So was playing the $3/$6 on PS the other day when this doozy came up. The MP2 player was Loose-Agressive, playing too many pots, and betting hard on everything. if people missed, they would fold and not play back at him. He had gone to the river a few times and shown some marginal hands.
We are 7 handed and he raises to $18, standard 3x raise, the Button calls, and I have QQ in the SB. Raise? Call? I decided to raise to $50 as MP2 could have anything including AJ - Ax, and since the Button just called, I figured he would fold to a raise and had just called with a marginal hand to see the flop.
Let me just say now, I screwed this hand up good and got lucky. Don't think I don't know it!
MP2 raises me to $150, the button folds (as expected) and I go all in and he called...

Hero is SB with Q
, MP2 raises to $18
, 1 fold
, Button calls $18, Hero raises to $60
, 1 fold
, MP2 raises to $150
, Button folds, Hero raises to $783.9
, MP2 calls $225.90 (All-In).
At this point I feel like i screwed up, as he may be LA, but he wouldn't call my all-in without a monster. And I am right, he has AA. But... the poker gods decided to shine on me...

Flopped top set! Here's the sick part... Had I just called the $18, the button would have seen the flop too, and he said after he laid down KK. If I just call, MP2 is first to act and would most likely bet the pot $54. the Button with his KK would def. re-raise, to??? $150? that would make sense, cause a min-raise of $100 is to cheap. At which point I could have re-re-raised (or just called, hard to say right now what I would have done then), but point being that I lost money on this hand (Button's re-raise), by betting him off the hand.
($1183.80) 5 (2 players, 1 all-in)
($1183.80) Q (2 players, 1 all-in)
And just to kick a man when he is down, QUADS just for shits and giggles.
MP2 has Ac Ad (two pair, aces and queens).
Hero has Qc Qs (four of a kind, queens).
Outcome: Hero wins $1183.80.
