Either way, this would have been one of those hands that did me in either way, as I'm sure the money's going in on the flop; for some reason, I thought checking the flop was sneaky or something. Of course he hits his two outer on the turn, and his check-raise tells me exactly that. I, however, am not the most disciplined poker player, and all I see is "wheeeee pretty Aces". I even had a chance to save myself half my stack on the river, but instead I put them all in when really the only hand that Snarf could have that I can beat is QQ. Stupid two outer, but even stupider play by me, the second time in as many blogger tournaments that I couldn't fold my overpair despite plenty of evidence suggesting I should.

Three years later, and my blog's name is still just as relevant.
