OT: Poker and the $5915 Hand

Today I won the second biggest pot in my relatively short poker playing career–$5915.

Some of you may think I was crazy to call all-in with a two pair, but my bank roll could easily cover the loss and I had my opponent on a flush draw (he had made this exact same move an hour earlier and I had never seen him not raise big pre-flop when holding any type of pair), thus no worries of a set.

So basically, I had 65 percent odds that he would not make a flush. Now the move looks a lot better, and over time I’ll make money on this type of play.
