a winning night - but carnage otherwise

Let's get that out of the way - I made a profit on the night. Goodie for me.

A few weeks ago, I was losing my mind in a blog post because some dude called a preflop raise with J2s and knocked me out. That guy is fucking Phil Ivey compared to this one.

Full Tilt Poker, $20 + $2 NL Hold'em Sit n' Go, 20/40 Blinds, 7 Players - Hand History Converter
BTN: 2,905
SB: 1,430
BB: 1,605
UTG: 3,080
UTG+1: 1,425
MP: 1,395
Hero (CO): 1,660

Pre-Flop: (60) Q A dealt to Hero (CO)
3 folds, Hero raises to 120, BTN folds, SB calls 100, BB calls 80

My read on the small blind is that he's the worst player I've ever seen. He's lost more money on Full Tilt than my motorcycle cost. I'm not even remotely kidding.

Flop: (360) 2 8 Q (3 Players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets 240, SB calls 240, BB folds

Top pair, super dry board. This bet is for value. He calls.

Turn: (840) 2 (2 Players)
SB bets 1,070 and is All-In, Hero calls 1,070

Gee, the deuce pairs and he shoves. He called a preflop raise with a 2? Really? Ace-2, I suppose it's possible. Still, this guy is awful. He could be doing this with pocket tens, or a plenty of worse queens. I have to call a horrible player with TPTK on this board. I have to. (feel free to disagree).

River: (2,980) J (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
Results: 2,980 Pot

SB showed 2 J (a full house, Twos full of Jacks) and WON 2,980 (+1,550 NET)
Hero showed Q A (two pair, Queens and Twos) and LOST (-1,430 NET)

Jack-Deuce again, not even suited this time. That's what he called my preflop raise with. Then, he floats my c-bet with bottom pair - as a 4-1 dog. The fact that he hits his 5-outer is why I'm breaking even over the past 4 months.
