This hand makes no sense to me

I wasn't involved, but I observed this hand. How does pocket 2s not go broke here? The other players went on and on about how it was such a "smart play" to not go broke there, but I can't help but think that's severe results-orientedness. I mean, wtf?

NevRcashOut obviously understands that just because you are paranoid doesn't mean that there aren't higher sets out there. Underplayednamer clearly recognizing Never to be a PT (pathologically tight) player skillfully extracted the maximum amount of chips possible. Alternate explanation, wtf? :confused: :joyman: :D

I... but I can't help but think that's severe results-orientedness. I mean, wtf?

To paraphrase Crocodile Dundee: That's not results oriented, this is results oriented:

27o should have pushed pre-flop to force out the better boats
