You are exactly correct. After I busted out I said (I knew everyone playing in the tournament almost). I said Bob congrates on folding to a higher pay out (I play to win) might be why I usually bubble out or at least only cash on the lower end of big tournaments or win nothing in between.
Plus by this point the final table (that started with 10 people) lasted 2:40 mins (4 people left when I busted). It went on for another 1:45mins before HU (the guy with the really low stack stuck around for a while) HU only lasted 2 mins from what I was told (I left sad after I lost). The earlier part of the tournament went pretty slowly as well. Blinds moved up every 20mins. so they where very high by the time it got to 4 people. I also think I played WAY too tight leading up to that point.
When I was on the button I knew the guy at the SB position was going to push with any PP not too worried about him cause he was so small stack, but the BB when I was on the button pushed all in to any of my earlier raises and said "I will go all-in every time you raise on the button and if you go all in I will call with anything". He said he was OK with finishing ITM and the tournament lasted way too long and was late getting somewhere. So I had a hard time stealing chips at any time.
