This was very, very early in a 400 player MTT. That, in and of itself, should say something about the result of this hand.

Full Tilt Poker Game #_: Turbo Fiddy (_), Table 25 - 40/80 - No Limit Hold'em - 1:21:13 ET - 2008/08/08
Seat 1: Mario (2,037)
Seat 2: (2,685)
Seat 3: (2,610)
Seat 4: hero (4,040)
Seat 5: (2,020)
Seat 6: (3,290)
Seat 7: Luigi (2,460)
Seat 8: (2,165)
Seat 9: (1,670)
Luigi posts the small blind of 40
Seat 8 posts the big blind of 80
The button is in seat #6
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to hero [Kc Jc]
Seat 9 folds
Mario raises to 280
Seat 2 folds
Seat 3 calls 280

Raised in early position and called. Bye.

hero folds
Seat 5 folds
Seat 6 folds
Luigi calls 240
Seat 8 folds
*** FLOP *** [7d 3d 6d]
Luigi checks
Mario bets 560
Seat 3 folds
Luigi calls 560
*** TURN *** [7d 3d 6d] [5c]
Luigi checks
Mario bets 1,197, and is all in

This has to be a big pair or a straight protecting himself from a diamond draw, and the other guy either has the flush or has a flush draw.

Luigi calls 1,197

Mario shows [9h Ah]
Luigi shows [Ts Jd]

Really? There are more than three hundred fifty players remaining. The tournament pays 45. I could almost see Mario representing the big hand. But what's with Luigi? He called with the jack-high flush draw. Setting aside the fact that he's likely a 3:1 dog to make his flush, who says that the jack-high is going to be the best one?

*** RIVER *** [7d 3d 6d 5c] [Qc]
Mario shows Ace Queen high
Luigi shows Queen Jack high
Mario wins the pot (4,434) with Ace Queen high
