So Close Again !!!!

Played a few multis only as still too hot really, biggest buy in was the 10k, £27 only 302 players.
Was running steady the whole way until i lost a 88 vs KQstd coinflip then i became in last 5 places as we approached the bubble. Sustained stack OK then got nice treble up KJstd vs 88 vs 66 and then never looked back until final table. Doubled through from 10k to 20k with QQ vs 88 then had a very mad hand against a weak player, cant find hand history so summarise here.

me 99 on button 22k stack this other guy plays before me 40k stack blinds 400,800 with ante.
he raises to 2400 and i decide to flat call with 99 as dont wanna flip at this stage as im well stacked in relation to the blinds. flop is K9rag rainbow he checks and i check hoping to build a big pot from turn. Turn is a blank rag and he bets 3500, i raise him to 7000 and he flat calls, ok im not sure wtf hes got but happy with call. River is a 2nd king and after he checks i hope he has slow played AK but to be honest i have no idea what he has the way it has unfolded maybe middle pocket or something. I move allin 11k and he calls me instantly with AQ on his completely missed board unreal, what a double lol.

Anyway that set me up well and i never was in doubt to make the final table realisticly after that. 10 minutes before i was 2400 stack 42nd/44 left and now im 45k stack 2nd/28 lovely lol.

Right the beats came as usual at the final table and i will post the history here for the biggie.

Pot to go 2/8 , ok its a fairly standard beat on the face of it but this guy is unreal. 10 minutes earlier playing a 22k stack with 13 players left and 7 handed he raises the 2400bb to 7200 and then proceeds to fold when the short stack moves allin 12000. 5k more for a 25k pot i cant believe he folded that and then calls me for his whole stack at the final table with a hand that is 100% beaten basically every time i make that overraise move as im no where near the button or the blinds.

I pushed next hand with 77 and stole , then a few hands later i got 77 again and went with it knowing i was called ( i only had 5 xbb at this point and there was a raiser already)

Turned out i was up against KQ and he hit to take the 46k pot which would have got me right back in , but i finish 8th for a poor £300. £2500 for 1st, £1600 for 2nd and £900 for 3rd OUCH OUCH OUCH.

KK is still my favourite hand , dont think that will ever change even if i win the WSOP.

Only other close one was the 163 player $22 at midnight which i busted on a flop when i moved 3500 allin for only a 1100 pot from the small blind with 97off on a 9d8h3d flop only to be called by 8d2d. This is 49.9% vs 50.1% according to my calculator so as 50/50 as u get. I did right and got all chips in first so not much else i could do. Anyway pot was to go 9/27 on reasonable stack of about 9k with the blinds only 150,300 + antes, but fair enough i guess.

Positives are another final table, with minor profit on the night.
Negatives are the obvious basic luck i need to finish top 3 or win 1 of these where the real money is.
