Something's wrong with this picture. Are we all getting ripped off by the MTT administrators?
Humans have the tendency to think that we are better than we really are. Furthermore, we tend to attribute our wins to skills while losses are thought of as unlucky.
Then there are many players that are just down right suckers, but hope that they would catch the winning numbers or the lucky streak of cards to win the tournament.
Also there are players that play for the fun of it and really don't care reloading as long as they are having fun.
