Seat 4: drraz folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 5: 23skidoo showed [Ad Jh] and won (1437) with a pair of Aces

I really was lost when the queen hit here. S.t.B was playing like mid-pairs here. When he raises my 350 bet, I have 500 left and no chance in my mind. I think I played my hand like A(KJQ), so I'm either dead to a kicker or a set in my mind. I eventually make the crying call hoping he's betting a missed set or Ax. I think I got really lucky this hand.

I had to laugh here:
S.t.B said, "you can breathe now"
23skidoo said, "ugh"

Presto here was awesome. I wanted GScott out of the hand preflop, dunno why he calls with A8o here, but I'm glad he did and my set was well hidden.

Last one.

Miami Don was stealing even more often than I was. I laid down AK against him just a few hands prior. He told me he had 33.

First of all, I knew I wanted to see a flop here, if any hi cards come out, I can be done and conserve. Anything else I will go to war against most likely. Miami thought I was capable of laying down a big pair there or he thought I was drawing. Either way, I felt fairly sure this was my hand from the beginning. I don't think I misplayed the Jacks at all. Don wasn't so sure.

MiamiDon said, "you got me skidoo"
MiamiDon said, "although ballsy call with only JJ"

I got a big pot with a flopped nut flush and another when I 2-paired my JT.

Eventually Don caught back up and took Sox out, when we got even heads up, he offered a deal and I took it. It was late enough for me. We actually played pretty hard for a few hands, him taking on the AG roll again, whittling me down. I evened up again w/AQ on a scary board, but I could never get a lead on the DON. I made a stand with a flopped 2-pair waffles hand(24o) vs a flopped heart flush....oh well.

Nice game Ski.

I really thought on that hand you might have thought I had QQ, KK, or AA. I was so wrong.

After thinking about it, with so many undercards on the flop, I guess you had me on something less than your JJ so it was a no brainer call.

You and I both did do a great job of stealing on that tight table though.

It was fun. You were a tough opponent and we had so tough battles.

Glad we could chop in the end.
