Biggest Pot Ever (for cheap cheap me)
I continued to tread water at $2/$4 Hold'em last night: Won $15 at Absolute, took a break, came back and lost $16, went over to Paradise and lost $39 over a pretty long session--them's some tight tables at Paradise. Then came back to Absolute around midnight and this hand happened:

Absolute Poker 2/4 Hold'em (9 handed) converter

Preflop: LanceyH is BB with Qh, Js.

UTG calls, 1 fold, MP1 raises, 4 folds, SB calls, LanceyH calls, UTG 3-bets, MP1 caps, SB calls, LanceyH calls, UTG calls.

Flop: (17 SB) Th, Ks, 9s (4 players)

SB checks, LanceyH bets, UTG raises, MP1 3-bets, SB folds, LanceyH caps, UTG calls, MP1 calls.

Turn: (13.50 BB) 5d (3 players)

LanceyH bets
, UTG raises $5.75 (All-In), MP1 3-bets, LanceyH caps, MP1 raises, LanceyH calls.

River: (21.93 BB) 5h (3 players, 1 all-in)

LanceyH bets
, MP1 raises, LanceyH calls.

Final Pot: 25.93 BB


LanceyH shows Qh Js (straight, king high).

UTG shows Ah Ac (two pair, aces and fives).

MP1 shows Kd Qc (two pair, kings and fives).

Outcome: LanceyH wins 25.93 BB.

Nothing that skillful about flopping the nuts, and I feel like a wuss for not reraising on the river. (At that point I no longer had the nuts, and reraising on the river without the nuts is generally not smart. I feel like a wuss anyway.) My decision to call the extra 2 bets may have been too loose, but MP1 was a maniac and his preflop raises weren't getting respect from the table. He was a moron for 3-betting with King-high.

Still, it was the biggest pot I've ever won online and certainly helps the $2/$4 ledger. I won $114.75 on the session.
