3rd and 4th sitngoes

The third tourny was not very exciting and i finished middle of the pack after never really getting started,
The third tournament however seemed so much more promising i was playing well and staying around 7-15 on the chip leaderboard but unfortunatly it was ment to be for me in this tourny and i bubbled :( 13th position :( for the first time in my life found my self thinking im that guy, the guy that no one wants to be :( "bubble boy".
Im so use to getting close to the money and then bullying my way into the money but instead i was the one being bullied, there was one particular stak who just riped into me and im not use to that so it was really a big shock. My knock out hand was Aj i had it on the button and the action was folded around to me, i shoved into a big stak and tiny stak in the blinds thinking the little stak would never call me unless he has a monster and the big stak would call me with alot of hands, many of which i have dominated, neway i didnt mind risking going out on the bubble for the chance of getting a stak that could possibly make a run for the top 3.
The big stak did call but he had AQ :( no jacks came and that was it :( .
