:( I played this 90 $1 Stg last night. I was chip leader for 3/4's of the tournament. I came to the final table in a good position to take down, I had a good table image and was playing pretty good. Here's the final table when it started. I was 2nd in chips.

full tilt poker Game #6661394135: $1 + $0.25 Sit & Go (50616223), Table 8 - 800/1600 Ante 200 - No Limit Hold'em - 4:24:10 ET - 2008/06/02
Seat 1: loneshark 069 (22,905)
Seat 2: FUTBOLCHE (5,650)
Seat 3: mattv84 (27,083)
Seat 4: MrToymaker (42,376)
Seat 5: nyterisa (10,755)
Seat 6: dandeeks (83,334) hyper aggressive with big stack, waiting to double off him
Seat 7: sommeranne (12,879)
Seat 8: Envidocon22 (40,576)
Seat 9: RICHANDFAMOUS1 (24,442) tight and I observed great play from him

I started the meltdown of the chip leader(seat 6) with two key pots I trapped him and seat 9 finshed off. Seat nine won some huge pots knocking off most of the Table. I made 1 double up and we started HU

Full Tilt poker game #6661517644: $1 + $0.25 Sit & Go (50616223), Table 8 - 1200/2400 Ante 300 - No Limit Hold'em - 4:49:51 ET - 2008/06/02
Seat 4: MrToymaker (84,626)
Seat 9: RICHANDFAMOUS1 (185,374)
MrToymaker antes 300
RICHANDFAMOUS1 antes 300
MrToymaker posts the small blind of 1,200
RICHANDFAMOUS1 posts the big blind of 2,400

I'm a improving HU player. This guy I felt was passive in HU. So I took advantage, with aggressive betting and check raising with something or nothing. I finailly get a slight chip lead and then this hand

Did I get too aggressive? with A 10 ? I feel I played the hand correct in HU. The next hand I will admit I gave up and shoved with J 10. The tournament was extra long and I was disheartned with last hand.

1st Hand AT is a raising hand. As played I would have stop-n-go after his raise.

2nd hand Another good setup for the stop-n-go

Since you were beating him down hu could have continued to play smaller pots. He probably realized this and tried to play one big hand before you ate any more of his stack. Came down to last card, so close.

Hand 2, call the 7.2K raise and then push the flop
