Out kinda early in another tournament

Just got bounced out of the 2:00 tournament on UB in 172nd place. 340 started. I was off to a quick start then slid back. I had a respectable if not fantastic chip count when this last hand came up. I felt the gamble was worth it...obviously I wish I had it to do over but then i'm not so sure it was such a bad thing. The main thing I think I did wrong was not raise pre-flop. I'd love to hear different if anybody would care to critique it :) (like anybody reads this...except you Robin..thanks for hanging in there through something that must be like Greek to you).

Here is the hand, you decide, how badly did I screw up?

Hand #5870958-60 at Tue2pmA-014 (No Limit tournament Hold'em)

I don't think you did so bad considering...yeah considering I have no idea what you are talking about. I just skim the entry and look for dollar signs and if you are happy or sad! xoxo

I wouldn't have gone all in with an overcard on the board, I think I'd have made a value bet to see if anyone was stronger than me, if no one raised, the next time I'd probably have checked if possible all the way thru the hand...or made another small value bet...if the other player was slow playing me, at least this way I'd have been able to get away without being knocked out of the tourney. :)
