Drawing as Dead as Mathemtically possible without actually drawing dead

Here's a game we can play - let's each put the same amount of money in the middle, then have a computer program pick a random floating point number between 0 and 100. If the number is equal to or lower than 98.864, then I get all the money in the middle. If it's bigger than 98.864, we split the money in half. Wanna play that game?

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em $0.05/$0.10 - 9 players

MP: $11.65
MP2: $6.74
HJ: $4.40
CO: $3.14
Button: $8.74
SB: $18.55
BB: $17.54 (Hero)
UTG: $16.96
UTG+1: $8.45

Preflop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with (9 players)
6 folds, Button calls $0.10, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20, Button calls $0.20
Don't have stats on button, but less than full stack and open-limping in last position is all I need to know - he's a fish. When SB raises, I flat call to keep fish in.

Flop: ($0.90) (3 players)
SB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, Button calls $1.20, SB calls $0.80
Two pair for me. I raise and they both call. Better be on the lookout for the last diamond, and maybe a broadway straight...

Turn: ($4.50) (3 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $2.20, Button raises to $7.24, and is all in, SB folds, Hero calls $5.04
..until the king comes. I have the immortal nuts, and fish shoves into me. Ok, I call.

Button shows
Hero shows

I will admit that Ace-four suited was a bit weaker than the range I has assigned him

River: ($18.98) (2 players)
And we chop. Wait, what?

Button showed , and won ($8.86) with a full house, Aces full of Kings
Hero showed , and won ($8.86) with a full house, Aces full of Kings
Button won $8.86
Hero won $8.86
(Rake: $1.26)

I would say that at least we chopped up the SB's money, but the rake ate most of that. I profited one big blind on the hand.

Sklansky owes me nine bucks.
