Today at Lucky Chances another amazing hand happened. I've never seen pocket aces go up against pocket aces before, but it happened to me today during 1-1-2 No Limit.
I see my pocket aces while waiting to bet from one off the button. There was a raise to 15 and four callers.
Knowing I'm ahead, I raise to 30. There was a call behind me and then a guy who RE-RAISED me to 60.
Still knowing I'm ahead, its time to push all in. I have $230 on the table, but I know I'm making a good bet.
He calls, and turns over HIS OWN pair of pocket aces. Oh well, I guess we're gonna chop it.
Not so fast...
The flop comes 8-9-10....all spades. I am the lucky holder of the ace of spades, so there is hope that I might run away with a flush.
7 of diamonds on the turn, and then....
6 of spades on the river!
Not only have I made my flush, but the board also made a straight, so two reasons we should have chopped but instead my flush takes it all!
I felt kinda bad, especially after celebrating the on the river, so I apologized to the guy who lost. He took it all in stride though. Nice guy.
