I think I'd take this less seriously than play money.

Dude, I'd been drinking. :(

No way was I playing .50-1 (my usual, though I play more tourneys then cash games) after even one drink - my game goes to hell even after a couple of beers. Unfortunately some of my friends who are still at Uni are back in town for the holidays and I've been drinking a lot recently. The great thing about micro limits is they're beatable even when you're drunk. ^^

Edit: Here's a nice example of the stupid things I do when I've had a few. Stars $5.50 tourney...

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t200 (9 handed) converter

Button (t8336)
SB (t4714)
BB (t4358)
UTG (t4045)
UTG+1 (t5530)
MP1 (t710)
MP2 (t5683)
MP3 (t6345)
Hero (t10043)

Preflop: Hero is CO with Th, Ah.
4 folds, MP3 calls t200, Hero raises to t800, 2 folds, BB raises to t4358, MP3 folds, Hero calls t3558.

Flop: (t9016) 5c, 7h, 6d (2 players)

Turn: (t9016) Js (2 players)

River: (t9016) 9s (2 players)

Final Pot: t9016

Results below:
BB has Qh Ad (high card, ace).
Hero has Th Ah (high card, ace).
Outcome: BB wins t9016.

Edit II: Results for those who care. First hand I call, he shows KTo, board doesn't help him and I win. Second hand I folded and immediately felt stupid for doing so.
