I think beating the final table is much more about the cards/hands the AI are playing rather than what cards you have and how you play them (unfortunately). You need to avoid actually playing intelligent poker here because the AI will not be. Work the blinds and wait for the right chance.

I recommend staying out of the way of the first 40ish hands or so until at least 2-3 people have been eliminated. You should concentrate on retaining as much of your money as you can throughout the tourney.

The AI seriously overvalues aces and will often continue betting their ace-rag starting hand no matter what carnage comes on the flop, turn, and river. I prefer to concentrate on attacking them pre-flop and exploiting their obvious tendencies since it is virtually impossible to put them on hands after the flop. They will bet anything very strongly, so you often have to move aside out of respect for their hand and they turn over rags (or a ragged ace that has no business still being in that particular hand). RRRrrr!!! Save your money, use the blinds to help you, and exploit as follows:

1.) MOST IMPORTANT- Any hand that is raised to you before your first turn, FOLD. That player has an ace, a pair, or something it thinks is good and will battle you relentlessly for the duration of that hand. Think risk/reward: wait for a better chance. You'd need at least a top 5 overall hand, and even then you can be pretty sure you'll end up showing it down. Not worth it...

2.) Never check when in the big blind (nobody raised to you). I like to put in 2 raises worth (Y, then 1 RB) when all the AIs call the blinds. They fold up shockingly often, and this will be one of the few income streams you'll have in the first half of the tourney.

3.) If you're raising someone off their big blind, only raise one notch (Y only, no RB). They will often fold, but if they call, they would have called for more money anyway, so that's the most thrifty move. If they start calling often, bump it once or twice more often, then get back to this level of raising.

4.) Look for whipsaw opportunities. Annoyingly, the AI doesn't often make large outright bets; you have to raise then re-raise, then re-raise, etc etc. Chances are sometime when you're trying to steal the blind, you'll get called and the flop will hit a two pair for you or something nice. In that case, check, the AI will ALWAYS bet it, and then re-raise back. Answer all re-raises with one of your own, and you should land a huge pot.

5.) In case you find yourself in a regular betting pot with the AI, note the amounts they choose to bet (proportional to the pot) and whether their bets are ascending or descending. The more the AI likes their hand, the more money they will bet, regardless of situation. For example, if they've got an amazing hand, they will have no problem completely overbuying the pot. The reverse is also true though. Often you will see a little 200 squeaker bet which you may consider challenging. Re-raise it one, and if the AI bets the same 200, move in for the kill. If the AI raises their re-raise to 400 or higher, FOLD.

Be aware that you can control the time (and thereby the blind amounts) by sitting AFK for a little while and letting the clock run. I wouldn't recommend it in the beginning of the game since you want players eliminated before the blinds get too big. However, when you get down to 1:1, it may be in your best interest to have the blind amounts come up so you can put more pressure on the AI's blinds.

Above all else, let the AI dig their own grave. You will go bankrupt if you try to run the table and push out others. Stay out of the limelight, work the system, and a good whipsaw pot or two will more than do the job.
