Nice call, Eeyore.

Full Tilt Poker Game #_: $10 + $1 Sit & Go (_), Table 1 - 50/100 - No Limit Hold'em - 2:41:17 ET - 2007/09/17
Seat 3: (2,132)
Seat 4: villain (4,208)
Seat 6: hero (2,660)
hero posts the small blind of 50
Seat 3 posts the big blind of 100
The button is in seat #4
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to hero [?? ??]

Let's keep my hand a secret for now. In fact, let's play it from the other perspective: The villain has [4h 4s]

villain raises to 200
hero raises to 700
Seat 3 folds
villain calls 500
*** FLOP *** [8d Jh Th]
hero bets 1,960, and is all in

Now. Hands up if you think that his pocket 4s are good.

My range of hands at this point include such hits as AT, AJ, perhaps even A8, not to mention every pocket pair north of tens. 79 and Q9 are perhaps a stretch, but we are 3 handed at this point. Maybe I have 8x of hearts. Maybe I just have a flush draw, but if I hit it, the villain is down to about a thousand chips or so, so it may not bust him, but it puts him in a pretty bad place.

Still like those 4s?

villain calls 1,960
hero shows [Ah Kc]
villain shows [4h 4s]
*** TURN *** [8d Jh Th] [3c]
*** RIVER *** [8d Jh Th 3c] [3s]
hero shows a pair of Threes
villain shows two pair, Fours and Threes
villain wins the pot (5,420) with two pair, Fours and Threes
hero stands up
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 5,420 | Rake 0
Board: [8d Jh Th 3c 3s]
Seat 3: (big blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 4: villain (button) showed [4h 4s] and won (5,420) with two pair, Fours and Threes
Seat 6: hero (small blind) showed [Ah Kc] and lost with a pair of Threes
