Dirty Tricks at the table.

I wasn't involved in this hand, but I saw a great dirty trick that I'll need to employ someday.

Player to my left, Jason, limps from early position. A middle position player calls, as does the blinds.

Flop comes 345, two diamonds. Jason checks, middle position player bets, blinds fold. Jason calls.

Turn comes a black deuce. Check/check.

River comes the six of diamonds. Jason immediately announces, "well, I've got a straight" on the 23456 board. He thinks for a second and bets 240 into a pot of 200.

The middle position player thinks for quite awhile. Thinks/thinks/thinks, then finally calls with ace rag.

Jason flips over the king of diamonds and the jack of diamonds. "I've also got a flush" he says.
