get AA in vs mid stacked 44 and of course he hits his two outer. I then raise/fold a few times in really frustratingly marginal spots, but am still in decent shape. Button then limps and I raise up AQ in SB, but BB re-raises and commits us both if I decide to shove. I look to have a clearly frustrated image and put him on a hand so fold. He shows 46o which is astonishingly brave considering the game dynamics. I raise/fold once more (to AA) and a round later see my raise called out of the BB to a flop of AQQ with AJ. I am check raised but am totally committed and he flops good with QJ.
FUCK YOU TOURNAMENTS!
