Presto Not So Good (Part 4)

So after getting my $522 up to $731 in 30 minutes I moved up to $2/4NL, 6-max and quickly lost a buy-in with QQ vs AQ on an AAQ flop. Then had to fold JJ on an A-high flop. This put me down to $319 so back to the headsup SNGs I went where I proved once again that using Presto against me is pure folly.

PokerStars, $52.50+$2.50 HU SNG

First Hand:

Seat 1: Superaxel (1500 in chips)
Seat 2: Fuel55 (1500 in chips)
Superaxel posts small blind 15

Superaxel raises 240 to 930

Superaxel calls 480 and is all-in

*** TURN *** [2c 3s 7c] [9s]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
Fuel55 shows [7h 7d] (three of a kind, Sevens)
Superaxel shows [5d 5c] (three of a kind, Fives) (are you kidding me? I figured a flush or str8 draw ..)
Fuel55 collected 3000 from pot

And, just to show that Presto still wields some power, a 5 comes on the river anyway. Love it.
