Board: [ 6h 7d Ks 7h 4h ]
Seat 1: balance $26.15, sits out
Seat 2: balance $26.85, lost $0.50 (folded)
Seat 3: balance $22.50, lost $0.50 (folded)
Seat 4: balance $54.90, didn't bet (folded)
Seat 5: balance $25, didn't bet (folded)
Seat 6 me: balance $46.85, bet $9, collected $18.60, net +$9.60 [ 5h 3h ] [ a straight flush, seven high -- 7h,6h,5h,4h,3h ]
Seat 7: balance $18.10, didn't bet (folded)
Seat 8: balance $0, lost $8.55 [ Kc Kd ] [ a full house, Kings full of sevens -- Kc,Kd,Ks,7d,7h ]
Seat 9: balance $57.90, lost $0.50 (folded)
Seat 10: balance $14.75, lost $0.50 (folded)

First, the guy had pocket kings and limps in? Next, he flops a set and checks? Gets the boat on the turn and bets $.50?

What a way to get my first str8 flush. I imagine it won't be as easy next time. I only wish he had had more money.

i personally think limping with 35h is okay (only in NL though), if you are sure no one is going to raise. cos no one will suspect you have anything that crappy . but i think slowplaying is risky. i got burnt more than my fair share slowplaying. esp with a good hand pre flop. once i had 56h and limp in preflop. flopped two pair, with flush and straight draw, so i bet pot (it was PL), i want to take it down on flop, dont want them to hit straight or flush. two people called. next card completes the flush and straight, the straight bets $3 (i dont know whether he really has it, cos he folded on the river), i know i am doomed, but i had my boat chance and i know if i hit, i make big money. so i called and so does the other guy. and river brings a 5, four flush on board. so i bet pot again (looks so much like a bluff ) and nut flushed called all-in without thinking, the supposed straight folds. (i dont think i can fold the nut flush too but...) and i took down a huge pot. moral of the story, unless you have the absolute nut, bet pot, earn less=win more in the long term.

Bad beats can only really occur in NL when you slowplay.

As demonstrated by the poor fella who had kings.
