I hate getting it in so early in a tourney but I think this spot was justified.

Many would just shove all in but I never gave up and didn't panic.

I wanted a load of limpers in this next spot but I'm calling any raise or shove. When I missed the flop completely I had to fold. I know I'm really short but still can pick a hand for all in.

Suited connectors are strong enough although I know I need to hit lucky.

Never panic again, just keep waiting on spots to accumulate chips.

Remember the whale that busted my KK? Unlucky bubbleboy.

50 chips and a chair

Thanks guys, I was 4 tabling and played my A+ game. I won 2 and a 2nd and 3rd.

I mentioned the T9s hand on my blog. Many would shove in this spot but limping here gives others a chance to limp behind me. If I shove I may scare out players who would otherwise limp. I don't mind if someone raises behind me, I'm never folding pre flop and T9s is a great hand in a multi way pot. When I bricked the flop I think it's an easy and correct fold even though it only leaves me with 50 chips. I never panicked at any stage and although I got lucky with the 97s I felt I played really well throughout.

The K5o call was a difficult decision but I felt 3 against 1 is a good way to KO the player as one of us would only bet if really strong. I felt doubly pleased because the player KO'd was the whale that cracked my KK with his QJo.

Heads up 2 pair was just too strong to pass even though I felt there was a decent chance I was behind. If he'd have raised pre he'd have won the hand without a showdown so it was his mistake and not mine. My check on the turn was to indicate weakness and I thought he would raise (as he had done before.)
