Chicken dinner

Don’t deserve any credit at all for this hand, apart from for sensible table selection! Logged on before noon on a Saturday, and I find a $2-4 table with an average pot size of $279 and only 5 of 6 seats taken. It was a sign, and I wasn’t one to ignore it. What followed was a rollercoaster of terrible hands and suckouts from some ridiculously loose play (see # of calls below) from everyone else at the table, but I hung firmly on and managed to win my biggest ever pot by nothing more than playing my good hands very aggressively, then being in the right place at the right time.
If only it was always as easy as calling with the nuts :)
NB Notice how much I’d have lost if he had even a small set!
