CosmicCharly shows [Kd Qs] (a pair of Sixes)

sprstoner shows [Qd Jd] (two pair, Jacks and Sixes)

sprstoner wins the pot (6,882) with two pair, Jacks and Sixes



another questionable hand...the turn call was a little hard for me, i prob should had pushed here, but the way he so quickly jammed the river, i just had a gut feeling he had nothing, as he obv seemed like he did not want a call..... this pot was huge for me in this tourney. i like my river call, not so much the turn call.
one thing for sure... i dont think i am as weak tight as i used to be...

this hand cause a little commotion.. he was pissed that i called.

shaun11 [observer]: get ****ing serious
shaun11 [observer]: you cant make that call
sprstoner: ya i can
shaun11 [observer]: rag
shaun11 [observer]: you wont make the money
Dealer: Game #6949295544: Slip,the kid wins pot (1320)
sprstoner: good
shaun11 [observer]: at best its a coin flip.....AT BEST with your 9's


but the way i looked at it was, i seriously doubt , by the way he played it, that he had a bigger pair than me. maybe, just maybe TT or JJ, and even slimmer chance of QQ, but by the way this hand was played i was very confident he had AQ or AK, and i made a good read and i was right. and i had enough chips to risk a coinflip. i made this call very quick.... was it a bad call? i did make a bad call with JT shortly after this (got 2-1, but was against KK), and ppl were nervous to push when i was in a pot.. good result. winning this hand made me chip leader.

Well I hate Full Tilt with a passion. I even went as far to make a quick blog comparing them to another site I play at (only a 30 second read.)
