Ok….I have been reeeeeeeeally good about not spewing off about running bad for the last 6months or so. I have tried really hard to be good at it. But this hand is just too perfect:
Poker Stars $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold’em – 9 players – View hand 1014227

BB: $20.50
UTG: $26.20
UTG+1: $78.20
UTG+2: $48.35
MP1: $21.95
Hero (MP2): $20.00
CO: $34.00
BTN: $30.65
SB: $23.70

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is MP2 with A of hearts Q of hearts
1 fold, UTG+1 calls $1, UTG+2 raises to $2, 1 fold, Hero raises to $12, 5 folds, UTG+2 calls $10

Flop: ($26.50) J of hearts 3 of diamonds 3 of hearts (2 players)
UTG+2 bets $8, Hero calls $8 all in

Turn: ($42.50) J of spades (2 players – 1 is all in)

River: ($42.50) 8 of diamonds (2 players – 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $42.50
UTG+2 shows J of diamonds A of diamonds (a full house, Jacks full of Threes)
Hero shows A of hearts Q of hearts (two pair, Jacks and Threes)
UTG+2 wins $40.45
(Rake: $2.05)

The size of the pot has nothing to do with it, ldo. But villain puts in a large amount of relative stack with 3 outs, hits, I pick up 12 outs, and brick. Not even just brick, but I’m not even given a fair sweat. lol poker. Ok…that is my bitching. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
