need help getting over the hump
I play about four to five MTTs per day, ranging in cost from $1 to $11. Some are regular tourneys with few entrants, some with many, some are rebuys with small and big fields, some are bounty tourneys, some are 7-card stud. In 80% of them I last into the third hour. In 20% of them I cash, and in about 5% I make final table. My problem is that I can never mange to get past about 5th or 6th place on final table, so that I end up winning very little money after putting in a ton of work to get into a position where I can win. Can people suggest to me what I can do in order to improve my performance so that I can reach that elusive top 3? If I haven't provided enough information, I'm happy to answer any clarifying questions.
