How not to play the hammer.

Full Tilt Poker Game #1216607240: The Mookie - Fish n Donks (8304316), Table 3 - 25/50 - No Limit Hold'em - 21:30:17 ET - 2006/11/08

Seat 3: iam23skidoo (1,565)
Seat 5: Maudie (2,428)

iam23skidoo posts the big blind of 50

Dealt to iam23skidoo [2s 7h]
Maudie raises to 200
iam23skidoo calls 150

Now, I thought about using the 'regular' hammer raise here, but I think Maudie is not stealing and has a solid hand. SO my plan here is just smooth call and bet out if the flop is blanks or scary. My plans are foiled though as this is the flop:

*** FLOP *** [7d 4d 7s]
Now I have to check since I know she will continuation bet this 'horrible' flop.

iam23skidoo checks
Maudie bets 400
iam23skidoo calls 400

Smooth call FTW!

*** TURN *** [7d 4d 7s] [7c]
DQB! thats right.... No way she can put me on 7's I'm just hoping she has a big pair.

iam23skidoo checks
Maudie checks
*** RIVER *** [7d 4d 7s 7c] [9d]
iam23skidoo bets 450

Gotta get something in the pot....maybe she puts me on the 9 or a smaller pair.

Maudie has 15 seconds left to act
Maudie raises to 1,000


iam23skidoo calls 515, and is all in

Maudie shows [Jh Js] (a full house, Sevens full of Jacks)
iam23skidoo shows [2s 7h] (four of a kind, Sevens)
iam23skidoo wins the pot (3,155) with four of a kind, Sevens

Unfortunately I could not make the chips work for me as I went out in 15th. On a good note, I got a token and used it on the HORSE tourney, which I am still hanging in right now. I need to make a token for the next Big Game and DADI X.

Also, I'll be playing in CC's inaugural Thursday game on PokerStars and you should too!!!
