Been there and done that as well. You still have them in the few bucks areas.
Now I tried playing the "rock", LOL did me no good. Well made it to the break hardly playing zilch hands cause I didn't get a single hand to be with. Then Chip leader on my table who bets on everything gets Ace,King off suit and bets 5X the BB to my Ace,Queen suited. 2 hearts come on the flop which is actually a good thing so a 35% to get the Nuts to the river. Nope got nothing but an ace on the river which did me no good. Still rude person though cause I did say NH without recieving a TY. Typed YW and went on my merry way. Still wondering though what is so great about the all-in? I saw it occomplish a lot of blind stealing and that was about it. So whope-de-do-da-dang you got the 30 chips. Wish I was that brilliant to get 30 chips by betting all-in.Then you even get someone with suited rags or Jack,Ten suited who call or even actually bet the all-in to begin with. I even asked someone who bet with suited rags that one, why he did that? Answer: It is just a game and I took a chance. Ok so if it is just a game then why are we keeping score? Take a chance on a lottery ticket, such as the powerball the payoff is much higher.
I am sorry I particularly don't like to lose, maybe you do, but I am not playing to lose. If you think I am bad with dealing with stupid people, ride with me in my car. At a green light, car in front of me who takes off slow or waits for thier shade of green. I will say gas pedal is on the right, yes that is why they call it an acceleration pedal. When you actually push on it with some pressure you will go more than 2mph through that light.
Now the last note: Just 2 things to at least take with you 2 the tables. The fit or fold notion and the if it isn't a set then don't bet.
Now for some more helpfull hints, playing the "rock" wasn't the best way.

However a hoorah for me was, I played a recent freeroll but it was limit 7 card stud. Did what I thought was well for me, place 46th out of 1000. Best hand I had was the 2 hidden pocket 2's I had and 1st card showing for me was another 2. Very nice to start with 3 of a kind and end up getting a full house. Won about 16k with that hand. Worse lose was hand Ace,King.Queen,10.. Had the Ace,King in the hole. For the life of me I just couldn't get the Jack for the life of me. Got the 9, the 8, every other card but ended up folding at the very last card. Yes there was not another Jack showing on the table.
