The crazed monkeys that score big stacks in the beginning are often feeders for later. Look at them as lunch bags for the middle part of the mtt
Hope it worked better for you. Tried to re-raise a bully, got pushed all in so I backed off. Then got caught on a blind/bully raise steal with J10s, figured it was a decent hand if I was called since it's got good drawing capabilities.
Well, I got called by the bully, who I had beat by the end of the hand (he called with like 9/6 os or something like that) but I also had gotten called by pocket Queens, so I was out.
