Local NL hold'em tourney at the Knights of Columbus

I played a NL hold'em tourney at the local Knights of Columbus run by these guys
who run the tourney well but there were only 33-35 poeple who showed up!...it was advertised but it gave me a better chance to win...I ended up tying for first place..the chip leader had probably a 2-1 chip advantage at about 11:00PM so we decided to end it there..he got a little bit more of the prize pool. Only the top three paid so I was happy with the result. the thing that cracks me up is the typical character that show up...one or two of the guys that showed up seemed to be Josh Arieh clones...I don't know what that is all about but I busted one of them out with a K-Jc for a flush on the river..he had Q-9c...oh man was he sour! It didn't take long to get to the final table...there was a whole 'lotta bluffin' goin' on. Everytime it was checked to me I went all in...the other guys seemed to be holding on for the last three spots....The last 3 were one of the Josh Arieh clones..me and an old guy that had most of the chips...who ended up busting out the JA clone...then we decided to split the last two prizes pro-rated for chip count of course...not bad for my 3rd live tourney...
