Same thing happened to me a while back and I did the above for a few tourneys. I'd be top ten & just sit out to avoid my self destruction.
I happened upon the method accidentally though.
Playing the 2:40 $500 gtd at Blodog, I did better than I expected. Was chip leader when it was time for dinner with the gf. I autofolded, went to the Alehouse for a burger and a pitcher, and came back an hour and a half later to find myself shortstacked but alive at the final table.
That was my first cash, after going through a series of very impressive crash & burn scenarios when poised to cash. Did it a few more times until I regained my confidence in my late tourney performance.
It's like viagra for my poker abilities. (that won't get me banned, will it?)
