Was playing some 4NL 6-max last night and having a good time when I found myself dealt 72o in the BB. Folded to SB who limps. I haven't played with this guy too much yet, but I am starting to think that he is a bit of a weak player. While I usually will turbo-check in this spot, I just really didn't want to this time. I think about how I've played over 100,000 hands at 4NL and never really did anything crazy. Well, that time was now and I went for it!

$0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

BTN: $5.84 (146 bb)
SB: $2.23 (55.8 bb)
Hero (BB): $4.23 (105.8 bb)
MP: $6.58 (164.5 bb)
CO: $5.46 (136.5 bb)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 7 2
3 folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.14, SB calls $0.10

Flop: ($0.28) 8 Q 4 (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $0.21, SB raises to $0.42, Hero raises to $1, SB calls $0.58

Turn: ($2.28) 6 (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $1.12, SB folds

Results: $2.28 pot ($0.11 rake)
Final Board: 8 Q 4 6
SB mucked and lost (-$1.14 net)
Hero mucked 7 2 and won $2.17 ($1.03 net)

I like the raise pre, because it's amazing how often the SB will fold to a raise after they've completed. The flop action is just crazy though. I love how you repped QQ+, but I'm often not even making a c-bet here.

Bracelet Winner

Yeah flop raise was crazy. It's just that I made up my mind pre-flop that I wanted to go for it and win one with 72o haha. To be fair I would have folded flop or turn had he done anything of than call my flop raise/check turn. Guess he had Q's weak kicker or flush draw.
