Was playin a pub game $10 entry, down to the final table, I've got an average stack, probably coming 3rd or 4th out of 8. I looked down to see 3♦ 7♦ with the button directly to my left. Blinds had just gone up and I thought I'd try and see a flop with these low suited cards, seeing as though most others on the table were playing pretty textbook poker. After limping, the BB raised to 2.5x the BB, everyone got out of the way and the button and SB had folded. I put him on 2 very high cards AK, AQ or a smaller pocket pair, somewhere between 8's and Q's. Made the call anyway to represent a nice hand and a higher ability to squeeze him out on the flop. Anyway, the flop came 5♦ J♣ 6♦. Not a bad flop for me, a lot of outs and possibility of havin the nuts. I was n't too surprised to see him come out with a bet nearly twice the size of the pot. I stalled for about 90 seconds and called. 6♠ on the turn and it was checked to me. A pair on the board wasn't really what I wanted to see with a flush, straight and straight flush draw but I bet out for about 3/4 of the pot. I got a lightning quick call, a little suspicious, into the river we go. The MONEY CARD!!! 4♦!!! Makes my straight flush. I didn't have to put my chips in, he pushed before me, so I put him on the ace high flush but it wasn't to be, he was holding J♠ J♥. Took down a massive pot and the chiplead, ended up coming 2nd after I caught a runner runner beat heads up. Don't you just love it when the hand falls into place so perfectly?!
