      Didn't watch the results, because you can't never play result oriented game.
      I think you played your hand fine. I'd raise KJs, since I have position and it is good hand.
      Flop: you can call here with two overcards and flushdraw.
      Turn: I'd also call, although MP1 is representing set or two pair here, but sometimes he'll show here flushdraw or some random cards.
      River: I'd shove. You have top two pair and MP1 has less than potsize left. If he has set, then I won't bet/fold my hand never, but is he happens to have two pair or maybe one pair, he'll call all-in often enough to make shove profitable.
