Very unusual pot with SSS

      After not having played poker for almost half an year, I decided to take it up again this week on Full Tilt. I'm moving my PokerTime bankroll (€50) to Full Tilt, where I will have $200 when the transfer is finished (excluding winnings). I did some SnGs, which didn't completely go my way, so I decided to get back to the basics: SSS.

      Today I hit a rough patch, made a couple of mistakes and now I am down 3 buy-ins. I know it's not that much, but I decided to leave the tables to get my head straight when I encountered this hand, where I won the pot with 24s, something you don't do too often with SSS (if at all), which made my day. Post flop play maybe wasn't optimal, but I don't think that would really have made a difference.
