Subject: Live hand I saw yesterday that made me laugh
So I was playing a LITTLE tourney yesterday ($28 buy in $2k guarantee,
only 93 entrants). My first table I was at the same table as my
girlfriend's nephew (he's the tightest playing mofo I've ever met so I
won't play a hand with him, but that's an aside).

Anyway, blinds are 50/100, average stack still around 3000. Nephew limps
UTG, and like 4 more limpers after him, the blinds limped/checked. Flop
AKK. Check around (lol, nobody has an A?). Turn 5. Nephew bets 500, 1
caller. River 5. Nephew throws out 2500. I put him squarely on a K. He
didn't raise pre, so no AK. Anyway, the only other remaining player
agonizes for a couple minutes, and finally calls (leaving himself with
200). So nephew turns over 55 for runner runner quads. Other guy turns
over A6o. WTF? How does an A call with that board (AKK55).?

Yup, when there's two pair on the board and the unpaired board card
pairs one in your hand you are often FUCKED. I call it 3 pairs misery.
McFly should have jammed on the flop and even then he's got huge kicker
problems.
