pretty wicked cooler.

And hooray! I was on the correct side of it.

Converting hands till the cows come home
Cereus No Limit Hold'em $0.10/$0.25 - 5 players

Button: $25.25 (Hero)
SB: $44.21
BB: $31.12
UTG: $43.91
CO: $19.91

Preflop: ($0.35) Hero is Button with (5 players)
UTG calls $0.25, CO folds, Hero calls $0.25, SB calls $0.15, BB checks

UTG is a 45/11 limper, I have punished him several times to this point. His stats suggest he will fold to reraises, but he keeps calling me. I decide to change it up on the button and just call with my suited ace.

Flop: ($1.00) (4 players)
SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $0.50, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.50

Hey, nice flop! Top pair, nut flush draw. And a gutshot to go with it. Let's start betting and pot-building.

Turn: ($2.00) (2 players)

Weee! I hit my flush. Hey look, it happens to be my gutshot card also. That's pretty cool, I hit a straight and a flush at the same time....

(wait for it) ...

(sorry, it takes me awhile).

What to bet, what to bet? Let's bet small, like we're scared of the flush card...

UTG checks, Hero bets $0.70, UTG raises to $2.40,

thank the Lord, villain's got something. Maybe a smaller flush? 67? set? Not sure, but I'm going to reraise him again. The old minraise - let's hope I don't snap the line...

Hero raises to $4.10, UTG calls $1.70

He calls. Good news.

River: ($10.20) (2 players)
UTG checks, Hero bets $6,

That ace is a good card (especially if he has pocket aces). Otherwise, all the sets and ace-rag two pairs just boated up. Ok, I bet enough to make sure I get some value in case he just calls.

UTG raises to $28.25

Well, he's got the boat, or 6d7d, which would make this the worst cooler I've ever suffered.

Hero calls $14.40 and is all-in

UTG showed , Full house, aces full of fives
Hero showed , Straight flush, ace to five
Hero won $48.45
(Rake: $2.55)
