Biggest Pot Yet !!

When i got to this table yenyen in Seat 1 had been running over the table and had built himself a stack of $70/$80. I sat down and was immediately felted by NoahFinn (on the button in this hand). After sitting out and watching the play a little bit i noticed he had the 'hold em player having a go at omaha' syndrome and overvaluing/overplaying hands. I rebought and in no time was felted once again. This time to it was to yenyen, when i (incorrectly) raised all-in with a straight and nut flush draw, against his concealed set of kings. I was surprised to learn i was a 40/60 dog in that hand.

Getting felted twice is quite disheartening, but i thought another reload would be worth it, as Noahfinn had got himself a stack of $40 and was playing over aggressively. This is something i am getting better of taking advantage of. To be fair, Noah was really just learning the game and several times was confused as he thought his trips was a full boat etc. At the time this hand came up i had won back my $20 and was up $10. I had been side-stepping yenyen a lot, and at the same time looking for an opportunity to double off him. When this hand came up i thought it was as good a time as any to get my money in(nuts and a redraw!!). You'll notice i check the straight into noah on the turn, i was pretty confident he would bet it (so i could come over the top) as he had been stealing more than his fair share.
