Still reeling about this one, but have to laugh as well. Such a silly game this NLHE is! We play a micro cash game, and all start with $10 in chips with .5/.10 blinds. We used to play .50/$1 so our regulars respect hands and raises, and the play is not much different than if it were at higher stakes. I've worked my way to about $45 by playing some of my best poker in many weeks. I'm patient, aggressive in the right spots, and willing to risk my stack several times and it pays me off. So I'm on the button , with a and there are 10 players at our full table. Tasty little flop worth hand, but not worth too much of a raise, especially since I'm last to act. Someone in an early seat raises it to .40 and oddly enough there are 5 callers before it comes back to me. I make the call the SB folds, and the BB calls. I then sit back and watch the flop magically unfold: Nice. I'm sitting back and waiting to see what happens. There is only about $3 in the pot, and I'm trying to figure out how to get squeak as much out of this flop as possible. One of the early players makes a pot sized bet. Most of the other callers fold except one, and I make the flat call. There is probably about $12 in the pot now. The turn brings. Perfect. With only 3 players left, I again contemplate how to build the pot up on this street, the table breaks open with betting. Of the two remaining active players, the early seat makes a push all in for about $17. We now have around $30 in the pot. Much to my surprise the middle player pushes all in, over the top for about $30 trying to get me out of the hand and isolate against player 1. I stall for a moment, check my cards a few times, and push all of my chips in as well, pretending that I've got a hard decision to make. The side pots are established, and I actually end up with about $4 back in my stack. I've got them both covered, and now stand to rake down about a $100 pot, and I didn't even have to take the chance of scaring anyone off with a lead out bet. We decide to flip our cards before the river, tournament style, since betting is over between all 3 players. I slow roll my cards, and everyone shrinks back with a collective, "Oh crap." Middle player shows: Late player shows: With my flopped house, I can practically taste the cash on the table. Who wants to guess what the river brought? You guessed it. I sit stunned for a moment, and then bust out laughing. Gaaaaaa! Thank you for your time, I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming. EDIT: I mixed up a few cards after calling someone else that was in the hand.
