LOL - their servers are sooooooo not up to the task of running a tournament this big. Took what, almost 10 minutes just to seat all the players?

yea... already out in like 25000th place. Had 2 pair on the flop with two flush cards showing and raised it up to almost all-in to get rid of donks, but who calls but a guy with 52o with the 2 being his flush card and he hit two more on the turn and river to hit the flush against my 2 pair(which were high by the way, so there was no connections or anything else for him....) oh well, didn't expect to go far in this one too like I did yesterday...

This tourney is absolutely ridiculous! Just came home half an hour into the tournament to find a table full of offline folks and some guy raising every hand to get blinds. Dude was up to 10k chips lol. So I flipped out at my table asking why everyone was folding to this guy and I played a couple key hands and beat out this guy who had me covered 10x. Obviously not a very good player....
So anyways now I sit here reaping up free blinds myself with a nearly 16k stack and one active player to my right. Everytime he folds I raise and get blinds. And making sure to keep him in check so I don't suffer the same fate as the guy who's chips I stole.
42nd out of 21,000 right now haha. Anyone else in a similar boat?
