Lets say its early in a MTT, 50/100 blinds you are on the button, no one really over the 1k in starting chips.
You flop Q2h. you get folds or limps to you. You fold thinking, this is not my normal starting tight/aggressive kind of hand. The flop comes QT2, you WOULD have had 2pr. The turn is a 3 and river a 9. Possible straight but everyone is checking and the winner will have pr 9's.
How do you live with that kind of hand when using standard tight req's(AA-AQo in early etc) and you dont get them for the rest of the time? Should you loosen up to play Paintx in later positions?
I get blinded out sometimes by playing too tight but have a hard time picking the hands to be loose with, and after folding see the results in 2pr or sets.
