Its a nice looking hand lol, I am guilty of this leak too.. but it is an easily dominated hand, especially when you are OOP

When I saw the title I knew before reading it you ran into AK lol

Don't say always. Never say always, because as soon as you say always, you become predictable. And if you're predictable, you're exploitable. Also, never say never. Partially for the same reason, but also because Justin Bieber says not to. And that's all you really need to know.

KQo is not necessarily a fold UTG, imo. roomik makes a good point, but I think it's actually an okay open if there's some special reason for it (e.g. there's a fish in the blinds). In a PSO game, you typically have to play tighter, so always folding KQo UTG wouldn't be terrible by any stretch, but if you note in this case, the table was shorter-handed, which is another reason to expand your UTG range (you're technically not UTG for a 9-handed table anymore, you're UTG+1).

I take a two-hour nap daily, and sleep for a week straight once every two months.

11k chips is enough to get ITM in this.... so I'd fold it.

Remember, goal #1 is to cash... goal #2 is to win.

Perhaps not if it isn't a PSO game. I think the $50 added games have a 20% payout structure, and I think that the flatter payout structure does argue for more stack protection and less chip accumulation. But since it's a regular MTT, you should aim high. You don't have to go crazy though, I guess.
