Presto is Gold and Flopped Str8s Never Win All In One

OK here is an interesting hand from $25/$50NL. Ask yourself if you have the stones to play like this ...

This is a very interesting hand I observed between Jeff Williams (yellowsub86) and big cash game player and tournament winner Williamhill. Williamhill flops a str8 and yellowsub donks off his stack with 4th pair playing power poker. Luckily for yellowsub he has Presto and goes runner-runner miracle full house to scoop a $12K pot:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Williamhill raises $150 to $200
yellowsub86 raises $450 to $650
Williamhill calls $450

*** FLOP *** [Tc 7d Jh]
Williamhill checks
yellowsub86 bets $850
Williamhill raises $850 to $1700
yellowsub86 raises $4400 to $6100 (this is a serious bet and can only be called by a set or a str8)
Williamhill calls $3645.70 and is all-in (calling with the nutz but we know that flopped str8s always lose)

*** TURN *** [Tc 7d Jh] [Js]

*** RIVER *** [Tc 7d Jh Js] [5d]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
Williamhill shows [9c 8c] (a straight, Seven to Jack)
yellowsub86 shows [5h 5c] (a full house, Fives full of Jacks)
yellowsub86 collected $12063.40 from pot

Interesting that yellowsub with reraise with 55 and Williamhill will call with 98s. Drawing thin to a runner runner situation yellowsub pulls off a miracle. Williamhill will steam about this for a while.

Welcome to the big games …
