"Also, keep in mind everyone else is only getting 1-2 big hands/hour. "

Anybody paying attention is not going to give you action with anything less than a premium hand. So sitting your hands you probably want to be playing an average of 1 or 2 hands a round. You still get a good tight image and you are more likely to build your stack.
YES! True true. You need to play a few hands that you will fold after the flop 2/3 of the time FROM POSITION. This is how you get action, by giving it right?
Good additional comments guys! I agree totally.
Mainly I think I started out being way too likely to be involved in hands out of position because I wanted to PLAY. You have got to have some discipline, and have a plan
on what you will be willing to play at different points in the game. But you must be willing to say to yourself "I don't have to play this hand... it isn't in my plan and I can enjoy the game by watching."
