Sucking Is Nice, Resucking Is Better

I chip up to T4000 or so by inducing bluffs when I have top pair no kicker. Then comes the hand of, I think, my LIFE.

UTG raises to T700 (75/150 blinds). I am UTG+1 with queens. I'm not calling to let anyone else in, and I'm not folding yet. So I raise 1100 more, leaving me with about 2k, figuring if he jams I can think about folding.

Everyone gets out of the way. "Raise," he says.

Well, shit.

Then he raises essentially the minimum. He has me covered but it's only by a little. I look at the pot.

There's 3600 in the pot. Plus his 1100 bet. So T4700... Hey, pretty decent odds against an overpair. Which he doesn't necessarily have. I think about it more. If I put in 1100 more I'm committed.

I don't think I have the best hand. But. I don't know that. And if the pot's laying me even close to the odds I need...

I shove, saying "Even if you show me what I think you got I gotta play." He groans, saying "I thought I raised you out." He makes the obligatory call and flips over jacks. Everyone at the table asks me to show my kings. I cannot comply.

In the window: a jack. Fuck me running. Two spades. I have a spade. Turn is another spade. I can feel it coming.

River: no spade.

River is a fucking queen.

T9500 or so at the dinner break, 100/200 blinds. Not sure how many players are left but I have to be above par.

I am fascinated by your posts, especially the detail you go into about your thinking. Keep up the great play.
