Answering your question, is not bad and not good, this is what we call, bad beats, and because maybe you have played a few tournaments that hands make in your mind, and you think that one is good and other is bad, but when you play a lot of hands and tournaments you will not much atention on that kind of things because there will be a lot of things like that, so dont stress. But yes one is a good thing and other is not, but keep playing, a long run you will see the win.

When I first started playing I thought it was being sneaky and clever to limp with big hands but after finding myself in a multi-way pots and having to fold on a horrible board,or having aces cracked by the big blind getting lucky with 83 off or something similar,I soon changed that.

Posted by marqis: Isn't DoN all about staying out of trouble, and preventing situations where you're all in, early on?
Dont forget that the ones on party poker are turbo with 4 min. blinds so if you dont increase you stack pretty early it become very difficult when the blinds are high cause the small stack will open their range and if you dont have the cards you are done.
IMO you have to take the opportunity when you have it. If its early or later but dont wait if you have it in the early stage cause it maybe wont come back.

Cheers yeah double or nothing is a great way to make money and build a bankroll as it is not that hard and the field is really soft so you could make money if you just play tight and choose good spot to be aggressive anyway, good luck with the double or nothing and hope you make money, you could play on pokerstars one as they are quicker and you could play more games per hours thus making mroe money and so on, cheer peace out!

Good thing that the second hand had different ending and evened things up. Although you were behind in both of them you managed to win one. Now imagine how the player with the aces getting cracked by your AK felt. I bet you know
