Event 9 $1,500 NL 6 Max

With 3000 starting chips (60bbs) its a really shallow tournament so i went there with the intentions of building a stack early or busting.

We're playing 5 handed as a guy hasn't arrived yet and i raise j/10ss utg 1st hand to 150. Button calls and the bb defends. We see a 9 high flop with 2 spades and i lead about half pot after the bb checks, both fold.

I then fold my small blind and bb to raises and on hand 4 its folded to the cutoff who raises to 150 i re-pop him to 475 on the button with a/k. He then 4 bets to 1400 and i shove. He tank calls with q/q, lol, 1st card on the flop is an ace swiftly followed by a queen and a 10. I miss my gutshot and am elimiated in the 1st 5 mins of play.
