Coolest Hand in a Long Time

Online Poker | estimated reading time
2010. September 22.
An extraordinary hand was dealt at <em>FTP</em>'s $40/$80 NLHE 6-max table, where <em>'Sauce1234'</em> and <em>'AAROOKIE' </em>played a very interesting game that&nbsp; even <strong>Phil Galfond</strong>, experienced pro commented on his twitter as <em>"One of the coolest HHs I've seen in a while".</em>
Ben 'Sauce1234' Sulsky started with $33,739 while AAROOKIE had $42,479. Two others folded, then a player (who is not Daniel Negreanu) 'KidPoker705' raised to $178 from the button. This is where it started to become interesting:

Sauce1234 (sb) raises to $680
AAROOKIE (bb) raises to $1,840
KidPoker705 folds
Sauce1234 raises to $5,127
AAROOKIE raises to $9,055
Sauce1234 calls

FLOP: {#}A{#}8{#}2 (pot $18,288)
Sauce1234 checks
AAROOKIE bets $6,650
Sauce1234 calls

TURN: {#}A{#}8{#}2{#}Q (pot $31,588)
Both players check.

RIVER: {#}A{#}8{#}2{#}Q{#}4 (pot $31,588)
Sauce1234 goes all-in for $18,704
AAROOKIE calls

Showdown:
Sauce1234: {#}9 {#}6

AAROOKIE: {#}6 {#}4
AAROOKIE takes the $67,734 (846bb) pot with his rivered pair of 4's.
