Recently I played in a sit and go tourney on Full Tilt Poker, about 75 players. It was down to about 16 players and I was in the middle of the pack somewhere. I was playing fairly tight with about 8000 chips behind me. The chip leader had around 30k chips. Here's how the dagger hand went down:
At this point of the tournament, there was a $50 ante and blinds were 50/100. So preflop, there's about $550 on the table. I was holding pocket 5s in the small blind. One player before me raises the pot to $300, I call the additional $250. Two other players between us are in the pot. The flop comes out at 3s 5h Jc. I hit my trips and I check the flop, and it goes back to the raiser. His stack is at $25000. he bets out 1500. I raised him to $3k. I'm laying out the sticks for him to fall right in. He pushes me all in. I call him instantly. He flips over Kh Jh. Jack high with a possible back door flush. I'm still feeling really good at this point with my trip 5's. Turn is a 8h. River is a Qh. I'm like, "oh shit". He hits his flush and I'm finished. I bust out in 16th place.
What a joke. I haven't played many sit 'n gos lately but this stuff happens all the time. When stuff like this happens, I feel like the online poker room just wants to move things along. I always feel like I played the hand 100% correct. I would probably play it like this every time. I'm sure some would disagree but those folks are usually the ones who give me all their money.
