Poker can be great from time to time. Especially when you're hitting the cards you want to see. Of course that means for someone else, poker sucks at the same time. Earlier I played a tourney, we were in the second level, 7 handed, and the short stack pushes allin for 17 BBs. I'm chip leader at the table for well over 100 BBs and have pocket 10. There's no thinking in this case: you reshove. You really don't want to flat call and then find someone behind you flats as well, or reshoves on you. Opponent flips over KQ, so you're in great shape.

So far, you have done well. You made a good play, and now Lady Luck has to work her magic. With a Q on the flop.... So two outs or the short stack doubles. Oh well, it happens, we calculated that into our decision to shove. And then the river is one of your two outs.

Two outs basically means you're going to hit once every 20 to 25 hands. It's nice to see that one show up. So for me, my ace on the river was a 10 of clubs. I like the 10 of clubs.

My opponent probably doesn't like the 10 of clubs anymore. He'll just have to live with the knowledge that the next 23 times he finds himself allin facing a 2 outer on the river, it's not going to come and he will double up.Poker can be great from time to time.
