Flopping Quads

So I was playing a cash game online today and not doing that well. I had just lost a fairly big pot when I flopped two pair and the villain turned a flush. Anyways who pops in the room but Gary. It's always nice to play with someone you know and Gary was picking up a few pots and playing well. I was still pretty card dead although I did steal a couple blinds. Then the hand happened. I was dealt 10 10 in the BB. Gary who was in middle position bumped it to 40 cents. Everybody folded to me. I raised to 1.35. Gary called. Flop comes 10 10 6. Geez I flop quads but I hate it that it's against Gary. Well sort of. No friends at the poker table. I check as does Gary. Turn is a King. I check. Gary bets 1.10. I call. River is a 4. I try to decide how much to bet. I bet a weak 50 cents. Gary raises to 4.40. I of course shove my remaining 4.87 in and Gary requests time and finally folds. I show my flopped quads feeling somewhat bad about it. I mean I love to win money but I would have rather won it from the guy to my left who was constantly reraising me. Gary commented in the chat box I guess I am going to hear about this and of course I had to relate the story. I know the situation will be reversed sometime.


  1. That was AWESOME.

    "Anyways who pops in the room but Gary." LOL that's happened to me a few times...

  2. Not that it's awesome that Gary lost - it's just a funny situation....and funny that he didn't call the 47 cents all in. It happens.

  3. nothing better than quads and another player is betting.

  4. Don't you just hate flopping quads and being first to act? You just know if you bet that pair on the board is going to scare everyone unless a possible flush or straight hits the turn.

    Yea it was great playing with him. I felt bad though when he was betting into me (well sort of)

  6. it wasn't 47 cents all in - it was another 4.47. And Coop is right - that .50 bet really ground the gears to a halt. I thought that even though my second pair was counterfeited that I had a winner there. But no, as it turns out I couldn't beat quads.

  7. @ Memphis

    Yep it is a great feeling someone betting into you.

  8. @ Wolfshead

    When the King hit on the turn that helped and I just made a really weak looking river bet and Gary sensesd I guess weakness and made a huge raise which was nice (well for me anyways).

  9. It was 97 cents that Gary Didn't call.

    Me no likey cash games online. (or live for that matter)

  11. @ Josie

    Yep you will have to give him a hard time about that........Ha Ha

  12. yeah, that sounds about right. That .50 bet really stopped me dead in my tracks. As it turns out I was right but I didn't have any idea you had quads under there!

  13. @ Gary

    Yea I thought you would laugh at that suspicious 50 cent bet.
