Been playing cash a lot lately and I think I'm getting much better. THIS hand however is not one of those times. This is a simple case of RUN GOOD.

The Large reraise here was to ISO the short stack. For some reason, I just assumed the other player would fold out here, and that the short stack was sitting on AK. It was a bad play all around in this situation, but it worked out.

Double good news on this one. 1) I lucked out and won a HUGE pot (for 5NL anyway.) and 2) i learned a lesson here. Won't be playing like this much in the future if I can help it!

You get very lucky on this hand but your opponents was a short stack and i would do the same.
