This reminded me of a story I have not told in awhile. There were two other players at the table that still to this day give me a hard time about this hand (after 13 years!)
Back in 1993 the largest ever poker jackpot went up at Fort McDowell outside of Phoenix. They started it at $150,000, when that got hit it went to $100,000, then $75,000, $50,000 etc.
I was playing shortly after it started out ($150,000) when the following hand took place:

Preflop: All fold and I raise on the button, SB and BB call.

Flop: 4 , 5 , 5
SB checks, BB bets, I call, SB check raises, BB calls, I call.

Turn: 6
SB checks, BB bets, I raise, SB reraises, BB calls, I cap it, both call. (3 raises max)

River: 7
SB bets, BB raises, I call, SB reraises, BB caps it, I call, SB calls.

Hands shown:
Me: 5 5
SB: 2 3
BB: A 8

E-mail party for pity, maybe you'll get a 100$ bonus out of it.

Would you have gotten 150K or 50K?

And what limit did you play?

This might be worse than OP.

$10/20 Hold’em

Since I stole his thunder with a worse beat, I will give the OP $100 bonus courtesy of PartyPoker.com if he either posts, PMs or emails me the hand # and his username. Enjoy!

I propose we lock the forum now.

How could anyone post a BBV post after this?

I would on a BBJ-table.

I would win more bets off A 2 or I would win the Jackpot and never play 2/4 again, so going out with a cap would be fun.
