      You need the background to this: I was concentrating on another table - tricky flop situation - when I noticed I had pocket 8s on this one. But I saw that I was in a marginal spot to raise (i.e. not LP) and seeing the other limpers convinced me so I decided to fold rather than have to play another tricky flop.

      Once I'd dealt with the play on the first table, I glanced back only to see that if I'd bet I would have landed trip 8s on the flop for a full house. I was just winding up for a good curse when I saw MP2 flip over his hand...

      Wow. Quad 5s. I have to admit I was lmao watching poor BB staring at his cracked straight. Sometimes, I really love this game...
