FullTilt Seems To Be Getting Fishier By The Minute

I got into a few interesting hands last night on FullTilt with some bigtime fish. The play seems to be going way south, which is a good thing. On this first hand, I had only gone a couple of orbits and had no history on the two main competitors, other than I had seen katykake call all the way down until the opponent was all-in with 33 no help to lose to QQ. Retarded.

With a couple limpers and a weakish hand like TT, I need to narrow the field and clear out some of the crap hands. A good rule of thumb is 4x+1x for each limper. I go 5x in this case.

katykake calls $4
Phaedraa calls $4

Ok both limpers call. What do they have? I put them both on middle to small pocket pairs or a weakish A like AJ, AT. Personally, I would only limp/call a 5x preflop raise with a pocket pair, unless I had some kind of read on the raiser. I would raise not limp with a strong A, and fold the weakish Aces to a 5x.

*** FLOP *** [4d 4c 9h]

This is a great flop for me! The pair on the board makes it less likely I am up agianst a set, and a 4 does not seem like a likely holding unless I am against quads (44). I lead out with a standard continution bet of about 3/4 pot.

Blinders bets $11
katykake calls $11
Phaedraa calls $11

Wow they both called, what fish! I have to put them on a small to medium pocket pair or two overs. Either way I am in the lead, but am in danger. Holding a 4 seems unlikely, and if they had a 9 they would have to reraraise that bet to protect it, right? No reraise, no 9, plus a 9 is not a likely holding.

*** TURN *** [4d 4c 9h] [9c]

The board is getting scary, but I have to beleive I am in the lead here. I decide to make a big bet to protect my hand. This will be pot committing me, but I think I am only getting beat by Quads here. If I lose to quads oh well.

Blinders bets $36
katykake raises to $72
Phaedraa calls $58.75, and is all in

Holy shit, they came out firing all of a sudden, WTF. Does one of these guys really got quads? They could also do this with 55, 66, 77, 88, or 99. Its not much more to look up Phaedraa. And Like I said, I was willing to lose to quads here. Lets hope if either one has quads its Phaedra. I'll just push and get a nice side pot with katykake.

No fucking way. They both limp called a 5x preflop with that crap, then both refused to protect it with a reraise after a very favorable flop. Then they hit their 1 outer on the turn to fuck me.

I throw out a comment "You both called a 5x preflop with that crap"
KatyKate replys "Booo hooo"

Fucking Fish.

For the next hand here, I was also at the table for just a couple of orbits. I saw the player in question go all-in for like $200 on the river into a $12 pot with bottom pair crap kicker. The other guy only had $28 in front of him, so it looked like it was more for show than anything. After the other guy folded, he shows his crap, and I say "nice, you are my hero!"

Too many limpers for a 4x raise so I pop it to 6x.

Holy Shit an all-in overbet. He could have a set, but do you really push-in here. Only a real good player makes the all-in move with a set, and from what I have seen this guy is not that good. Even though I hate putting all my chips in with this small of a pot, I have to look this guy up.

Nice pot, nice fish. All I can say is "lol". As play went on at the table, this guy kept making the all-in overbet. His chips were all gone shortly, and then he rebought. I was licking my chops, but was not able to get involved in another pot with him. Bummer. At least this hand made up for the first one.
