Last Wednesday night tourney ends in loss.

Well I didn't cash in my tournament last night. I was playing pretty well, had a bout 30BB left with 30 people left. One hand pretty much ended my night though. I'm on the button every one folds to the Button every one folds except the women(Tight Aggressive Player) to my right who fires a 2,220 raise, the blinds are 300-600. I look down at K-10 suited , and make the call. The flop comes Q-K-7 rainbow, and she checks. I'm thinking she probably has A-Q, and wants to see how much she is going to have to pay to play her hand if I hit the king. I fire a 2,500 bet about half the pot. She re raises me all in. I realize she has K-Q, since she has only made these bets with two pair or better. I tell her I know you have K-Q, and lay it down. Of course she does in fact turn over K-Q. 2 minutes later the blinds raise to 100,400,800 I catch rags for the next 10 hands so right before the blinds hit me for the second time I look down at J-10 suited and push my last 1500 in the middle. I miss the flop completely, and leave in 21st place.
Wish my last low buy in tourney went better, but it just gave more of a reason to start playing deep stack tourneys, so I wont have to worry about the blinds constantly. I'm heading up to the Hard Rock Casino this Wednesday in Tampa to play my first $115 dollar buy in tourney, and to visit some friends in the area.
