How To Win A Sit N' Go (Or, A Bragging Post, Fuel55 Style)

Step 1: Make a straight flush:

Seat 1: 11duke11 (1,410)
Seat 2: LT1071 (1,650)
Seat 3: thatbayboy (1,455)
Seat 4: mclarich (1,470)
Seat 5: IchewBIGtime (1,500)
Seat 6: PoetLaureate (1,500)
Seat 7: Ryan Becker (1,500)
Seat 8: OTPABA (1,545)
Seat 9: goati77 (1,470)
mclarich posts the small blind of 15
IchewBIGtime posts the big blind of 30
The button is in seat #3

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to mclarich [Ah 4h]
PoetLaureate folds
Ryan Becker calls 30
OTPABA folds
goati77 folds
11duke11 calls 30
LT1071 calls 30
thatbayboy calls 30
mclarich calls 15 (easy call from the small blind)
IchewBIGtime checks

*** FLOP *** [3h Ac 2h]

mclarich checks (setting up the check-raise)
IchewBIGtime bets 30
Ryan Becker raises to 150 (probably beat, maybe has AJ-A8? I'm still check raising anyways)
11duke11 folds
LT1071 folds
thatbayboy calls 150 (chasing a flush draw? Please, tag along!)
Mclarich raises to 1,440, and is all in (If I'm beat and I don't catch up, so be it. But with a chance to triple up in a token game, I'll take my chances. I've got 16 outs - three 3's, three 4's, four 5's and six hearts if I'm against another flush draw)
IchewBIGtime folds
Ryan Becker raises to 1,470, and is all in
thatbayboy calls 1,275, and is all in
Ryan Becker shows [2d Ad](Figured I was behind - can't blame him for calling)
thatbayboy shows [Jh Th](nice call with nothing but 4th nut flush possibilities)
mclarich shows [Ah 4h]

*** TURN *** [3h Ac 2h] [5h]

Thank you, come again.

*** RIVER *** [3h Ac 2h 5h] [Qc]

Ryan Becker shows two pair, Aces and Twos
mclarich wins the side pot (30) with a straight flush, Five high
mclarich wins the main pot (4,485) with a straight flush, Five high


2. Flop quads against an overpair

Seat 1: 11duke11 (1,535)
Seat 4: mclarich (3,405)
Seat 5: IchewBIGtime (1,940)
Seat 8: OTPABA (3,430)
Seat 9: goati77 (3,190)
OTPABA posts the small blind of 50
goati77 posts the big blind of 100
The button is in seat #5
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to mclarich [6h 6s]
11duke11 folds
mclarich calls 100 (The limp is pretty weak, but I'm just playing this for set value. It should cost me less to limp-call then it would to call a reraise.)

IchewBIGtime folds
OTPABA calls 50
goati77 raises to 500 (I figure I'm beat, but I'm thinking implied odds here. I'm not calling 400 into an 1100 pot, I'm calling 400 for the potential of a 7000 pot, even if I'm a huge dog. I'm willing to take the risk)
mclarich calls 400
OTPABA folds

*** FLOP *** [6c 2h 6d]

Booyah.

goati77 bets 700
mclarich has 15 seconds left to act (I meant to act a little quicker, hand some mouse problems)
mclarich raises to 2,000
goati77 raises to 2,690, and is all in
mclarich calls 690
goati77 shows [Qs Qh] (another player gets fucked by the bitches)
mclarich shows [6h 6s]

*** TURN *** [6c 2h 6d] [Kh]
*** RIVER *** [6c 2h 6d Kh] [9h]

goati77: lol
goati77 shows two pair, Queens and Sixes
mclarich shows four of a kind, Sixes
mclarich wins the pot (6,480) with four of a kind, Sixes
goati77 stands up
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 6,480 | Rake 0
Board: [6c 2h 6d Kh 9h]
Seat 1: 11duke11 didn't bet (folded)
Seat 4: mclarich showed [6h 6s] and won (6,480) with four of a kind, Sixes
Seat 5: IchewBIGtime (button) didn't bet (folded)
Seat 8: OTPABA (small blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 9: goati77 (big blind) showed [Qs Qh] and lost with two pair, Queens and Sixes

3: Coast to victory

Actually, it was still a pretty tough match since my stack was pretty much even with the next guy, but I was able to eek out a victory. Flopping quads and hitting a str8 flush in the same game - definitely a first for me.

Those hands certainly make your job a little easier. Only thing sweeter would have been quad 5's instead of quad 6's in hand 2.
