Very unlucky. I bet it feels even more different when you play such a tournament. But you need to keep it up and start playing chasing such games again. Look at bullet how he is doing. He is persistent and doing great. gl

man, saw a couple of your hands when you were at 12,000 and you jumped to 14,000. You did some very good moves there. Bad luck that variance showed its ugly face with these pairs.
I've played a 250K Gtd with 215$ buy-in some time ago, and was cold-carded throughout the whole game. I believe that these tourneys that are way beyond your bankroll, serve just one purpose: Take all that you can from this game and never feel guilty for anything, cause it's a very different game in these buy-ins.
Enjoy the experience and don't let it distract you from your usual game in the stakes you feel comfortable. It's just variance, nothing more or less, but it's unlucky that you experienced it so badly in this high stakes tourney, and not on a $1 SnG...
Hunt down these qualifiers as much as you can and when you manage to get big tickets, play them to the max. GL with the next one!
