    Winning over 31 big blinds with a pair of 4s in limit holdem

    This hand just happened on WSOP.com.

    5-handed $15-30 limit

    UTG is a loose-aggressive semidonk
    CO is a maniac
    BTN is mostly solid
    SB is fairly new but doesn't seem that good

    UTG raises
    CO calls
    BTN calls
    SB folds
    I call from BB with Ah4c

    Pot: $127.50

    Flop: 3s9s4d

    I check
    UTG bets
    CO calls
    BTN calls
    I raise
    UTG calls
    CO 3-bets
    BTN folds
    I cap
    UTG calls
    CO calls

    Pot $322.50

    Turn: Td

    I bet
    UTG calls
    CO calls

    Pot = $412.50

    Riv: Js (makes flush possible)
    I check
    UTG checks
    CO bets
    I call
    UTG folds

    Pot = $472.50, minus $3 rake = $469.50

    CO shows 6d7d for 7 high
    I show pair of 4s to win

    Here was my thinking:

    Laggy UTG isn't just calling my check-raise if he can beat A4 on the flop, unless perhaps he has 55-88, but I'm not that worried.

    The maniac in the CO proved he had nothing when he just flatted the flop bet, so his 3-bet on the flop to my raise was bullshit, and I knew I had the best hand.

    The T on the turn didn't scare me, and nobody raising verified I was still ahead.

    The Js river sucked for several reasons, but I was going to check and call if the maniac bet for sure. That's what happened, and I won.

    Legit question: Does WSOP have proper hand histories?

    Also are these tourist semi-donks or actual poker players in town for the WSOP looking for legal online action?
    When faced with a difficult decision, ask yourself "What would Micon do?", then do the opposite.

    They have hand histores but I never tried to download them. It's tough to do so, and a general pain in the ass.

    WSOP.com is basically a ghost town. I got the game started by being willing to play with another pro (the one labeled BTN in this example), and then some donks eventually sat. I'm not sure if the donks are locals or in town for the WSOP.
