Did you not read my earlier post? You get knocked out by donkeys because of the fact that there are so many of them. If there are hundreds of donkeys, odds
are ONE of them will beat you. If there are hundreds of quality players, odds are MUCH HIGHER that ANY of them will beat you. For every donkey you replace with a quality player you are taking away your edge. Sure in a huge tourney your odds of cashing are low no matter what, but wouldn't you rather face people who will put their money in on a draw (meaning the odds favor you, unless they're calling with like an open-ended straight flush draw with 2 overs, in which case even a pro would call that) than people who can read you well enough to force you to suck out to win a tourney? I'd rather face 20 80%-20% scenarios than 20 50%-50% scenarios even if in the first scenario I'm only a little over 1% to survive the 20 80%-20% scenarios, I'm .0009% to in 20 50%-50%'s in a row. Which would you pick?
