Presto is Gold (Part 66)

Here is an interesting set of hands that maximize value from the metagame. I am playing two tables simultaneously. Both tables are 9-handed $3/6NL and many of the players are the same on both.

This is the preamble hand on table 1:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Fuel55 raises $12 to $18 from EP with [8c 8d]
MP1 calls $18
MP2 calls $18
Victim raises $72 to $90 from the button
Fuel55 calls $72 (not sure if he is squeezing or has a hand)
MP1 folds
MP2 folds

*** FLOP *** [4s 3h 5c]
Fuel55 checks
Victim bets $1147.85 and is all-in (this reeks of AK, AQ, AJ)
Fuel55 calls $866.40 and is all-in (not an easy call but I have to assume I am 3:1 favorite)

*** TURN *** [4s 3h 5c] [Jd]

*** RIVER *** [4s 3h 5c Jd] [Th]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
Fuel55 shows [8c 8d] (a pair of Eights)
Victim mucks hand [As Qd] (as expected)
Fuel55 collected $1954.80 from pot

Then about 30 seconds later on table 2, I get into a pot again with the same guy who was the victim above:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
MP raises $6 to $12
Victim raises $30 to $42 from button
Fuel55 calls $39 from SB with [5s 5h] (set mining 101)
MP folds

*** FLOP *** [5d Tc Kh]
Fuel55 checks
Victim bets $78
Fuel55 raises $126 to $204 (I know he is steaming from the hand on the other table so I give him a chance to stack off)
Victim raises $478.35 to $682.35 and is all-in (on queue)
Fuel55 calls $424.35 and is all-in

*** TURN *** [5d Tc Kh] [Kd]

*** RIVER *** [5d Tc Kh Kd] [Qc]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
Fuel55 shows [5s 5h] (a full house, Fives full of Kings)
Victim mucks hand [Kc Ad]
Fuel55 collected $1355.70 from pot

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !! And that kids is how you make serious profit in retardly donktastic $3/6NL on PokerStars.

Awesome as ever Fuel. If there's one thing that can be said of you, it's that you sure can pick your spots!
Was about to sign up to Full Tilt to start getting rakeback, but would you recommend another site in preference? Can't get rb on UB, and Mansion lacks customers. Any hints would be appreciated....

Thanks for the advice, will work on the 'Trappy' angle. Any particular authors/players you would recommend I should study to improve that?
Have read lots of authors, but can't recall any tricky ones....
