Hit this MONSTER hand in the $27.50 BIG MTT on Pokerstars.. The one heart that he didn't want to see hit on the river and I got it.. Teach him to overplay flush draws against a made flush.

and before you all say "what the hell were you doing playing QJ so aggressively, the donk was raising every hand with any two so when he re-raised me I knew if I hit the flop in any way I would get paid off handsomely. I knew he didn't have the ace high flush on the flop, don't ask me why, I just knew. Sometimes you got to go with your gut instinct and I was right. However I didn't expect the river to give me the hand the way it did.

Yeah that's still a nice rake for playing in the game for what an 1 to and 1 and a half. or do these type of games last longer. Just curious as to how much time it takes to play in a $162 MTT and at what site was this?
I'd just like to start railing some of the mobsters, but I'm only registered in Carbon. Can someone register to a site although they can't play real money games on that site?

I’m glad you talked about the gut instinct. There are sometimes I really feel I can go confident with my hand that I will most probably win it If I don’t see a card, and it happens. And other times I would like to have that feeling but I don’t and I go in the same thinking “if I play this correctly, betting correctly, I will make my opponent believe that I have what I would like to have even if I don’t and I will win in the same”, but usually I always lose on these hands. About your specific hand, if you had that gut feeling, you did well in, going till the hand. And your opponent is crazier than your description, he went all-in before getting the flush, he only had one heart in the hand, he was probably waiting you would play with your mind instead of with your heart and you would fold because of not having the ace. You did well.

A great way to play QJ against someone who is playimg loose and aggressive and as a result you got your just deserves. A really good lesson to others about using observations, especially online to enhamce your play.
