Another night in the"tight" experiment.

Some of you must appreciate how painful this is for me.

I chipped up nicely early on then made this questionable play in the third level.

Full Tilt Poker Game #4570383624: Riverchasers Online Poker Tour (34529216), Table 3 - 40/80 - No Limit Hold'em -
Seat 6: peacecorn (4,085) SB
Seat 7: iam23skidoo (2,180) BB

peacecorn posts the small blind of 40
iam23skidoo posts the big blind of 80

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to iam23skidoo [7d 9d]

Kermolly calls 80
peacecorn calls 40
iam23skidoo checks
*** FLOP *** [Jd 8h 5s] so I've flopped a double gutshot and an ugly outside flush draw, and a sneaky ugly one at that.

peacecorn checks
iam23skidoo checks
Kermolly checks
*** TURN *** [Jd 8h 5s] [4h]
wee free card!!!
peacecorn checks
iam23skidoo has 15 seconds left to act
iam23skidoo bets 160
Gee I have to bet, no one wants this pot.
Kermolly folds
peacecorn raises to 320
iam23skidoo calls 160
Beware the min-raise...maybe i can steal the river..
*** RIVER *** [Jd 8h 5s 4h] [Ts]
peacecorn bets 500
iam23skidoo raises to 1,780, and is all in
peacecorn calls 1,280
*** SHOW DOWN ***
iam23skidoo shows [7d 9d] a straight, Jack high
peacecorn mucks [5d 5c] three of a kind, fives
iam23skidoo wins the pot (4,440) with a straight, Jack high.

I went on to die out in 14th again, just not playing anything. Then making really bad decisions with mid pairs.

Theres a quote floating in my head regarding donkeys changing their spots, but I don't have the energy to come up with it.

I'm just not smart enough to slow play!
