Poker :: Quality Heads Up play...
  submitted on July 16, 2007, 5:31 PM


Okay, so I jumped in another Tier 1 Token HU match. This is literally the second hand...

Full Tilt Poker Game #2966158150: Tier One $13+$0.75 Sit & Go (22642756), Table 1 - 10/20 - No Limit Hold'em - 17:22:23 ET - 2007/07/16
Seat 1: Mike_Maloney (1,520)
Seat 2: MEH93344 (1,480)
Mike_Maloney posts the small blind of 10
MEH93344 posts the big blind of 20
The button is in seat #1
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Mike_Maloney [Th 9h]
Mike_Maloney raises to 50 (Certainly a hand worth raising up with position)
MEH93344 calls 30
*** FLOP *** [6h Kd 7c]
MEH93344 checks
Mike_Maloney bets 65 (Gutshot and two possible live cards, c-bet sounds good)
MEH93344 calls 65
*** TURN *** [6h Kd 7c] [2s]
MEH93344 checks
Mike_Maloney checks (Not much going for me here, I'll take a free card)
*** RIVER *** [6h Kd 7c 2s] [8d] (YAHTZEE!)
MEH93344 bets 230 (Ah yes, value bet against someone with the nutz)
Mike_Maloney raises to 700 (Representing da nutz)
MEH93344 raises to 1,170 (Poor bastard)
Mike_Maloney raises to 1,405, and is all in
MEH93344 calls 195, and is all in
Uncalled bet of 40 returned to Mike_Maloney
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Mike_Maloney shows [Th 9h] a straight, Ten high
MEH93344 mucks
Mike_Maloney wins the pot (2,960) with a straight, Ten high
MEH93344 stands up
Mike_Maloney stands up
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 2,960 | Rake 0
Board: [6h Kd 7c 2s 8d]
Seat 1: Mike_Maloney (small blind) showed [Th 9h] and won (2,960) with a straight, Ten high
Seat 2: MEH93344 (big blind) mucked [5s 9c] - a straight, Nine high (Note to self: The second nuts is NOT da nutz)

I mean, it's a tough break and all, but do you really need to go broke on the second hand of a HU matchup with the second nutz? Especially considering it's easily possible that I was holding 10-9. I got a nice '#@$!% you' in the chat window afterwards for my efforts. lol.
