I'm sitting on $600 and to my left is the big stack (BigS) with $1300. He has been playing throughout the night. He was approaching 20 consecutive hours at the table! To my right, a $300 stack, who is very loose (VL) and doesn't shy away from calling. He sat down and burnt through his first buy-in. But, he was able to get back to even after catching some good cards.
All three of us are in mid position. I'm dealt A♥,10♥ and bet $12. BigS and VL both called. Flop comes down A♣,10♣,7♣ and I bet $30. They both call. Turn is a 4♣ and we all check. River is a 9♠. VL checks.
Now it's my turn, what to do? I checked and BigS checked. VL folded. I showed my two pair and BigS flipped over 9♦,9♥! That's right, none of us were holding a club and I got rivered.
