Another great one

Full Tilt Poker Game #_: $10 + $1 Sit & Go (_), Table 1 - 20/40 - No Limit Hold'em - 21:01:41 ET - 2007/09/13
Seat 1: (1,395)
Seat 2: (1,275)
Seat 3: (1,415), is sitting out
Seat 4: (1,020)
Seat 5: (1,440)
Seat 6: (1,815)
Seat 7: hero (1,385)
Seat 8: (1,980)
Seat 9: villain (1,775)
Seat 3 posts the small blind of 20
Seat 4 posts the big blind of 40
The button is in seat #2
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to hero [5s 5c]
Seat 5 folds
Seat 6 folds
hero calls 40
Seat 8 folds
villain raises to 130
Seat 1 folds
Seat 2 folds
Seat 3 folds
Seat 4 calls 90
hero calls 90

What do we always say about small pocket pairs? Get in cheap and try for a set (that means limp-call). Get out if you miss.

*** FLOP *** [5h Kd 5d]


Someone please, please have a king!

Seat 4 checks
hero checks
villain bets 300


Seat 4 folds
hero calls 300
*** TURN *** [5h Kd 5d] [4h]
hero checks
villain bets 750

And there it is. He's pot committed now - that is, my all-in re-raise is too small for him to fold.

hero raises to 955, and is all in
villain calls 205
hero shows [5s 5c]
villain shows [Ac Ad]


Flops that have a pair generally miss everybody, so it's easy to see how that flop would have made him feel good. He was only losing to a 5 - which would be a hand unlikely to call a raise out of position, or pocket kings - which you'd expect someone to re-raise. Just about the only hand he could reasonably have put me on that he was losing to was pocket 5s. And you just can't do anything about that.

*** RIVER *** [5h Kd 5d 4h] [Th]
hero shows four of a kind, Fives
villain shows two pair, Aces and Fives
hero wins the pot (2,920) with four of a kind, Fives
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 2,920 | Rake 0
