I really wanted to win this one (don't we all) but seriously I came into this tournament with the mindset that I would really play some good poker and it turned out that I did have my "A" game going today. Unfortunately I didn't have a lot of premium hands but won a lot of chips when I did get my money in with the best, making some very good calls to pick off bluffs and a lot of preflop pots with raises and reraises (many times with junk) putting pressure on guys who folded like tents.
My downfall was losing an 800K pot 4 handed when I called off 80 percent of my chips w AJo on my raise and reraise allin. I ran into pocket 9s and they held up. The guy I called was very very aggressive and he had a huge range so in hindsight I'm not devastated as I gave myself a very good chance to win the tournament but couldn't find that Ace or Jack which seem to always hit the board at FT, well at least the Aces do.
Still am pleased and the 400.00 is a nice boost to my depleted bankroll.
