How do you deal with a bad run?
I have successfully built a small BR, first with a freeroll, then a few smaller buy-in tourneys. The last two days, however, it seems like I am having a bad run of cards. I'm not superstitious enough to think I have a run of "bad luck", but I am finding it hard to sit through the variance. My first goal was to just be patient and wait for the cards to come, but I sat through 3 tourneys and either sat until I got blinded out, or (worse I know) try to make plays with the crappy cards I got toward the end with no stack to be able to intimidate anyone out of the pot.
How do you guys deal with runs like this? Should I remain patient and rock on through it, or take a poker break for a couple of days?
