End of the year

I hope to play one more time before the year ends, because I would like to end it on a winning note, my last 2 sessions have been disastrous playing 30-60 limit and then 3-6 NL. I played yesterday like 10 or 11 hours non-stop no limit and quit because I just couldn't stand my last bad beat (posted below, BB Warning alert!!!), but I played pretty bad during the night, bluffing way too much on the wrong spots. I really need to study more, the competition is just too hard and you need to keep up with them if you want to survive.

Not really a "real" bad beat, but when you're losing you really want to win hands like this one.
