So close...

I was so close... I really wanted that $4,680 first place prize. Instead I end up with $945...



I played pretty tight after accumulating big stack early and in the end, I had a medium stack and ended up jamming A9 from the button into the BB who woke up with 99. It was kind of an overbet shove so I'm wondering if that shove was ill advised. There were 6 remaining though so it would have been tough to lay down A9 against a resteal shove from the big stack who could be doing it with such a wide range.

Thanks to Smokkee for the rail. What were you doing up so early???
