I got KJo in mid position. raised to 100 (blinds 10/20.) got two callers. hit two pair on flop. check reraised all in. got one caller. caller has K9o (just one pair and weak kicker.) turn is 9. river is 9 How can ranking people badly work when they play a hand perfect and get knocked out early through no fault of their own? You shouldn't penalise players for getting knocked out early when they don't make any mistakes and go out due to ultra bad beats. By all means, reward the winners and the top 20%, but also penalising early finishers does not make much sense, particularly when they outplay their opponents but take horrific bad beats
