Default embarrassing, but has a happy ending!

I don't know what got into me with this hand. There was so much on the board that when I was faced with a big raise I didn't want to get outplayed.

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to mr blonde [2c 2d]
fitz1384 calls $0.50
chauncy100 folds
mr blonde calls $0.50
akwheel raises to $2
xAAMx calls $2
JKCompton folds
CrankNDaPot folds
Ende444 folds
beckyblackjack folds
fitz1384 calls $1.50
mr blonde calls $1.50


*** FLOP *** [2h 3s Ah]
fitz1384 checks
akwheel bets $7
xAAMx raises to $14
fitz1384 calls $14
mr blonde raises to $43.50, and is all in
akwheel calls $21.30, and is all in
xAAMx raises to $48.55, and is all in
fitz1384 calls $23.50, and is all in

The first thing I though with this flop was I'm behind I was sure the re-raiser had 54 or nothing, someone had top pair and someone must have had a flush draw.

xAAMx shows [3d 3h]
fitz1384 shows [Th Kh]
mr blonde shows [2c 2d]
akwheel shows [Ad Ks]
Uncalled bet of $5.05 returned to xAAMx

*** TURN *** [2h 3s Ah] [2s]
*** RIVER *** [2h 3s Ah 2s] [9c]

xAAMx shows a full house, Threes full of Twos
mr blonde shows four of a kind, Twos
mr blonde wins side pot #2 ($12) with four of a kind, Twos
fitz1384 shows a pair of Twos
mr blonde wins side pot #1 ($27.60) with four of a kind, Twos
akwheel shows two pair, Aces and Twos
mr blonde wins the main pot ($118.95) with four of a kind, Twos
akwheel is sitting out
fitz1384 is sitting out

The thing is that I never push, unless I have the absolute nuts and I know I'll get a call. I'll call an Allin against a short stack when I'm pretty sure I could have the best of it or an excellent draw. It was just one of those times where I actually thought about it before my turn and figured I'll end up with one caller and a shit load of money in the pot.

With this hand I just had a gut feeling that nobody had 54, I knew it was possible and I knew I was probably beat with the 5 high str8 but that was the hand I was worried about. I was thinking what are the odds that someone is hoding that one single hand. Never even crossed my mind that I could be facing a bigger set.

I decided to go allin because I just didn't want to get outplayed on the turn if I didn't improve. I think it was a dumb move and makes me look somewhat like an idiot but I had to post this.

If you're an idiot I am a moron because I am all in there 99.9% of the time and the 0.1% when I am not is when I have coincedentally passed out drunk.

Hear hear. If you're going to play a pair and hit a set, and your money is not in there, then I'll quit now.

That was some serious result oriented thinking Mr. Blonde.

I wonder if you would have tought this was a bad move if the guy with 33 had A3 ?

If you still have chips left after set over set , then someone was playing weak tight.

Looks pretty standard to me, no need to feel embarrassed at all. The guy who flopped a set of three much have felt like garbage after that hand though.

Well, he had more than 1 out against him at least.

NH Mr. Blonde, not much you can do there unless someone shoves in front of you and you're sure they have a set or straight, and that certainly wasn't the case.

I would have felt better if he had A3, the more I think about it I guess it was more of an aggressive play than a bad one. I never once thought someone had a bigger set, but I thought if I was beat it was 54, and in that case I had enough outs to push.

The guy with 33 actually took the beat pretty well, but I'm sure he was motherf---king at his computer...lol

This is the conversation with me and him after the hand.

mr blonde: your 33 scared me
xAAMx: oh iwas like no heart
xAAMx: then i saw the 2
xAAMx: was yes... then i was like siht
