I Love I don't

I am down over $100 for the session after being up close to $200 so my mood is not especially good when this hand comes down.

Icky Ole Witch I have marked as a fish.

Full Tilt Poker $0.50/$1 Pot Limit Omaha Hi - 6 players

PISIHASI (CO): $76.85
Tastefull (BTN): $44.80
Icky Ole Witch (SB): $88.50
nikander27 (BB): $150.65
Hero (UTG): $117.55
CHAI525 (MP): $141.45

PISIHASI posts a big blind ($1)

Pre Flop:($2.50) Hero is UTG with 9h Ac Kc Jh

This seems like a decent hand to raise even if it is under the gun. Naturally my raise gets no respect at all as everyone calls.

Hero raises to $4.50, 1 fold, PISIHASI calls $3.50, Tastefull calls $4.50, Icky Ole Witch calls $4, nikander27 calls $3.50

Flop:($22.50) 2:club: 8:club: 7:heart:

Ok nut flush draw and inside straight draw to the nuts. Icky bets the pot which could mean an over pair, big wrap draw, or a set. nikander27 calls which now gives me odds to chase my hand. If there was a fold in between, I might have to let this one go with players to act behind me.

Icky Ole Witch bets $22.50, nikander27 calls $22.50, Hero calls $22.50, PISIHASI folds, Tastefull folds

Turn:($90.00) T:diamond:

Gin! I have the nut straight with a nut flush redraw! I can't lose! Ok if the board pairs I'm not going to be happy, but I'm happy to get all my money into this monstrous pot with the nuts and a nut redraw.

Icky Ole Witch bets $61.50 all in, nikander27 calls $61.50, Hero raises to $90.55 all in, nikander27 calls $29.05

River:($332.60) J:diamond: (3 players - 2 are all in)

Yes the board did not pair, ship it! What the hell? Why is my money going to Icky Ole Witch?

Final Pot: $332.60
Icky Ole Witch shows Ts Qc Tc 9s (a straight, Queen high)
nikander27 shows 8h 6c 4d 8d (three of a kind, Eights)
Hero shows 9h Ac Kc Jh (a straight, Jack high)
Hero wins $58.10
Icky Ole Witch wins $271.50
(Rake: $3.00)

I ran this hand on Poker Stove and I was surprised to learn that I was only a 3-1 favorite going to the river. At least I wasn't drawing to one out like nikander27.

Still it really stung to lose that pot.
