Default Ace highs [BRAG]!

Real men don't need pairs. "Standard" hands yet still "exciting bragable" hands for me because there was actual "poker" being required to "play."

SILVER MEDAL Ace high effort:


$100/200 6handed. I raise ATo utg because it's probably the best hand. Dandruff cold calls me UTG+1 (rare). Another player, not good (NG), 3 bets me from the button. We both call.

Flop 863r. Checked around.

Turn 3c (second club). Checked to NG who bets, I c/r, DRuff folds, NG calls.

River 2h. I check, NG checks behind with Kd9d ship me $1850.



GOLD MEDAL ace high effort:

$150/300 6-handed. Same NG as first hand opens from the button. I 3bet in SB with A7o. BB cold calls, button calls.

Flop 665 two hearts. I bet both call.

Turn 4c. I bet, BB raises, button calls, I call.

River Tc. I check, BB bets, button folds, I call.

Jc7c no good sir. I've got the real 7. $4200 yw.

hand1 looks standard.

hand2, lots of semibluffing in this game, or this villian? It's a very tempting call when the sandwiched player folds, but we still have to beat a guy who c/r'd the field on the turn and led into 2 players on the river....nh though.
