Alas poor Mirage I hardly knew ye.

I lasted about 3.5 levels in the Mirage event. I got up to a high water mark of about 37k by sucking out on Brad "Yukon" Booth with the nut flush draw against trips. I then lost about 7k, with the nut flush draw against something that made me fold on the river. The only hand I regret looking back is blowing off 10k to Jeff Shulman with AA postflop. He had reraised me preflop and I just called. He flopped 2-pair but I put in way more chips than I had to.

My bustout hands is one of the weirdest experiences of my poker playing career. I have roughly 17k with the blinds at 200/400 a25. I raise to 1k in MP with QsJs. Patrick Antonius who is a very very good, very tricky player calls in the BB. The flop is 972 with two spades. He checks, I bet 2k, he calls. The turn brings an offsuit low card and now Antonius leads for 4500. I think the hand through, and believe that he is fairly weak here and I move all-in for 14300 total (9800 more). He thinks for a very long time and finally calls. I still dont understand how he makes the call with K2o, but he does, and I miss my 14 outs on the river and have another dissapointing first day exit.

Does Patrick know you? Does he know your playing style is extremely aggressive? Obviously he a very skilled player, so he must of had some good read on you and he went with it. Also, what was his starting stack to the hand?

How do you know this guy is good?
He's probably a dog to a random hand here, maybe he's just bad or he saw your cards.

i should probably have mentioned that he had bottom pair (9742 board) although that doesnt change things all that much.

As sick a call that was, don't you think you may want to think about how he made it. I gotta believe there is something on your end you could do so that he doesn't make that call. I'm not trying to rag on you, and i know he's a sick player, i'm just trying to help.
