Default Padowan Patience or Staying Awake on the final table

I'm trying to hone my skills in low level tourneys ($1 - $5) and just recently have been finishing top 20 regularly from a field of usually around 700 - 1000 players.

As with any tourney, i've had my share of luck to make sure i'm getting to the 'better' amount of money.

My problem is coming when i've been at the table 3 and a half hours and i just seem to make stupid mistakes - betting too big or playing trash hands etc etc.

This has meant that my last few final table appearances have seen me finish no higher than 6th - even when my chip count has been very healthy.

Does anybody have any tips on how they combat fatigue/screen blindness/boredom/brain meltdown??

Watch TV.

OT but funny MTT story.

Friend of mine got home from golf League after a few beers. Got onto an MTT at Paradise and was doing well, He was in the upper 20% at the first break. Top 30 places pay off and he was something like 40th.

It's break time so he closes his eyes to rest them for a second.

z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z

wakes up 3 hours later and see's he came in 35th. LOL

i've felt like that, another problem i have is that i have to play after i get in from work at 5pm.....usually start a tourney at 7.30, by the time i get to the FT, its 11.30 and i'm knackered and in need of my bed.

I play a cash game on the side, a small table keeps the action going and when my multi deals a decent hand I can dump/sit out with ease to give it my full attention
