not 100% bad...

3 losses tonight (including the dual-click bonus loss described in the last post), but I did make one nice play.

Full Tilt Poker, $20 + $2 NL Hold'em Sit n' Go, 50/100 Blinds, 6 Players - Hand History Converter

MP: 2,545
CO: 3,095
Hero (BTN): 1,690
SB: 1,200
BB: 1,080
UTG: 3,890

Pre-Flop: (150) K A dealt to Hero (BTN)
UTG folds, MP calls 100, CO folds, Hero calls 100, SB calls 50, BB checks

Big blind was a good player, aggressive, and short on chips. I thought maybe he'd try raising the limpers with a wide range, so I just limp behind with AK, with the intention of calling his shove. He doesn't have anything shove-worthy, though, so we're three-handed to the flop.

Flop: (400) 6 K 6 (4 Players)
SB checks, BB checks, MP bets 400,

Well, can't ask more a much better flop with AK. I suppose MP could have limped with Aces, or maybe he's semibluffing with spades. Of course, this is a limped pot, so BB might wake up with a 6 and really send me to the wall, but I'm going to shove it in and pray he is six-less.

Hero raises to 1,590 and is All-In
, 2 folds, MP calls 1,190

When MP calls the all-in, I figure him for KQ/KJ. Good read.

Turn: (3,580) 8 (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
River: (3,580) 9 (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

Results: 3,580 Pot
MP showed Q K (two pair, Kings and Sixes) and LOST (-1,690 NET)
Hero showed K A (two pair, Kings and Sixes) and WON 3,580 (+1,890 NET)
