A hand I played tonight to illustrate that the big overbet shove is right on certain boards when you hold the nuts.
It's HU so the dynamic is a little different but you'll get the idea.

Basically I get to the river here after flopping the world with very little in the pot, which sucks. I can't always count on my opponent raising with a 7 so I shove $96 into a $7 pot because I know he'll pay off with a 7. These huge bets don't work often but they don't have to because when they do they make lots of $$.
