          Congrats, confidence is important, but I'd like to give you a little tip. Because I took the time to watch the hands you boomed from this tournament, and I wouldn't really say there's anything spectacular there, might've been something you thought was a "hero-call" or a great play in the heat of the moment. The only hand I really liked was the ATo hand where you 3bet his reraise on the J22r flop. I'm not here to discuss hands, but I'm here to remind you that when you get to a final table, and when you want to look back - don't only think about how the final table was played. You should now take your time if you have tracked stats and hands to look on which hands you lost chips, which ones you made chips, and hands that you'd normally play, but didn't - was it your chips dictating that, your position, their stacks, the action infront of you etc.

          I want you to realize what went right and what went wrong this tournament, because looking back at your boomed hands will help you nothing at all in the future. Just take your time and analyze the entire tournament, it will do you good - and help your confidence even more. There might be situations where you'll be thinking "Ohh, man I was running good", and other situations you'll realize that "WOW, I played that hand the best possible way". This is the best example of a tournament played to the fullest potential(hopefully) by you, which means that you can learn a lot about yourself and from yourself. I hope you listen to this advice because sometimes it's good to remember why you got deep; was it the cards, was it good play - was it both? Congrats again, I envy your score!

                Thanks everyone for the kind words!

                And TarekGG, I sent my entire hand history to my coach who will review it all. Of course I have to do it first and give him notes for everything. Like you said reviewing a tournament is the best way to improve. Of course I got lucky, everyone has to if you want to go this deep. Also, I remember spots where I screwed up and definitely some spots I played well. Look forward to the review and playing more MTTs after.
