      Hehe my first thoughts were "wow pure nuts... wait.. KQ...

      Not that you could EVER fold the ignorant end of a sf. If your beat you lose your stack n thats just how it is :)

      Nice hand sir, may it recur many more times. I've had sumfin' fancy today too, quad aces on NL20. Stacked a fish :)

      But what's with the call from SB with 87s? You're OOP, and it's hard to continue after the flop, even if you hit straight or flush draw...

      Depending where u play, with that beat you are eligible for the bad beat jackpot :)

      Very true... I know I have a "favourite hand leak" with 87s. Id have laid down any other suited connectors hand there (67 89 etc) but 87 just sucks me in.

      I got very lucky in not just hitting that flop, but catching both one person who decided to semi-bluff an OESD then another person who had actually flopped the K-high with a F redraw and gut SF redraw. Most other times I would have been very unlikely to get value in that situation, especially under the pump OOP.

      Its something I have been working on (letting 87s go) with varying degrees of success.
