The Poker Meister #55

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 Pot Limit Hold'em - 9 players
The Official Hand History Converter

UTG: $16.25
UTG+1: $46.40
UTG+2: $56.65
MP1: $29.50
MP2: $39.25
Hero (CO): $93.80
BTN: $55.45
SB: $25.85
BB: $38.35

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is CO with 9s Js
UTG calls $0.50, 2 folds, MP1 raises to $2.25, 1 fold, Hero calls $2.25, 4 folds

Flop: ($5.75) Qh Tc 2s (2 players)
MP1 bets $3.25, Hero calls $3.25
I know exactly what he has: AK. I *KNOW* if a K hits, it's going to be stackage time.

Turn: ($12.25) Ah (2 players)
MP1 bets $8.25, Hero calls $8.25
I think this is a bad call, being that there is $16 behind. I likely should have folded.

River: ($28.75) 8c (2 players)
MP1 checks, Hero bets $15.75, MP1 calls $15.75 all in
But it's the Poker Meister, damnit! It always gets there! I'm actually surprised to see him check; it concerned me for a second that he would be able to lay down the nut pair. But alas, I pick up a good pot with J9 sooted!

Final Pot: $60.25
MP1 mucks Kd Ad
Hero shows 9s Js (a straight, Queen high)
Hero wins $57.25
(Rake: $3.00)


  1. Yes, results not decisions is what counts. ;-)

    I don't even like the preflop call.

  2. Will -

    J9 is the nuts. No if's and's or but's about it. If you've ready my blog long enough, I make FAR more money with J9s than its theoretical value. In theory, I should be folding J9s every time, unless there's a multi-way pot brewing. However, I raise an unopened pot and overcall a raised pot. Somehow, I am very profitable with the hand.
