A couple of points. FWIW the place I was at only runs once.
I don't understand why casinos have rules like this. players should be allowed to do business in cash games. tournaments are a different other thing.

I am definitely prone to tilting and that hand I was tilting.
well, maybe we should have a thread about tilt. i might actually get round to writing about it if there is rep points at stake instead of another of those gay ass exclamation marks that mechafaggot ozone keeps giving me.

In fact, it wasn't until after I pushed that I realized how good my hand was. I would have run more than once, but I'm a casual player who has come to terms with being marginally profitable and will stop playing once it isn't fun. I'd rather decrease variance even if my over all EV drops slightly.
this is a curious mindset imo. professionals need to spare a thought for their variance/ev balance, because their risk of ruin genuinely is a risk of ruin. with recreational players though...i guess you can break people into two catagories in this regard, risk oriented and reward oriented. the risk oriented will look to minimise risk, their interest is usually playing correctly, getting it right, and one might ask if a game like poker is necessarilly the game they would find most fulfilling. the reward oriented have some gamble in them and will roll with max ev, max variance tachycardia. some will win some will lose, some were born to sing the blues, but the movie never ends it goes on and on and on and on, oh!

Honestly though I'm not a whole lot better than the other players as a whole.
strangers, waiting. up and down the boulevard their shadows, searching in the ni-ee-ight.

Other stacks were bigger than me and the villain.
streetlights, people, living just to find emotion. hiding, somewhere in the niiiiiiiiight!

I think $500 was max buy in.
don't stop believin'. hold on to that fee-la-ee-aling.
