1st Live game win

I've been trying to play live as well as online recently and am just getting into the rhythm of it.
So I was down at the local Aria last night playing a £20, £2000 guranteed tourny which had attracted about 130 players. Managed to catch a few nice hands and was playing well (except having to be reminded to post the odd blind here and there...Doh), as the night wore on we got to the final table bubble I was 2nd in chips and just minding my own business picking up blinds and antes to keep the short stacks on their toes.
2 to my right happens to be the seat of 1st in chips and a regular down at the casino so I'm trying to tangle as little as possible with him until we lose 1 more player and the seats get redrawn. I then happen to wake up in the BB with KK, Mr chipleader on the button is the only person to act and he makes it his standard 5BB to go so I smooth call and set my trap muhahaha.
The flop comes K,A,K NIIIIICE... And like the pro I am check, long story short a click back war begins until we are both all in and the cards are face up. Quad Kings Vs As full of Ks... Sick cooler. Managed to fade the turn and river WHEW and became a strong chip leader.
Managed to use the chipstack well on the final table and went into heads up play with a 12:1 advantage. AK vs KQ held and I took down 1st :)   havent been this happy in a while
