Poker :: The rare triple up in a cash game (aka Snowmen are gold)
  submitted on March 29, 2008, 11:38 PM


A loose call by me preflop considering I'm in the SB, but the aggro donks I was up against made it all worth it in the end.

coachny shows a pair of Threes

I thought it was pretty obvious that there was an overpair out there. The flush draw also makes some sense, although the bet out on the turn after getting raised on the flop seems stupid and basically forces him to call after the two pushes. Not to mention how awesome Th Kh is. I checked the flop since it most likely didn't hit anyone and I wanted to keep everyone in the hand, but I guess it didn't really matter.
