Not to be all up in your business BUUUUTTT....why didn't you three bet the 2nd nuts on the turn? At first I thought it was because you were going to unleash your fury on the river....but you didn't? The call on the river got you 2 overcalls it looks like but a raise on the turn probably would have kept everyone around for another bet, or at best a cap if zam070 decides to do that. I also now see calling on the river may have been in hops of zam070 raising? I just think you left some bets on the table.

I like the new layout - TripJax is da man. (I stoled some ideas from him also - templates, etc.)

Okay, so thanks for all of the positive compliments. I'd like to address Trauma's comment. You see, Trauma, once, at a tourney, I had 48o and hit the straight. Someone bet, I re-raised and another player re-reraised. By the turn we were all in. I was facing an under-straight and the 98 over straight, thereby losing the tourney.

In this hand, I had the 2nd nuts. I was worried about the overpair because of the two cold-callers. Maybe I shouldn't have been, but I figured there was more of a benefit for calling on the river. Here is the reason why.

On the turn we had one bettor/caller, me (raiser), and two cold-callers of 2 bets. On the river, the bettor/caller bet. If I raise, the bettor would have called, but the two cold-callers? I didn't know what they had. A raise by me could've pushed them off of their hands, making me one bet from the bettor but losing two from the callers. Now, the cold callers had a reason to cold call if they had the nuts, so I figured raising might not be good because if they did have it, i'd lose an extra bet (instead of check calling, I'd have bet, called a re-raise).

But in the end, I was scared. Bottom line. So I slowed down, happy to get what I got.

Ah!

Thanks again everyone. A special thanks to Trip.
