      I am gradually moving from NL10 BSS to NL20 BSS. My BR is more than adequate I just need to get comfortable with having twice the cash on the table so I am replacing 1 NL10 table with a NL20 table at a time.

      I had 3 NL20 tables up today for the first time and had this hand on the 3rd one :-

      Cassava Poker $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em - 10 players - View hand 472486

      Hero (MP2): $21.03
      MP3: $30.02
      CO: $5.68
      BTN: $20.72
      SB: $26.80
      BB: $25.36
      UTG: $17.60
      UTG+1: $20.00
      UTG+2: $24.00
      MP1: $3.80

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is MP2 with A :club: A :spade:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.80, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.80, SB calls $0.70, BB calls $0.60

      Happy days I got the bullets so I raise - not sure about the 3 callers mind but we get to see a flop -

      Flop: ($3.20) 5 :heart: 2 :club: 9 :heart: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $2, BTN folds, SB calls $2, BB calls $2

      Nice but for the 2 hearts so I bet out just under 2/3rds pot and at least I get rid of the button so I have position but there are still 2 to get rid of!

      Turn: ($9.20) 2 :diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $3.20, Hero raises to $7, SB calls $7, BB raises to $22.56, Hero calls $11.23 all in, SB calls $15.56

      bb bets out so I raise to let him know that this is my pot, but then the sb calls - whats he doing here still ? - then that bb shoves all his cash into MY pot - so I close my eyes and click all in - I have to get all my cash in too - and then the sb does the same!

      I dread to think what they have and by now my sphincters are tightly closed and if I had a god I would probably be praying to him cause I'm scared - there is more in the pot than I started with on the 3 NL20 tables combined!!!!!!

      River: ($72.55) 5 :club: (3 players - 1 is all in)

      Final Pot: $72.55
      Hero shows A :club: A :spade:
      SB shows K :heart: 8 :heart:
      BB shows J :diamond: J :club:
      Hero wins $60.70
      BB wins $8.23
      (Rake: $3.62)

      I finally manage to convince myself to open my eyes and YES !!!!! I WIN !!!!

      My biggest pot yet!

      I punch the air and then let out a massive sigh of relief lol.

      My BR finally gets over $700 after a lot of bouncing around between $^50 and $680.
