      I thought it would be interesting if everybody posted the biggest pot they've won and include the HH if they have it. I'll start.
      400 BB - I know it's not much and even less since it's at NL10 but it's a start.

      This was the biggest pot I've won, though I've also had a 800$ pot which I lost (my top set vs villain's flushdraw+gutshot on flop with 200BB deep stack and money went in). In the winning hand preflop call was propably not the smartest thing but villain had stats of 69vpip 4pfr and played postflop horribly + was 150BB deep so KJo seemed like a good enough hand to call :)

      fish! you had a gutshot! :D
      I think the biggest pot I played online was ~400$ on NL100 (probably a few times actually), but the biggest pot I played (in BB and $$$) was NL50 live, with very deep stacks (piles 'o cash and all :) ). 4 players all-in, the pot was 1400BB, or ~700$. I had TPTK :D
      Hand went more or less like this:

      Stacks:
      Hero: ~280 or so
      Fish 1: ~270
      Fish 2: ~65
      BB: ~20

      NL50 live, 6 players

      Hero has A :spade: K :club:
      Preflop:
      Fish 1 raises to 3$, Fish 2 raises to 6$, Hero calls, 2 folds, BB calls, fish 1 calls.

      Flop (24.25): K :diamond: 2 :diamond: 2 :club:
      BB pushes all-in (~14$), fish 1 raises to ~40$, fish 2 goes all-in ~60$. Hero pushes all-in 275$.
      After 2-3 minutes, Fish 1 decides to call with... wait for it... KJo :D
      We decide to run the board 5 (yes, five) times for the sidepot (which was a nice 400$), but just once for the other 2 players. BB had A2o, and fish 2 had A :diamond: 9 :diamond:
      Turn & river #1 are blanks, which means the main pot (the smallest one) goes to BB. the 1st sidepot (the one with fish 1&2, and I) goes to me.
      the other 4 turns and rivers bring no jack, so I win the entire sidepot #2, and have a big big pile of cash in front of me :D
      just wanted to share ^^

      The guy was so bluffy that he was raising any flop. So I went for making a move and check-raised him. Turn and especially river were obviosuly great cards for me :)

      Isnt that playing way above your Bankroll? Especially in NLO8 you should have a comfortable bankroll to buffer the variance.
