Confessions of a PSO player

This is my first post so it may be a little discombobulated.  I will get better at coherently constructing my ramblings.  This blog is not an effort to make me a better poker player but a way to vent about my major losses this month.  I would like to ask who, who constructs the hands in PSO.  Does every new player just come into this league and think.  Hey I have a 3 and a 6  let me go all in with 10/20 bb.  I dont understand.  I have had to quit playing JJ QQ and almost every other pair that comes out in the first 2 hrs.  Everytime I get anything that plausibly will come out.  Somebody goes all in with a 3, 5, or 7 and ultimately gets a strait, flush or a full house.  I have been very consistent this month and have stayed near the top of the leader board this week.  But I have had two, count them two, major crack outs early in the last two days.  Yesterday I got caught  by a straight went out 900 something.  Lost 20 points.  I manage to get them back, fighting tooth and nail against the throng of people calling all in with anything.  Just to lose another 20 plus points for my debacle loss in the 2:00 p.m. game today.  I have pocket JJ  I raise.  Two callers.  Flop comes out 6 J 8.  I raise to 220.  The pot is 220.  I get a raise to 440.  so I call  all in.  I know im dumb and imbecelic to call so close to the beginning but I dont thing anyone with a 6 and a 4 will call me.  Guess what?  Im wrong.  Guy in front of me calls as does the original raiser.  Original raiser has AJ  I have him beat.  Guess what the other guy has?  Wait for it....  6 4.  9 comes on the river and the guy catches his straight.  As a result of this hand I will add JJ to my hands I will never play again.  QQ was already there since I lost 40 points in one day last month because of this atrocious hand combination.  In conclusion for the day.  I reiterate.  AGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!  Please world if you take anything away from this blog.  Dont call anything for the first while because the poker gods love the people who call with nothing.  Not the players who play the hands they should, raise in the correct place, and get busted by a open end draw.  Good Luck Everybody and lets hope that the world rights itself later today.  Il either catch back up to 3rd or Il go further down the rabbit hole.  Crashing into the every turbulent world of the crazy, neurotic bunch known as psychotic poker players.  Those that call all in on the hope that they will catch a 9 on the river.
