Tonight's first 8 hands at the 10¢/25¢ table:
5♠3♠ (BB, checked to the river, fold to Q42/K/T rainbow board)
J♦5♣ (SB, folded)
K♥T♠ (button, flopped straight, split $5.60 pot with Q♥T♥ rivered stright.)
K♠5♣ (cutoff, folded)
K♠J♥ (middle position, limped and called preflop raise. Board was Q♦9♦7s/K♣/4♥; My KKQJ9 beat Q♠5♣, 9♥2♦, and J♣J♠).
A♥K♦ (middle position, lost to Q♣T♥ straight.)
A♦Q♠ (middle position, scared off the final better on the river to win $3.15 pot with A-high)
K♦K♥, my monster hand of the night. Won a $14.47 pot. Here's the details.
In fifth position (nine-handed), UTG and UTG+1 fold to me. I raise to 50¢. Johnny calls, the button calls, and the big blind calls. The flop is A♥Q♥T♠. I'm pretty sure at least one of them has an ace, so I figure I've got six outs: the four jacks and two kings. Runner-runner hearts would give me the nut flush, but that's a slim chance. Make it 6.5 outs, a 14% chance.
The big blind bets 25¢, making the pot $2.10. The pot odds are 12%, but implied odds make it worth it. So call, or raise? I can't explain why, but I raise. This was probably a bad move that turned out well. Johnny calls, the button re-raises, the big blind calls, and I call. The pot is now $5.10.
The turn is a shocking A♣. With two aces on the board, I begin to wonder if someone really does have an ace. Maybe I'm facing a flush draw. Maybe I'm facing a set of queens. Maybe a straight draw. The big blind checks, and I bet. Johnny calls, the button raises, and the three of us call.
The river, the glorious river, is K♣. I've got a full boat, and only AA, AK, AQ, or AT can beat me. I bet, get a caller, a raiser, and a caller. I re-raise, can get an all-in and two callers. My hand stands up, for KKKAA, beaing Johnny's Q6 (AAQQ6), the button's A7 (AAAKQ), and the big blind's A9 (AAAKQ).
Yeah, I got lucky. Really lucky. And ended up with my best night in two weeks.
