This was unfortunate for Fuzzmuff as he had me absolutely against the wall a few hands earlier. If I hadn't switched to shortstack playing and gotten very lucky the game would have been his.

Anyway... thought process for the hand!


Before playing anything, I'm currently a large stack and he's not so from a mathematical point of view he has to win a few coinflips to catch up... I have to win just one. Therefore, I'm raising with anything until the flop and probably after unless there's a real scare

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to mmmreece [3h 9d Ac Jc]

Here's my first act of aggression with a raise. Reasons for this discussed before. My cards have no bearing on anything at this point

mmmreece: raises 4800 to 7200
fuzzmuff: calls 3688 and is all-in now... I have no further decision points.

As they're all in now
