I am UTG, about half an hour into a tournament. I haven't played a single hand. I have KK, and a bunch of crazy donks at the table, so I make a big raise (4x BB). I get two callers and the blinds fold.
Flop comes 5 2 8, rainbow. OK, no one has hit that unless they have trips (or A8 or something). I check, one guy bets, the other calls..I don't see any draws that worry me, so I call. Turn is a J. Still good. I bet, the person behind me goes all in, and the other guy goes all in too (!!!). I might have called one all in, but I'm not calling two, cause I'm guessing someone has hit trips (though AJ is obviously a possibility).
I fold. They turn over 28o and 58o respectively. WTF? They both called a big raise from a super tight UTG with 28o and 58o.....
The variance is crazy but if your bankroll is big enough to handle the variance (say enough to enroll in 50 tournaments), you can make a decent return. You just can't get pissed.
