Last Friday my friend told me that Aced was running a $100 rebuy tournament with a $30,000 overlay (and its only a $50k guaranteed!!!). Being the huge fish that I am, I decided to give it a go yesterday and sure enough there was still a massive overlay. Only 220 players were playing, and of those only 30 actually rebought! There were no add-ons or anything so it only cost me $100 to play.
My eyes were on the $13,500 first place prize, but after suffering a sick beat late in the game my stack size dropped quite significantly. I made it through the bubble and continued grinding away. The competition was overall awful, but the blinds were getting high and I needed to make a move soon. Finally, I looked down at AK in early position with the shortest stack on the big blind. With less than 10 BBs I shoved it in and it was folded all the way around except for the big blind. At first I thought, well, it is probably a coin flip, but he turned over KK and I knew I was dominated.
I ended up busting 1 away from the final table in 11th place, which was soooo sick as every position after that increased significantly in their payouts. Still, I can’t complain at making $400 in profit for a few hours work.
The overlay is getting smaller and smaller every week, so if you don’t have an account at Aced I suggest you getting one today! You even get 30% rakeback and a sick bonus up to $1k which is relatively easy to clear. Check our Aced Poker Review for all the details. See you there next week!
