The Sign on my Back

So I was trying to relax by registering for a few 45 player NLHE MTTs.

Here are my first three results:
  1. Don't play many hands except blinds. Lots of loose players. Get AA in early position. Raise to 5x blinds (which are still low). Get re-raised. Two callers. I go all in (ridiculous over bet). Re-raiser calls. Has me out-chipped. Chip leader calls. Has re-raiser covered. Flop is A-K-10 (yayy trips!). Re-raiser goes all in. Chip leader calls. Re-raiser turns over Q8. Chip leader turns over J5. No one suited. Turn? Blank. River? Q. Chip leader takes the pot. Out in 25th.
  2. Don't play many hands except blinds. Lots of loose players. (see a pattern?) Get JJ. Raise. 3 callers. Flop comes AJ9, two diamonds. Runner-runner flush to the guy with no other draw (and not even nut flush - K2). Out in 20 something-th.
  3. No good cards. Loose aggressive guy raises a ridiculous amount. I know he's full of s**t. I have A3 hearts. I hate A-rag. But I know he's full of s**t. And I just had two sets busted. On stupid draws. I call. Sure enough, I'm ahead against his J-7 off. Until the 7 hits. No other cards for me. Out in 16th.

Don't think I played bad. Just ran bad. Or maybe I missed the sign taped to my back that says "Kick me."

Maybe its telling me I need a new hobby tonight.

Respectfully submitted,

The Wife

I'd tell you to play Razz, but you don't have any junk to kick.

Somehow got a link from Waffles. But good to know I'm not the only one with "bad" variance.
