I had a favorable table draw considering the remaining field, with the toughest spot being Michael DeMichele two seats to my left.
I also had a great stack of $249k @ $1,500/$3,000 with a $300 ante, which put me in great shape with under 100 players left and 50 places paid.
However, I was unable to get much going early on, and slowly bled chips away until I was under $160k. Then I picked up AA vs. KK and made a full house with 6-6, but managed to not get max value out of either hand.
