Accidently called a re-raise, put me all-in with A6 off for $180 pot and hit full house on flop.

Very lucky and happy.

The maximum has been $ 4 in a micro-limit table, it turns out that the table was by color and I had AQ and my rival KJ
it was an excellent hand.
It has happened to me several times.
winning and losing:D

"Bad cards" like 7 2 are also absolutely perfect for going all-in in cardchat games aswell ;)

I don't play with bad cards. In most cases, playing with junk leads to losses.

I cracked aces with K/4 once for a lot of money. I have cracked QQ with 2/4 for a lot of money. 7/10, another 1000+ pot

Sometimes it's not what you have but what your opponent has and if you know dont they dont have much and wont call a certain amount then you should bet it.

I once called a big 5 bet preflop with 55 . Half the table went all in preflop. The rest of the table went all in after the turn. I hit a 5 on the flop and the other 5 for quads on the turn. I was chip leader pre hand so I KO all the players on the table. I started with $40 dollars and cashed out a bit over $1,300.

Dont heads up kinda mean that you literally have 50% chance of winning no-matter what cards you may actually have :hmmmm2:

Also this thread shows perfectly that for some people even certain cards which (preflop) have slightly bigger chance for straight are still considered as "bad cards" lol :dontknow:

98s against AA and KK in one hand by making a flush. This win brought me into the money, winning at least 16$ ^^

One of my most bizarre hand's I have won was on-line, I was folding hand after hand in a game and got talking to another player, who had the same problem, he Said "He wished he could get a playable hand" and I replied "Yes, same here, I am sick of being dealt 7/2 every other hand".
Just as I sent the message I was dealt 7/2 of Clubs on the BB and even posted the message "Oh look 7/2 AGAIN!"
There were only 2 other players who limped into the hand so I checked, Flop came 3 Club cards and knowing I could be beaten by a simple 8 high flush I checked, one of the limper's bet half pot, the other called and after some thought I came along for the ride.
Turn card gave us a Diamond, so I checked again, first limper bet again half pot 2nd called so I called again not knowing what anyone else had. River dropped a Heart card which could have given someone a straight, but I thought if someone held a bigger flush I was still in trouble.
I checked the River and the 1st limper bet out again half pot 2nd now folded, so after some deliberation I sent a message to the other player,"You either have me beat or not" I shoved all-in with my 7/2 Flush and he called with a straight.
The player I had been talking to before the hand sent (LOL and NH) messages and I said "I told him I only had 7/2.
This is why I love playing Poker, for the fun of the game,

When the fun Stops, STOP!

i dont remember a particular hand but when i am in position i sometimes call with junk and you can hit really big with it . for example when i know someone has AA-QQ and i am on the button i call with lets say 7-4o and when i hit big i get a lot if not all of his money or stack

I had someone limp AA in EP in a tournament when I was in the BB with 63o, their limping triggered many more limpers and I think 3/4 of the table must have limped in by the time I checked.

The flop was 333 and I don't remember the exact details of the rest of the hand, but I do remember that I won a massive pot because two other players also had pocket pairs and there were multiple all-ins by the time we went to a showdown.

That's the risk you take when you limp with AA, don't get mad if somebody crushes them because you let them see a cheap flop.
