I played a few more tourneys last night. Bubbled in a PokerStars 180 player $10 SNG.
In a $10 R&A on Eurolinx, I was doing pretty nicely in the mid stages (about double average) until this happened:
Holding pocket fives, I flopped a set on a nine high flop (raised pre with one caller). Villain calls my modest flop and turn bets, and then donks all-in on the river which paired the nine. I go to snap call, and.....
Misclick the fold button.
Gnargh. Argle. Faark.
The third tournament was a $5 R&A ($3k guarantee) on cake. I did pretty well and was in or around the chiplead going into the final table. Four handed I was one of two huge stacks (the player on my right was chipleader). And then this:

OMFG you've got to be kidding me. 76o on the flop, bottom pair on the flop, bottom pair plus awful FD on the turn. After that I busted out in 4th for $300. But it could have been 1st for $850. Would have been huge chipleader if my set had held up.
I probably should have raised a bit more on the turn but really...
As an aside, cash games are also going reasonably well right now. I have had some more successful tilts at 5/10, and 2/4 and 3/6 are also going pretty well.
