Hand from last night

Here is the final hand of a $5 tourney on Full Tilt last night
I think I played it right But it still bothers me today.

Full Tilt Poker
No Limit Holdem Tournament
Blinds: t600/t1200
(Ante: t150)
9 players

Stack sizes:
UTG: t12159
UTG+1: t38518
MP1: t19970
MP2: t13677
MP3: t23538
CO: t31408
Button: t23817
Hero: t19112
BB: t15774

Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is SB with :td :tc
UTG calls t1200 (pot was t3150), UTG+1 calls t1200 (pot was t4350), 3 folds, CO calls t1200 (pot was t5550), Button raises to t4800, Hero raises all-in t18962, 4 folds, Button calls t14162 (pot was t29912).

Flop: :9h :5s :4c (t44074, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: t44074)
Turn: :4d (t44074, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: t44074)
River: :qc (t44074, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: t44074)
Final pot: t44074
Button showed Qd Ad
Hero showed Td Tc

My thinking was with 4 limpers TT might very well be the best hand and I had been playing pretty tight. I was surprised he called the AI for 4/5ths of his stack with AQ since with 5 limpers I figured him for a steal and a Reraise from behind him had to tell him at best he was a flip and at worst he was dominated.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Your thought process was right on. The money went in with you as a slight fav and you can't fault that. Just don't assume that the other person is thinking the same way that you are. I've donked off far too many chips after looking at a hand and saying to myself that i SHOULD have played it exactly as I did if only they were paying attention.
