Mwahahaha.. This hand set me up for a nice 2nd place finish. Thief finished 4th

This was final table and Mr Big(ish) Stack had been doing the allin shove loads to steal plenty of pots from me.. Cost him this time though! In my view a simple 2-3x BB raise should be used for stealing that way you can get out relatively cheaply if someone comes in over the top.
