Default Folding aces (low content)

Mostly, I'm posting to say, BOOYAH! I just won a seat in the party poker million.

The thing you might find interesting though, is that I found myself in a spot where I was fully prepared to fold aces. Here's the situation:

three tables left, and we're one off the bubble. If anybody gets elliminated, the other 26 of us all get finals packages. I have 40K. Blinds of 15K/7.5K. On my table, the action is basically raise, steal the blinds, next hand. My odds of stealing are very high.

On another table, there is a huge stack of over 400K. He is open-raising all-in every hand. Every hand. There are a couple players at this table with smaller stacks than me.

On the final table, there are two players without enough to make it through the blinds.

I size up the situation and decide, I will fold aces here. Sadly, they aren't dealt to me, as it would have been fun to muck them. Was I right in my decision?

As long as you are in your current position relative to the blinds, and are not any shorter, I agree with this.
