Default Rollercoaster Hand

I'm playing Hold'em with 4 friends a few nights ago...and doing pretty well. The deal comes and I'm holding Ace/10 hearts. The player before me goes all in pre-flop, and now the bet is to me.

Before this hand, the guy that just went all in had gone in several times (I think six) before pre-flop with nothing too good in his pocket. Each of the times, however, he had won by getting lucky on the flop. After winning, he'd slowly lose a good portion of his stack before going all-in again...and doubling up. With that in mind, I quickly called his $2.10 bet (we're college's a lot of money to us ;) ).

Everyone else folded and we flipped our cards. He's got a 4/5 diamonds. At this point, I'm really confident that I'm going to be the one to make him pay for going all-in on nothing.

The first card of the flop comes, a 5. When I see this, I completely lose all confidence in my once-superior hand. Of course, I still have 4 cards to hit I wait for the next card.

The second card of the flop is another 5. Seeing this completely destroys any hope that I had previously had at winning the hand. I mean...sure, there's a chance that I'll come back...but it's certainly not looking pretty for me at the moment.

The third card comes, and it's an Ace. Of course, I like seeing the ace...but I'm thinking to myself that it's too little, too it's going to be tough to beat his set of 5's...

Next, the turn comes in the form of another ace. God Bless America. This gives me a full house, aces over 5's, and basically destroys any chance that he has. He throws his hat on the ground in disgust and I get ready to rake in his chips...

...but there's still the last card. The dealer shows the river: the last 5. Damn. He hits on a four of a kind to beat my aces full of 5's. Even though I didn't come out with that pot...I'd have to say that it's easily my most memorable poker hand to date. Absolutely amazing.
