How Two Idiots Play a Classic Coinflip (HA)

So I've still been running fairly bad in the past week or two. And by bad I mean pretty much just breaking even with mini-cashes in about every 2 out of 3 SNG's while basically losing 100% of key coinflips. It's been frustrating, but this hand from last night made me smile...

Full Tilt Poker, $5 + $0.50 NL Hold'em Sit n' Go, 15/30 Blinds, 8 Players - Hand History Converter

UTG+1: 1,560
MP1: 1,410
Hero (MP2): 2,115
CO: 1,665
BTN: 1,470
SB: 1,380
BB: 1,410
UTG: 2,490

Pre-Flop: (45) 4h Tc dealt to Hero (MP2)
5 folds, BTN calls 30, SB folds, BB raises to 60, BTN raises to 90, BB raises to 1,410 and is All-In, BTN calls 1,320

Flop: (2,835) 9h Jc 6s (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
Turn: (2,835) 2s (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
River: (2,835) 8h (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

Results: 2,835 Pot
BTN showed Qs Qd (a pair of Queens) and WON 2,835 (+1,425 NET)
BB showed Kh Ah (Ace King high) and LOST (-1,410 NET)

I think it speaks for itself. There's really nothing I can add to capture the absolute glory in how this hand was played. It's almost as if the Big Blind realized upon being re-raised that he was playing no-limit and not limit, in which case the only logical think to do at this point in a tournament with a hand like AKs is to push all of your chips into the pot, even if it means calling 30 and putting in an extra 1,320. And the button player... open limping with pocket Queens... almost as if he thought he was setting some sort of sneaky trap for when the BB min-raises... all so that he can come over the top with a 3-bet!!! HAHA! Pure poker genius!

Alright that's it for now... time to get back to sucking...
