A $1.20 PL O/8 tourney online. Single table. I'm barely 4th in chips with 2,435. 4 players left. Blinds at 150/300. I'm dealt 8♣ 9♣ 9♠ T♥ in the SB. UTG folds, Button calls, I limp in the SB and the BB calls. 3 players to the flop and it's 7♣ 7♦ T♠. I pot it for $900 and the BB folds. The Button, who's the big stack at the table due to his donkey-ish ways, calls my pot bet. Turn is J♠. I go all in for $1,235 and the button insta-calls. He shows:
5♥ 2♥ T♣ 5♣
WTF?!?! There's a paired board, no low draw at all, and he calls my all in with middle pair and a five kicker?!?! OMG.
WOW. I'm out and shaking my head yet again.
Online sucks. Live Poker Rules! End. Of. Story.
