    Played 1/3 NLHE last night at the local casino for a few hours... At my home base, the 1/3 game is way crazier and looser than the 2/5 game on the weekends (the 2/5 game at my home casino is always pretty zzz, even on the weekends, so when I play at home it's usually a Fri or Sat night at the 1/3 table). Lots of rec players, a Cleveland Indians game just let out prior to my arrival, and the normal weekend crazies. Had a pretty good night, cards were falling in my favor this time (unlike most times!). Again, all skill luck :)

    Hand 1: On the button with A7 suited (hearts)... a few limpers and I raise preflop to $10, 2 callers. One heart on the flop, checks around. Turn is a heart, checks to me, I bet $18, and both players call. River is a third heart on the board, no pairs, no straight flush draws, I have THE NUTS. First guy bets $50, second guy shoves all in, I call (not re-shove), back to first guy who goes all in for more, and I call that too. My A-high flush beats a K-high flush and a J-high flush (A7 vs KT vs J9)... can't believe all the hearts that showed up for that hand.

    Hand 2: I have AA in late position, I raised preflop to $18 and got one caller. Flop was 852 rainbow, and the other player shoves for about $70. I make the call, only to find the player flopped a set with 55. Turn A, River A, and I take the pot down.

    Hand 3: Our casino lets us do the 'straddle' bet but only UTG (other casinos in Ohio also allow it on the button, "Mississippi straddle"). We decided we'd all do a straddle (in the 1/3 game it's a $6 straddle) for one round. In addition, while we aren't allowed to double straddle, the person UTG+1 was doing a "blind raise" every hand to $15 (I love drunk weekend poker). On the hand where I was the $15 blind raise, I get JJ. Crazy kid at the other end of the table raises to $50, folds back to me, I make it $100, and he calls. Flop JJK. I check, he shoves for way more than the pot, maybe $500ish. I make the call without hesitation and see he has KK. Unfortunately another K did not make an appearance (bad beat jackpot) but I won a nice pot there.

    Hand 4: My last hand of the night - by this point I had about $2k in front of me, and I announced before the cards were dealt that this would be my last hand - and that I would play it blind (I was the button). So a few limpers around to me and I blind call the $3. Maybe 6 to the flop... Flop is some low garbage, a couple of small $5 or $10 bets I called blind... turn and river aren't much better, all checks from that point... ended up flopping two crappy pair (2's and 8's!) and taking down the last pot.

    Runnin' Good! Funny how flush drawers always think they have the nut when they hit it through the back door.

    Yeah it was a crazy night... didn't mention a hand where I turned a Q-high straight flush, but never got paid off on that hand.

    The run goods are great to get anywhere, but at an action table? Pure magic.
