If you have pocket aces in the big blind and nobody calls to see them...
Do you really have pocket aces?
I played the league final event last night. I had one point from before I started working there, so the GM allowed me to play. I started with one of the two shortest stacks and did fine for an hour, doubling up after I'd payed a couple rounds of blinds.
Then I got stupid. Miscalculated odds, a weak kicker and a completely uncharacteristic move from an opponent I know well sealed my fate. Home early, but I had a good time.
It did reinforce that I prefer to play than deal. I really enjoy dealing, and it's setting the foundation for a leadership role in the organization, but I'm much more comfortable as a player than a dealer.
Have a GREAT weekend!
