Blogger Tournaments

Decided to have some fun, and played in four blogger tournaments in the last 2 days.
Finished 18th in the Bodonkey and 18th in the Skillz Game on Tuesday, playing good but not getting any cards. I finished 18th (AGAIN!) in the Mookie, making some calls when I knew I was beat, but then getting AA to bring me back from the brink over and over again. I finally get knocked out whem I push my AJ into AK and cant improve. Played the Dookie also, and thankfully didnt finish 18th, since there were only 18 people playing. Actually played Pot Limit Hold'em well, and got cards at the right time to eventually finish 3rd, for a nice little $18 payout.

Full Out Total Tilt

Things can not run much worse for me. I am pressing too hard to try and make things happen, at first I was just getting sucked out on a few times, but it got to the point where I was playing too many hands, and then turned around and played no hands. This weekend probably the worst. After having a lot of fun only rebuying once in the Kat's donkament, I have a over 60% of the chips on the table when we are three handed. So what happens.....I finish 3rd. After that I managed to play and lose $80 in a live tournament in 40 minutes, and $40 in a 1/2 cash game in less then 3 minutes, follwed up by losing everything I played online on Sunday to the tune of almost $70. Had I not won a two tokens on Saturday, it would have been a total loss.
I will only be playing the Bodonkey and the Skill Game on Tuesday (as long as it isnt Razz). The mega-tilt I am is begging for me to take a break, or I will have NOTHING left online in my bankroll.
