Transperancy and suck-age Part III (3rd hour)

Fold AJo in the SB vs.UtG 3x raise.  He had Ac7c?!  Makes Flush (vs. shorty all-in caller)??  WTF Bulgaria??

(8) A tough hand with middling pairs.  Unless you hit the flop!

OMG! Handed me $1900 in chips on a HERO CALL!  Thanks!

Raise to 1k with AhQh in cutoff, no callers.  (200/400/50)

(9) Sat stunned with 55 (folded to me) in MP and decided to just call.  Cutoff with only 1800 shoves.  SB re-shoves for 5k and I fold it.   AT vs. AK re-shove.  K on river.  I would have called the 1800 I think.   So, all's w4ll that ends w4ll. 

I have $12.7k and avg is 12.8k.  There are 370 left 1/2 way through the 3rd hour.  We have had 9 or our hands of excitement so far...  We are at the 20% left marker and here is where mistakes become fatal...
also of note that M is just 10 here, and thus there is not any room for small-ball.  We are coming at pots with guns blazing and with control only.

Folded to me in Hijack and I raise to 1250 with AQo.  No Callers.

FOLD KQo in MP when player on right open shoves with $4200.  My position is too early.  He gets called by the button with TT but turns a set.  Lucky him.  (I would have flopped TP). 
Meanwhile average has crept up to $16k as players flame out.  Level moves up to 300/600/75.

Fold BB of 75o to shove.  Hardly worth noting except that I am bleeding chips and not seeing many hands.

(10) I get to see a discount flop (4 players) from SB with Jh9h and flop heart draw (KcTh3h).  I check-call a min bet of 600 and then the turn is an Ad.  I check and LP OBV SHOVES 15K!?  He hit the Ace.  Crap.  I fold.  $10k left.  (Would you have shoved the flop?)

Table move.  Q=0.5

Open-Fold KJo in Hijack as its a weak hand to shove with, and I have no play with my short stack.   Its a new table, so I dont know who would call my shove (player on Button has $71k).  Same goes for A9s UtG+1.  (4th hand at new table).  Two players get it all in pre-flop with marginal hands.  A9 would not have won though.

UGH.  Fold 54o in BB vs. UTG raiser.  Fold 24o in SB to UTG+1 raiser.  M=M-1.  241 left.

Blinds move to 400/800/100 and I am looking for ATC to shove in a good spot.  Still fold A9o when UTG makes it 3x.  UTG+1 3 bets and SB 4bets!   (Ak, AK, QQ)  A9o no good at all.  225 left. Cards suck.  Spots suck.  Cant find a crack anywhere.

End of hour 3.  I have 8k, Avg is just under 22k with 219 left. 
We are just going to have to get some chips.

There sure is a lot of ROT going on here...

No, I am not lamenting the results or complaining. I am just asking, "Hey, am I playing well?"

You let the blinds become worth about 20% of your entire stack - if you can't shove with KJ from late position on a new table you are losing in the long run. You shouldn't even care what your cards are if you get to open from late position with blinds representing such a large part of your stack... 9/3, great! You actually had enough to make them really not want to call. Letting that opportunity get away was the mistake.
