This was the first hand in a Sunday Million satellite 10 FPP. When I got re-raised, I figured cut to the chase, there was no way I was folding those cowboys.

It's really amazing what some peeps consider an "all in" hand.

Yep, it's a 10FPP game, they can wake up with aces of course but they don't need nearly that much to stack off hand 1. I think you played it great.

I really like the way you played it too. Since it's early, you made a bit more than a 3BB raise, which is a good idea. When it comes back around to you, there are way too many chips in the pot not to push then. Having that many callers, espeically when 2 of the aces are taken (less outs for someone to beat you), is a great thing.... becuase now you're set up for a DEEP run in the tourney. Very well played
