Poker Stars $1.32+$0.18 No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t200/t400 Blinds + t25 - 4 players - View hand 2325598

SB: t4915 M = 7.02
Hero (BB): t3250 M = 4.64
CO: t4415 M = 6.31
BTN: t920 M = 1.31

Pre Flop: (t700) Hero is BB with AdQs
2 folds, SB raises to t4890 all in, Hero calls t2825 all in

Flop: (t6550) 7c3c7d (2 players - 2 are all in)

Turn: (t6550) 5s(2 players - 2 are all in)

River: (t6550) 8h(2 players - 2 are all in)

Final Pot: t6550
SB shows Kh8d (two pair, Eights and Sevens)
Hero shows AdQs (a pair of Sevens)
SB wins t6550

Immediately, I realized that I should have even folded AA there with the Button being so short, but can I ever really become that disciplined?
Then this morning, this happened...

Poker Stars $1.32+$0.18 No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t100/t200 Blinds + t25 - 4 players - View hand 2325595

BTN: t6991 M = 17.48
Hero (SB): t2361 M = 5.90

Pre Flop: (t400) Hero is SB with AhKd
1 fold, BTN raises to t500, 1 fold, BB calls t300

Flop: (t1200) 9hQd8s (2 players)
BB checks, BTN bets t600, BB calls t600

Turn: (t2400) Ts (2 players)
BB checks, BTN checks

River: (t2400) 5c (2 players)
BB bets t800, BTN calls t800

Final Pot: t4000
BB shows Js Ks (a straight, Nine to King)
BTN mucks 9d Td
BB wins t4000

Not AA yet, but working my way up there... I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks...
