I was sitting on the button in a local tourney with pocket queens one time. after a modest pre-flop raise both blinds stayed in. flop came Q-Q-2. small blind quickly went all-in and big blind went all-in just as quickly. it took me the longest time to call because I could not have asked for a better way for that to go. one had pocket jacks and the other pocket aces

I don't care what your excuse is. You should have been drawn and quartered for slow rolling quads.

The aces only being 96% to win reminds me that a lot of poker odds are not intuitive.

How so? The middle pair of Kings could have put together a flush that would have won the hand.

The odds of putting together a flush using four board cards, or getting 9-K straight with only the K in hand, is apparently 4%. That's higher than it feels like it should be.

I won a (recreational) beach tournament with my friends in 90° heat today.
Any other sporting occasions worth mentioning happening today? 8-) :wink:

I get to play my final regular season Wiffle series this year in 90+ degree heat. And that series is basically meaningless as we are essentially already locked in to our playoff matchup.

My self-cred as a real soccer fan took a hit today, because I forgot completely about the world cup final until I had slept through it.
