Awesome hand

So I recently got a copy of DD Tournament Poker and decided to engage in one of their online games. This, of course, doesn't involve real money but the people tend to play less stupidly then on free poker sites. Anyway, I joined a tourney with 25 people on three tables. Anyway, we were about three rounds into the tourney, when this happened.

Table "DD Poker MGM Grand Evening Trnm't Frmt 2" Hand #23 -- Seat 7 is the button
Seat 2: CYRUS (2,600 in chips)
Seat 3: ACESSUITED (6,500 in chips)
Seat 4: Dash (12,300 in chips)
Seat 5: Rialtus (10,400 in chips) <-- Second place at my table, third overall
Seat 6: ANGEL ~^i^~ (2,600 in chips)
Seat 7: mean dewey (8,500 in chips)
Seat 8: jsmithjr732 (800 in chips)
Seat 9: Dead_ Zone (5,400 in chips)
jsmithjr732: Post Small Blind (200)
Dead_ Zone: Post Big Blind (400)
Dealing...
Dealt to Rialtus [ Ts ]
Dealt to Rialtus [ Ks ] <-- KT suited. Not horrible, but not great.
CYRUS: Call (400)
ACESSUITED: Call (400)
Dash: Call (400)
Rialtus: Raise (1400) <-- What the heck. Let's take it for a spin.
ANGEL ~^i^~: Fold
mean dewey: Fold
jsmithjr732: Call (600) <-- All in #1
Dead_ Zone: Call (1000)
CYRUS: Fold
ACESSUITED: Call (1000)
Dash: Call (1000)
*** FLOP *** : [ Tc Qh 2c ] <-- Well, look at that - middle pair.
Dead_ Zone: Bet (1000) <-- We were at 1400 pre-flop, and he only puts in 1000 with 6400 already in the pot?
ACESSUITED: Call (1000)
Dash: Call (1000)
Rialtus: Raise (4000) <-- I'm last to act. Let me really go for it here, because I'm not buying the previous bets.
Dead_ Zone: Call (3000) <-- All in #2
ACESSUITED: Call (3000)
Dash: Call (3000)
*** TURN *** : [ Tc Qh 2c ] [ Th ] <-- Three of a kind
ACESSUITED: Check <-- Little nervous are we?
Dash: Bet (400) <-- What kind of wussy bet is that?!?!
Rialtus: Raise (5000) <-- MANLY BET, damnit! ALL IN!
ACESSUITED: Call (1100) <-- All in #3
Dash: Call (4600)
*** RIVER *** : [ Tc Qh 2c Th ] [ 4d ] <-- Yeah, I was very glad not to see another heart, club, or mid to high card for straight draws.
*** SUMMARY ***
Pot: 4,400 | Side pot 1: 18,400 | Side pot 2: 3,300 | Side pot 3: 7,800 | Board: [ Tc Qh 2c Th 4d ]
CYRUS lost 400
ACESSUITED lost 6,500 (showed hand) [ Qs Jh ] (two pair, queens and tens)
Dash lost 10,400 (showed hand) [ Qd 8c ] (two pair, queens and tens) <-- So let's note here that they had me beat until the turn with a pair of queens...
Rialtus bet 10,400, collected 33,900, net +23,500 (showed hand) [ Ts Ks ] (three of a kind, tens)
ANGEL ~^i^~ didn't bet (folded)
mean dewey didn't bet (folded)
jsmithjr732 lost 800 (showed hand) [ 5d 6d ] (a pair of tens)
Dead_ Zone lost 5,400 (showed hand) [ As Ah ] (two pair, aces and tens) <-- ...and he had pocket aces. Gulp!

I knocked out three people (ACESSUITED, jsmithjr732, and Dead_Zone) and took a major chunk out another (Dash) in one hand, and got $23,500. These were regulars it seems over there, because there were lots of comments flying around about being snuffed out early, and real concern that Dash now wasn't going to make it to the end. I stayed fairly conservative the rest of the game. Having looked at some of the history after this hand, I passed a lot and let the other people play because I had zilch. I tested the waters a bit, and folded after the first raise a lot. Kept the tight image, and went in when I could. Ended up taking the whole tournament after 73 hands with AJo.

And that's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie.

The only thing I can think DZ must have been thinking after the flop was that he would drive everyone out with a bet that was so small, everyone would sniff him out and lay their hands down. Of course, if you want to take the pot down right there, that's a dumb idea.

Also I'm not sure what jsmith was doing moving in with that hand? He's going to see the next seven hands for free, and while 5d6d isn't THAT bad, I'd have to think he could do better than that before the blinds came around to him again.
