Winning Team: Cheap ThievesLosing Team: Viva La JopkeWinning Player: KidPokerLosing Player: WKTHSWAYTime: 16 minutes I started out down a little bit as we traded jabs for a bit. Jopke was the first opponent I faced that came in for 3 times the blind on the button virtually every hand. I, of course, make it 2.5 times the blind so this was the first match I'd be playing where my opponent would be playing bigger pots in position. At my low point I was down to about 1150. One key hand allowed me to value bet quads when the board read 10-10-5-10-A. I had 9-10 and bet 200 into a 120 pot on the river. That got me close to even, and from there I took control. I played very cautiously using the Layne Flack system, "Who do the pushin' when the donkey will do the pullin'." I flopped top pair a few times and WKTHSWAY bet aggressively with middle pair giving me a good size lead. On the final hand, I finally flopped a straight and had it hold up. I made it 75 on the button with 9-7 and he called. The flop was J-10-8 and he bet 100- I called. The turn was an 8, he bet 250, and I raised him all in for his remaining 360. He called with Qs 10s and that was that! Thieves are at 6-4 and have excellent tie breaking records with a good division/conference record.

I was going to write something similar as you did - you kept letting me bet for you when I had 2nd pair and you had top pair.Then when I had top pair, you had the same pair with a better kicker.I knew you were doing it, I just couldn't get anything to use it to my advantage.

I meant I knew he was letting me do the betting for him... didn't know everything he was trying to do or anything.

you may have the tie breaking records in your division, but as of now you still don't get a bye.
