This bonus is keeeeeling me.
I sat at a table full of 60/1 donks and even one who was 86/0, and ended up down 1.5 buyins. GRRRRRR ! Two of these people were running like demi gods.
If I'd hit any hand at all, I'd be dangerous. 0 for 6 with AK, 0 for 4 with AQ. I had no PP's over TT, and hit no sets. Had 3 flush draws that missed and 2 OESDraws that missed.
Here's my typical hand:
Dealt AK, raise to 3 or 4x the BB.
Get 4 callers.
Cbet when I miss, all 4 people call and 2 people from another table then join in and call, so now I got 6 people calling me.
Make some really oversized ill advised bluff on the turn and more people join in calling, so now I got 17 people calling me down.
The river ends up being the 4 of tulips, I bet out representing a tulip flush and get 3, 4 , 5 bet and end up folding.
Of course all other 17 people in the hand all call and some guy who had nothing until the river flips over a Get Out of Jail Free card and wins the pot by default. He wins a pot bigger than the GNP of most third world countries and promptly sits out so as to taunt us all with his large stack.
