ok so i just made my first ever mtt final table, im pretty stoked with the result!

the tournament was i $25 freeroll with 1900 people and i ended up finishing 4th and winning $1.78...

i thought i would share some of my more decision heavy hands in the later stages of the tournament because towards the end the blinds got big quick and there was a ridicules amount of all in pre flops going round...

so yeah all advise is welcome im really hoping to improve my tournament game!

im pretty sure i played this hand perfectly never really gave him credit for any type of good hand... but was it a bit risky of me to raise him pre flop with my hole card
even though i was almost sure he was just stealing the blinds?

again im 99% sure i did everything right here in this hand dont see how i could have possible gotten any more value?

did i make the right decision here? cause i was pretty sure the button had nothing and was just trying to steal and did i just catch a bad break that the bb was sitting on jacks?

this hand was tricky for me... im really not sure if i made the correct decesion... he was the big stake at the table and he limped pre flop so i doubt he had an ace and i dont no about the king but the board was just to wet and i didnt really what to try something against the big stake...

so that sums it up all advise is welcome, good or bad
