While playing $2/$5 NL at the Casino, bought in for the max of $300 - I played so tight it was ridiculous, then came three hands in the span of a half hour (my session was only 4 hours).
The first was my JJ hitting a set on the flop and another guy with more chips than me hitting second set. I doubled up to $800.
Then two hands later I get AA - mid position guy raises to $20, guy to my right raises it to $50, so I re-raise him to $150 other guy goes all in, for his last $400, I start in on the guy to my right, asking him what I would raise that much with, etc... 'cause I really don't want more than one caller against my AA. I get him to fold AK - Other guy had 8-6os??!? I call and the flop comes K-Q-K !! Thank god the guy to my right folded. And now I am up $1200.
The very next hand, the guy beside me is pissed because he folded what would have been the winning hand. I am on the button now and have 22, guy raises in early position to $20, all in, three callers, including the guy to my right so I call. Flop is Q - 4 - 4, I bet $20, everyone folds except guy to my right who raises it to $50, I think he is steaming and call his raise. Next card is a two !! I now have a boat. Now I am hoping he has a 4 and he leads out for $200, I say all in and he calls !! The pot is $2000 and my boat holds up against his A-4.
AFter four hours I walked out of the casino up $2100 from a $2/$5 game.
