I really cannot understand the terrible standard of play at the lower levels of online poker, upto and including $10 sit and go's the amount times i have played in games and have came across the same players numerous times going allin 20 out of the first 30 hands and when they are called they have 10 2 and get lucky v's aces, unbelievable and when question on why they are doing it they go it's only $1-2 dollars etc, but when you check there records etc or you have seen them in a few games in a few hours they have spent well over $50 playing these stakes without a cash. Or the same for the $1 and $2 rebuy MTT's you get a min cash for say $6 and i have seen players allin every hand nearly for the hour of rebuy at a cost of like $100-150 sometimes and i think they must be stupid they would have to win the tournament to even make a profit seems crazy to me. If i enter a rebuy i have no intentions of rebuying and will only ever addon if i am below average or it the addon is like 10 x original starting stack.
So these players cliam they play like complete idiots because it is only a few dollars etc when you sharkscope them they have loses $10 K plus. why not play $20 plus games and play properly or even better play the lower games properly and they might even have a profit.
Really annoying me getting called with no hand and getting sucked out on by luck boxes i know it is the name of the game at the lower levels but grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hello my old china.
I know exactly what you mean to the point now if I am playing a freeroll on FTP for the main event, I nearly ignore my first 4 nhands in the tourney for them to get it out of their system, (unless of course I have a premium hand), then as you say I still get beat sometimes. As regard rebuy tourneys I find it amazing that anyone would buy in for more than the prize level of the bottom award. Crazy that they can make any money, but I will say that these idiots do build up the prize fund.

I guess a lot goes on in peoples minds that you"ll never understand, not in pokerplay/strategy, and certainly not in life. All one can do is exept it and try to do the best you can and hope it will eventually work out for you. Try to make use of idiots like this and if you fail, don't waste energy on trying to understand, just suck it up and move on Gl and bust those idiots
