This One is For Yoda

you should post a hand where you totally obliterate someone.

like they triple donk and you triple raise for thin value and they pay your AA off with TPTK.

Admittedly this is not thin value per say, but you have to admit that by the time I cap the turn it's a little curious as to what's going on here.

I would also like to add a rant. CBS is awful. I DVR'ed 3 hours of coverage this afternoon and upon getting back from the beach was looking forward to getting to see at least a fair bit of the Pitt Xavier game. I saw the first 5 minutes, before any other game was on, minutes 19 to 17 of the second half, and seconds 6.9 to .4. That's right, not only did they basically not show the entire game in favor of letting me watch Duke beat the bejesus out of Cal, they cut away from the game with .4 seconds left and Pitt about to inbound the ball from under their own hoop down by 3 to show me the final 30 seconds of a 20 point blowout with all the scrub seniors on the floor.

Of course he has to jam the flop and turn, he has the nut no pair:) Did you expect to see 99 when he finally just called the river?

At least here in Syracuse we got to see that whole game, but watching another Big East team go down in flames was no fun.

I had no idea what to expect. I'd basically ruled out the possibility of him being ahead on the flop/turn since he'd called preflop (he was a laggy preflop guy, there was just no way he'd limp in with 99), so on the river I actually guess I was expecting to see the old ace deuce.

Did he really bet/call the river with just the nut no-pair?

Obviously, you must have the king-high flush draw and he was betting the river to induce your river bluff raise. Where do you find players like this? I thought they had all dried up by now . .

that's not owning someone's soul like i requested!

that's finding a guy who hates money and handing it to someone who would gladly help the guy out with the nuts.

more A-high UI calldowns! thin AK UI v-bets! river sexies! and the awe inspiring trifecta!
