Thanks for the stack, donk!

This was the first hand sitting down at this table. I felt like this guy was getting out of line - and I was right. He was trying to steal; I caught him red handed.

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

UTG ($11.41)
UTG+1 ($9.85)
MP1 ($3.50)
MP2 ($7.94)
CO ($4)
Button ($8.44)
SB ($3.87)
Hero (BB) ($10)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 10s, Qd
UTG bets $0.20, 6 folds, Hero calls $0.10

Flop: ($0.45) 10d, 3s, Qh (2 players)
Hero checks, UTG bets $1, Hero raises to $3, UTG calls $2
Flopped top two! Not laying this down. If UTG is betting into me, well, I'm going to raise it up. Based on his call, perhaps he actually has a legitimate hand of an overpair which I cracked.

Turn: ($6.45) 9c (2 players)
Hero bets $4.50, UTG raises to $8.21 (All-In), Hero calls $2.30 (All-In)
This 9 changes nothing, and I don't want him to hit is potential overpair without paying for it. He commits his stack and the rest is history.

River: ($20.05) Ac (2 players, 2 all-in)

Total pot: $20.05 | Rake: $1.33

Hero had 10s, Qd (two pair, Queens and tens).
UTG had 6d, Qc (one pair, Queens).

REALLY? There's nothing that beats a Q6o in this spot? COME ON DONK! You can do better than that!! Shall I go down the list of all holdings that beat your Q6o? All overpairs, AQ,KQ, QJ, QT, Q9, Q8, Q7, any set, any T3... What are you looking for to commit your entire stack?

Outcome: Hero won $18.72
