Scent of final table messes with head

I had made it down to the final two tables of a 64 player tourney by playing sensible, not too fancy poker all the way down the line. I'm in the SB and it has been folded down to SB and BB. BB is the shortest stack at the table, and I had actually managed to work my way towards healthy stack for a change.

I have ATs.

I get ahead of myself and offer an all-in wager to the BB.

BB has AQs.

On the up side, I had the BB covered, but it was a crippling blow from which I was unable to recover. I finished 12th or 13th in the field of 64.

Six hours of play shot down by one bad decision.
