This happens to me too. Get a great start in the beggining but I dont go card dead - more like brain dead - and start playing like a mouse! I honestly think that its a mental thing and not so much a card thing...
Perhaps a few bad experiences have made you "freeze" due to being donked out of your stack and you fear it happening again. My cards also all start looking bad at a certain point in a tourney and I often go from being hero to zero at the table.
If that is the case then it is a tough one! I have yet to find a way around this one....
