Resteal gone horribly wrong

By: momfight @ 05:22 (EDT) / 394 / Comment ( 2 )

I was playing well, chip leader or near to on the final table.  I dont know what happened but the player had been raising me alot in this position, and I felt it too much for him to have a hand each time so I decided next time I would resteal, with disasterous consequences (although I did laugh alot so it was worth it)
