So you became the big stack by actually making a hand on the flop, and you lost your stack by overplaying your cards when you didn't really have a made hand. There's your answer. Just because you set-mined a bunch of people once, doesn't mean that your luck is going to hold. Play consistently and you will get better results.
Prefer to be calm after get big early stack. It's bigger chance to get loose and easier way to get some risk to play. Another way is limping or just bluffing with high stake and much more diffrent strategies.
