i saw the ice man at the rio on wed or thu this week when i was there, so i assume this happened after that?
one other funny plo hand: i happened to take a seat with a maniac on my left after my previous table broke and we combined. the maniac was drunk and spewstastic and loved playing monster pots no matter his relative position. when someone is playing that crazy, it's almost the best seat in the house to have him on your left, cuz you essentially get to act last after he's raised and everybody else has acted on his raise.
pretty obv strategery to limp in whenever you want to play a hand and then decide what to do when the action comes back around.
so i pick up the monster (
) KQ93 double suited and limp. he raises and about 5-6 people call, i pot, and he instantly re-pots all in. interestingly, we get a cold caller and of course i re-ship and he calls. so we have a three way all in with a small-ish side pot between me and the cold-caller. at this point i'm confident that my King high has the maniac beat and i was shipping for value (!) against him. the other guy has played pretty solid in general, so i'm not sure what to make of his call....
we all agree to run two boards and i scoop the entire pot with a King hi flush on top and Queens + treys on the bottom! haha.
the maniac showed 8753 (i think rainbow!). and i think the other guy had two small pocket pairs. good stuff.
