Poker :: Okay, flopped full houses ocassionally win
  submitted on August 27, 2007, 10:22 PM


Another night of profitable (so far) cash game play for me. I also finally won a big pot, I think this is the biggest pot I've won at a cash game before (Sorry, it's not 4 or 5 digits like this guy):

FullTiltPoker Game #3384258451: Table Gemstone - $0.50/$1 - No Limit Hold'em - 21:11:49 ET - 2007/08/27
Seat 1: El Nino 1 ($98.50)
Seat 2: Mike_Maloney ($87)
Seat 3: amer29 ($214.75)
Seat 4: veritech100 ($103.55)
Seat 5: LKW247 ($39)
Seat 6: kicker787 ($108.45), is sitting out
Seat 7: EWillie ($100)
Seat 8: acct78703 ($23.40)
Seat 9: GREATMAN222 ($101.70)
Mike_Maloney posts the small blind of $0.50
amer29 posts the big blind of $1
The button is in seat #1
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Mike_Maloney [Kh Jd]
veritech100 folds
LKW247 folds
EWillie folds
acct78703 folds
GREATMAN222 folds
El Nino 1 calls $1
Mike_Maloney calls $0.50
(Always a nice hand to see the flop with cheaply, too bad I don't have position.)
amer29 checks
*** FLOP *** [Kd Kc Jh]
(Nothing that flopping the nuts can't overcome)
Mike_Maloney checks
amer29 checks
El Nino 1 bets $3
Mike_Maloney calls $3
amer29 folds
*** TURN *** [Kd Kc Jh] [3c]
Mike_Maloney checks
(I checked here to see if he was going to bet out. If he checks behind, I'm probably not going to get much out of him.)
El Nino 1 bets $9
Mike_Maloney calls $9
*** RIVER *** [Kd Kc Jh 3c] [4s]
Mike_Maloney checks
(So, my thought process here is that he bet hard on the flop and on the turn. If he's been firing blanks, he's going to probably fold if I bet, which really won't net me anything. So it's basically the same as checking it down. However, if he has a hand, I think it's in my best interest to check-raise. If I throw out a bet, he might just call it. I'd rather take the chance of him betting out so I can raise and open up the possibility of a double up)
El Nino 1 bets $27
Mike_Maloney raises to $74, and is all in
El Nino 1 calls $47
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Mike_Maloney shows [Kh Jd] a full house, Kings full of Jacks
El Nino 1 mucks
Mike_Maloney wins the pot ($172) with a full house, Kings full of Jacks
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $175 | Rake $3
Board: [Kd Kc Jh 3c 4s]
Seat 1: El Nino 1 (button) mucked [3d 3h] - a full house, Threes full of Kings
Seat 2: Mike_Maloney (small blind) showed [Kh Jd] and won ($172) with a full house, Kings full of Jacks
Seat 3: amer29 (big blind) folded on the Flop
Seat 4: veritech100 didn't bet (folded)
Seat 5: LKW247 didn't bet (folded)
Seat 6: kicker787 is sitting out
Seat 7: EWillie didn't bet (folded)
Seat 8: acct78703 didn't bet (folded)
Seat 9: GREATMAN222 didn't bet (folded)


I think I played that okay. I question myself a lot when I play out of position, but I liked my thought process. Of course, in the time it took me to type this up, I took a nice hit when I was outflushed by someone in the big blind. Sigh...
