I think my tourney game is getting alot better...FT in a small tourney

so i have been playing alot of tourneys lately and been making really deep runs but bust in the final 3 tables or so. I think i am finally starting to understand alot of situations better and have been doing really good in alot of the large field FTP tourneys. I play the daily doubles and the midnight madness almost every chance i get and each one has about 1000 players each time and that is where alot of my deep finishes have been coming but with only 1 FT when my roomate got called into work and i had to finish of one of the DD for him and ended up getting 5th i think. I count that as my own FT because he left with like 800 ppl in it still and only had 900 chips. Anyways, tonight i was playing in the only tourney that was starting on FT and it was a small $5.50 tourney with 400 ppl and i ended up getting second for like $300. I think i played really good in this tourney only sucking out 1 time and that was 3 handed and i wasnt far behind really, the big stack raised from the button and i had AJ in the SB with about 65k in front and the blinds at 2500/5000 and won a flip against 44 to get back in it. I was really happy when he knocked out the other guy because i have been working on my HU play ALOT and was really ready to see what i could do but the second hand into it i had QQ and lost an AIPF hand against AK and was out. Oh well cant complain really, this guy was running sooooo sick im surprised i didnt lose to something like 22.

Pretty disappointing day in poker

So i played the 3 rebuy on FT and was down to 10 ppl and i had a decent stack and was in 5th place but of course on FT all the bigstacks get put on the same table. I had AQs on the button and the 1st place guy limped utg but had been doing that alot so i raised to 4500 at 800/1600 with 37000 left behind, limper thinks for a while and repops to 15k even so i insta shove knowing pretty well i was probably ahead since he had been pushing the table around alot and he calls with K10s and the door card was a K to give him the lead, turn A and i take it back then obv K on the river to put me out 10th when 3 players had under 15k left. then to top it off, i was in 1st of a $10/180 sng from about 115 down to 30 when i get 1010 and raise a SS but comitting myself to the pot if he pushes and he wakes up w QQ to put me in 10th, lots of hands go by and i get wittled down to 20/25 then double through to get back to 9th. Very next hand i get KK in the sb folds around to me, i raise, get reraised then shove ..... into AA lol. and am out 19th.
I have been really happy with my play lately making alot of deep runs in tourneys but it just always seems that i lose a huge flip at the most crucial the final table bubbles. I think in the past week i have like 3 top 15 finishes w 0 FTs and 7 top 25 finishes. I cant wait for when i can actually start winning some flips deep in a tourney so i can finally get a win in a tourney that has more then 200ppl in it. When that time finally does come i am sure that i will be killing it.....

Coolest video ever here is the link if it doesnt work
