Dealing and proping

I'm a dealer at a very slow casino and every day between five and seven the game takes a nose dive.  Well I get off shift at 6:30 and every night the night dealers push me into playing to help keep the game going.  I don't mind helping out the home team but I also need to prop almost every day to start the game.  Between playing to start the game and helping over the hump in the early evening I'm blowing the meek amount of tolks i make all day. It is starting to piss me off, I know that some of you are dealers and I was wondering if anyone had any good advice on how to hold onto my money a little better.

February 10, 2008, 2AM: Played 3 hours, 30 minutes, Made $78.21 at Full Tilt Poker
$2.25 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (2nd out of 237 Players)

SOUR TASTE IN MY MOUTH!!!! I played a great tournament and steadily chipped up after I lost the very first hand of the tournament with KK. I made what I think was the right laydown with 88 on a flop of 456 and just played very smart. The final table was full of maniacs so I trapped them with my big hands and then attacked all the weak tight players.
Going into heads-up play, maniac had 250,000 and I had 150,000. I steadily just played small-ball, letting him make mistakes and me capitalizing. After a bit of a grind I took the chiplead. Then came this hand which basically shattered my chances to win the tournament:
Full Tilt Poker Game #5195915303: $2 + $0.25 Tournament (39377280), Table 4 - 1200/2400 Ante 300 - No Limit Hold'em - 5:30:49 ET - 2008/02/10

Seat 1: NatePring (small blind) showed [Ah Td] and lost with Ace Queen high

That turn card was just sick. It was also the difference between me making $70 more dollars or I'm pissed...

February 10, 2008, 1PM: Played 46 minutes, Broke Even at Full Tilt
$55 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1,313th out of 2454 Players)

Won this seat before...
Top 334 get $330 seats to todays main event.
Holding my own and I don't get this move.. K6 off limps late, I raise, pretty much all in pre with KQ, he decided to just move all in now pre.. I call and I'm like, "what?".. oh then he hits a 6 and I'm like, "cute".
Not sure where these guys come from or what possesses them to make such rediculious plays.. frustrating for now but I can rationalize the bad play as they are the "dead money".

Online poker play in Washington state

Washington state has some tough online poker laws.  Is it a wise idea to risk playing online if someone deals cards for a living, or should I, I mean someone else not worry about it?

My slump continues.
Haven't landed in the money since early this week and it really gets to you after awhile. I've identified problem areas and am working towards correcting them.
The biggest issue I noticed was that I would lose my patience really early for some reason and would begin playing marginal hole cards which would lead to bad calls and thus, early eliminations.
I will say that it's not entirely my fault though, these are two hands that I played earlier today:
SCORPIOEYEZ - Posts small blind $10
CARTER0 - Posts big blind $20
Dealt to SCORPIOEYEZ [Ah Js]
CTHEAGLE - Calls $20
858 - Calls $20

PAUL321 - Folds
SCORPIOEYEZ - Calls $570
CARTER0 - Folds
CTHEAGLE - Calls $560
858 - Calls $560
MAHWAH4 - Folds
*** FLOP *** [9h 7c 6h]
858 - Checks
*** TURN *** [9h 7c 6h] [3h]
858 - Checks
*** RIVER *** [9h 7c 6h 3h] [4c]
858 - Checks
*** SHOW DOWN ***

February 9, 2008, 5AM: Played 5 hours, 10 minutes, Made $1,290.64 at Full Tilt
$26 Buy-In Pot-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 211 Players)

Didn't want to play anymore tonight but Rob thought we should play this tournament while we messed around and worked on the site a bit.  Funny how when I am playing when I don't "want to" I end up doing well.
Just grinded the first 150 players, not really paying 100% attention and just playing my hands straight foreward.
Once close to the money started paying attention and taking notes.
One key hand that would have busted me with about 17 players left was JJ, early position raises a bit more than min, agro boy is on my left and loves to jump into these types of pots to float.. I get a bad feeling and just let it go and wait.  He re-raises and early goes all in.. although ahead with JJ, one had KQ and the other AK, they both improve and I would have gone bust.
Once down to the final table I just carefully picked my spots as agro boy was on my left.  Eventually got him heads up with a chip lead, he doubled with the old 84 suited when he flopped a gutshot and flush draw, made a pair of 8's to beat my 6s.  Back to the grind from behind.
I thought a lot about Nate and EightFives advice, "don't freeze up" and "be more aggressive".  Once I turned it on a bit and didn't let HIM have full control he broke down.  It enabled me to understand that when he min bet.. he had shit and when he checked to make a moderate bet as he either had nothing, most of the time, or was trapping, very rarely.
Once I figured this out he was toast, I just kept the pressure on until the end.
Thank you both for the help, my heads up play has improved dramatically and it is critical as the bulk of the money is made there.

Full Tilt = Full Rigged?

I've played my share of internet poker with good results in the long run. I've been playing some sit and go tourneys lately and I'm starting to notice some very odd "play".
I realize there are players far superior and far worse than me online, but these guys are cold calling with 94 off to make runner runner two pair to snap off aces and stuff. It doesn't take much of a player to figure out 94 off on the KQ2 rainbow flop doesn’t have much chance of dragging the pot on the river. You have no draw except runner runner two pair/trips. How are these guys consistently winning with such odd hands?
Now the 94 guy I was observing doesn't play every pot. As a matter of fact, the only pots I watched him play were ones he/she stayed to the river with and rolled over the winner. Everyone has heard the stories about hackers taking advantage on the internet poker. How far off are these "outlandish" stories?
Now internet security measures have classically been described as "reactive" since these companies are waiting to catch hackers breaking the rules and then fix the problem after the damage is done. Are there just too many of these "hackers and crackers" out there now to keep up with? Has internet poker become completely venerable to the average 14 year old fat white kid sitting in his parents' basement? Whats the story? Where are the articles talking about how far internet poker security has come in the last year?
