How to Crack Three Overpairs

Another Sunday donkfest at the micro-stakes while I do some lesson-planning and grading. Just couldn't resist posting this gem though. I really don't know what any of these idiots were thinking... a great example of how not to play premium pairs in a variety of positions.

Full Tilt Poker, $2 + $0.25 NL Hold'em Sit n' Go, 20/40 Blinds, 5 Players - Hand History Converter

UTG: 2,640
CO: 1,525
BTN: 2,410
Hero (SB): 860
BB: 1,565

Pre-Flop: (60) 8c 9d dealt to Hero (SB)
UTG folds, CO calls 40, BTN calls 40, Hero calls 20, BB checks
Flop: (160) Tc Js 7d (4 Players)
Hero checks, BB bets 40, CO raises to 80, BTN raises to 440, Hero calls 440, BB calls 400, CO raises to 1,485 and is All-In, BTN raises to 2,370 and is All-In, Hero calls 380 and is All-In, BB calls 1,085 and is All-In
Turn: (5,515) 3d (4 Players - 1 is All-In)
River: (5,515) 8s (4 Players - 1 is All-In)

Results: 5,515 Pot
CO showed Qc Qd (a pair of Queens) and LOST (-1,525 NET)
BTN showed Ts Th (three of a kind, Tens) and WON 2,075 (+510 NET)
Hero showed 8c 9d (a straight, Jack high) and WON 3,440 (+2,580 NET)
BB showed Kc Ks (a pair of Kings) and LOST (-1,565 NET)

I was 11.76% before the flop, in case you were wondering
:-D Ship it!

Nice flop, I was lucky enough to learn a lesson live early in my career ... "never slow play AA the next seat explained to me.

That one phrase has saved/won me a lot over the last 3 years.

Nice blog, mate.
