      Lovely side of variance.

      Hand #1:
      There are 21 players left in the tourney, and I could take the 8 spot if I win this hand, and I have AA...

      No doubt, this game can be sickening a lot of the time.

      Variance in MTT play is absolutely brutal. We see it day in, day out!

      You just have to go with the flow, keep the head down and that big pay day will come :)


      All the best,
      Gary

      today i got rivered 3 times in a row to KO me out of the tourney

      was the most sickening thing I have ever seen,
      KJ vs QQ- this guy calls up to 20 bb PRE(hes sandwiched and just keeps calling)
      turns a K, so not rrally a river there....
      22vs KK, all in riveres a str8
      K8 vs KQ, we both flop TP he decides hes just going to shove his whole stack I eventually call see the good news then the 8 comes on the river

      on a side not being dealt
      QQ KK KQs isnt bad is it lol
