Quads FTW

Full Tilt Poker $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players
The Official Hand History Converter

SB: $97.85
BB: $100.00
UTG: $235.00
UTG+1: $132.85
UTG+2: $101.50
Hero (MP1): $125.85
MP2: $57.65
CO: $100.00
BTN: $147.00

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is MP1 with 2c 2d
UTG raises to $3, 2 folds, Hero calls $3, MP2 calls $3, 1 fold, BTN raises to $18, 2 folds, UTG calls $15, Hero calls $15, 1 fold
Normally, this is a dump situation.  However, UTG is capable of a wide variety of spaz plays, and BTN has been 3bet squeezing an awful lot.  BTN clearly wants to ISO the LAG, and I'm fully aware that BTN could has (at minimum) 2 overcards.  In addition, my stats are semi-LAGgy... I think I was running around a 29/20 - trying to catch the UTG in a big hand where I have the goods.  Given that justification (also the fact that both players have me covered), I make the call.  If UTG folds, it's an insta-fold for me as well.

Flop: ($58.50) 2h 9d 6c (3 players)
UTG checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $30, UTG folds, Hero raises to $107.85 all in, BTN calls $77.85
Nice nuts.  BTN is pretty sure of himself given his bet.  At this point, given his half pot lead, I'm certain I put him on a big overpair.  He's not the kind of player to lead a blank flop like this without seeking value.  When UTG folds (damnit), I raise the remaining $68 of my stack to get it in.

Turn: ($274.20) 2s (2 players - 1 is all in)
Insult to injury!

River: ($274.20) 6d (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $274.20
Hero shows 2c 2d (four of a kind, Twos)
BTN shows Kc Kh (two pair, Kings and Sixes)
Hero wins $271.20
(Rake: $3.00)

Easy game :-)
