this is from the other thread, I knew my 22 was no good preflop here but also knew if I hit the 2 I would stack the player.

when hees reraise is about 1/10 of your stack its a call given that the dude is not very aggressive/making alot of movers(then hell just fold on the flop with alot of hands making your setvalue less)
wp i proably would have just limped, but with your stacks i guess raising is good too. Would have been diffrent if your stacks wasnt so deep tough, woulda sucked to get raised of the deuces there.

final tabled as a medium stack, got down to 6 and hadnt gotten a hand yet and was short stack. Pushing in position with K9 got called by AT and I didnt improve. Won about $55 on $5 investment not great but ok.

hey, i want to say sorry about the other day, i was in a bad mood, and shouldn't have acted that way. i looked back at it and i can see you were just messing around. i like this forum and i don't want to make enemies, especially over something stupid.

i was thinking of starting another thread based on dorkus's alien post about who can come up with the most outrageous poker hand ever played. aliens included.
