cashed 1st time, 5th place 2nd time, going for a 3rd straight cash.

everythings been going my way so far this tourney, got up to 5k pretty fast. i pick up queens UTG and this is what happens

quick summary:
I raise to 200 (blinds 25/50) UTG. rest of early positions fold. middle position short stack shoves 750), 2 callers. i reraise to about 1600 to get one of the callers all in and to hopefully scare off the big (ish) stack that also called to fold.

flop comes A25 or something. Big stack is in the hand and goes all in (i have about 1k behind) so i fold. Big stack turns over ace duece. the other 2 all ins had JJ and 33.

So i SHOULD have won if not for the donk in the big blind calling a 3 bet and a 4bet shove and then a 5 bet reraise with ace2.

****ing ridiculous

well **** Im out in 800th place.

Donk now has like 9k chips to my right. im in SB she raises I have K4 suited so I make a call. Flop my king 2 hearts. I check she bets I raise she calls. turn is an ace and me just being pissed at this idiot shoves my last 1700 chips, snap calls. she had aces and hit trips.

thanks pokerstars for giving the donk crap to build a huge stack and then having the nuts when I flop top pair.

bad play by me shoving with king high but this player got to me and I have studying to do so I shouldn't be playing anyway but unbelievable and now that idiot has a monster chip stack and is gonna get far in the tourney
