Busted out #4 mini-FTOPS for min cash

So I just busted out of the fist mini-FTOPs event I will play this series.

It was a $20+2 No Limit Hold`em 1 Rebuy+1 Add on tourney. There were a bit over 8k entrants with a prize pool over $350k while the 945 places got a payday. The first place was ~69k!

The very first hand I hit top set with TT in BB vs MP but only got his cbet. Then I busted my fist Buy-In on the following hand:

Villian is so far a 35/30ish guy after 12 hands so I think tthe river call is okay:

After this I went pretty card dead but shortly after the add-on period (for another 2500 chips) I managed I get it AIpre with AK vs AQ and I held up. After this hand my stack was double the average one but I was complete card dead and the tables was full of maniacs so I could not steal at least. When we were 3 hours into the toruney I got some nice hands but did not any serious money with them. I got KK in the BB and a short stack opened 3x UTG1. I shove since I was pretty short although and he folded. LOL. Then I got AKo twice but could only picked up blinds and antes. So I crippeld down pretty bad (I got no other playable hands).

Then I made a somewhat sick mistake thinking we were only 9 spots away from the money when we were in fact 109 spots away. That was the reason I folded KJo with a M of 5 UTG.... Well, I would get called by AKs but the board was xxKJx.... LOL. I am wondering how deep I would made it when I would made the shove.

But somehow I still got in the money and right after the bubble busted I got it AI with AA UTG and a shorty and a big stack called. I hold up and got my stack to 25k. I think the average at this point was maybe ~36k. Suddenly I thought I had a decent chance to make a deepr run but just a few hands later this one came up:

I made it in the money and got my last 11k up to 25k after I got AA the very first hand after the bubble busted.

Final hand:

Well, I got it in as a 70/30 favorite but obv I can not win such a key hand. So I cashed in for $70.94. I swapped 10% with a fellow FT reg who busted not far away from the money so I made a whopping ~$63 since I brought in with points only.Should be more after over 4 hours of playing but nothing you can do.

On a side note I did not played one cah game hand so far today and I doubt I will do it. I am pretty pissed of right now and will just play some X Box 360 now lol. Maybe I find the motivation to play a bit later.

The next event is tomorrow and maybe I can make it deeper this time.

Edit: So I decided to put in a small session since the tables on a Friday are most of the times awesome aka very fishy and I wanted to stay in pace for the prop and for my Iron Man chase. I had maybe the greatest run over cards ever speaking of starting hands . I got 3x AA, 2x KK, 6x QQ (I folded one of them pre vs a reg 3bet OOP and would flopped top set lol), 2x AKs and 6x AKo in only 675 hands. But at the end I am only up $2.65!!!!
I made maybe one spewy shove with just an overpair but it was a 3bet pot we played 3way and there were already a lot of money in the pot on the flop.
Oh, and I got owned by a fish HU when he limps AKo OTB and the board came xAAx. Obv I had A7. At least he was only 40bb deep lol.
So so sick esp I was already up $80 at one point in the session!!
I am pretty upset with Poker for today so now it is def time for the xbox!
