Does anyone own a Long/Short Fund like GGHEX - GMO Alpha Only Fund III

I was reading this article below and found this "gem" but the fund has a $10,000,000 minimum. (Whoops) TCMREALTIME_10456023&IMG=N

Does anyone know if there is a Fidelity loophole for this fund. (I've heard that Fidelity allows people to buy some funds with very large minimums in IRA accounts)

Or, is there anything like this without a RIDICULOUS minimum?

"GMO Alpha Only Fund III is the only open-end equity or stock-bond hybrid mutual fund to survive the past 10 calendar years without a single negative annual return"

Disclosure: I do not hold GGHEX (Although if someone is feeling generous..-)

"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

There are a number of other long/short funds available. DLSAX has been very good over the last year, as has NARFX.
No affiliation with either; they are no load funds available thru Schwab, and maybe others.
