I had a low stack most of the tourney. I doubled up about 3 times, and then got dealt AK all three times and lost a lot of chips by raising and cbet/folding because I missed every flop.
My hand of the tourney was as follows:
Blinds are 150/300/25ante, 5 limpers! I limp on the button with 77, sb folds (lol), and we have 7 people to the flop of AQT two diamonds, and its check around. The turn is a J, and its checked to me on the button. Right now I have about 6k in chips and I didn't think anyone had a king, but I was positive at least somone had two pair, a set, or a flush draw and would call a bet on the turn and fold an unimproved had to a river shove. I bet 1700, and the SB, BB and UTG call. I put UTG on AA, because he limped-reraised UTG with AA about 4 hours ago. The SB and BB were definitely players capable of check-calling the turn with two pair, and they would check-raise the turn with a king. The river is a black 9. The pot is about 9,000. All three of them check, and I pause a few moments and shove for ~4500. SB and BB fold, and UTG says "I played this about as bad as I could have" and folds.
I played the $500 this morning and was about on about the 6th hand with aces against a flopped set that I stacked off to.
