Incrediboy: Ac As

lior4you calls. Incrediboy calls.

Given the highly aggressive nature of this table, I limp call with high confidence that I will be raised, and possibly re-raised, before the action reaches the original limper.

Daf13fy raises to $21. O Reary re-raises to $84.

Right on cue, I get both my wishes. I decide to lay the boot now, happy to take the $100 by turning my hand faceup.

-vault- folds. Care2Tango folds.
lior4you folds. Incrediboy re-raises to $288.
Daf13fy re-raises to $492.

Great, this guy can't fold QQ/KK, let's get it in and cross my fingers.

O Reary folds. Incrediboy goes all-in for $597.
Daf13fy calls.

What are the odds, eh?

This was part of another terrible day at the tables, just as I was about to get into profit for the month. Luckily a good friend was there to help me stop playing when it started to affect me, so it could have been a lot worse. If you're reading this, thanks bud, I owe you one.

Best of luck.

I'm surprised the villain didn't end up four-flushing and stacking you! Always seems to happen when I have AA vs AA!
