The Poker Meister #53

Taken from the full ring tables:

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players
The Official Hand History Converter

CO: $46.20 - 66/27 @ 15 hands
Hero (BTN): $50.00
SB: $50.65
BB: $79.25
UTG: $92.05
MP: $68.00

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with Jc 9c
UTG calls $0.50, 1 fold, CO raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds, UTG calls $1
The nuts! I'm not laying down the nuts, in position, pre flop.

Flop: ($5.25) Ts 9d Js (3 players)
UTG checks, CO checks, Hero bets $5, UTG folds, CO calls $5
And of course, true to form, I flop two pair.

Turn: ($15.25) 5d (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets $15, CO calls $15
Brick; as long as he's calling, I'm going to continue betting my two pair. I put him on a draw with the Q or 8. I'm actually surprised to see him call here for a full pot bet. I just don't see a flopped set, straight or overpair acting passively like this.

River: ($45.25) Ah (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets $24.70, CO calls $24.70 all in
Not quite sure what the Ace does to him, but I want maximum value. Granted, this is a very thin bet here, because it's possible that only better hands are calling. But, this player has proven to be a donkey who is calling down. Therefore, we're close enough; let's get stacks in.

Final Pot: $94.65
CO mucks 8c Td - Wow! Middle pair + straight draw... Not exactly the hand I would expect to be stacking off here...
Hero shows Jc 9c (two pair, Jacks and Nines)
Hero wins $91.65
(Rake: $3.00)
