This will be forever known as the craziest hand ever......

Thanks for the comments for the birth of my daughter last week everybody. I flamed out of the TOC to none other than cmitch. I got a huge amount of flack for chopping at the end of M.A.T.H. back in late April. I won a couple of weeks before that and I was having some trouble at home when we were heads up. I took the quick chop and much to my chagrin....got knocked out by the guy I chopped with. Nothing crazy....I had pocket 10's and he had pocket Q's and he read me right. I was trying to chip up there for a run a the final table. Much respect to cmitch...he is a formidable player whether it is cash or tournament. I'm sure that this made some people happy about their prediction/warning coming to fruition. I guess I'll never live the 'chop' down. If the same situation comes again....then guess what...I'll chop again because family>poker.

This hand was in the blogger 'Big Game' and ended the BBT3. After I river'd the win here I was shocked. I thought I was against another set and a small flush draw. As you can see I was crushed at the flop and was against a high percentage (nut flush) draw! Not to worry though....my aces got cracked later to the eventual winner of tournaments Kings......

I hope nobody takes issue with the publishing of online names...no offense intended.....

Two set-up hands and a nut flush draw (which no blogger ever folds) made for one heck of a finish. Nice to be on the good side of one of those.
