Envision a poker table with 6 players. First hand you get AA and you put in a raise. A re-raise is made and your All-inn is called by two players showing QQ an 1010. They hold up and you are the man. Second hand you get KK, put in a raise and have to answer an All-in. Behind you another one calls the All-in. Again you hand holds up and in two hands you've eliminated 4 players. You're holding a 5:1 chip lead over the remaining player.
Envision the above situation and try to come up with a way to play well yet finish 2nd within the next 8 hands. It is a funny game.
