More proof that presto is gold

It's not gold merely for this mostly silent blogger.

I wasn't in love with this hand on the flop, so I opted to call the half-pot lead in position since my opponent was able to bet here with high wraps (KJTx, JT8x, etc), aces, as well as middle set of nines (I could discount top set since I was holding a queen) and I wanted to re-evaluate on the turn and potentially run a bluff if he checked to me. Needless to say all the money went in on the turn as my opponent led out again and wasn't able to get away from middle set, to my great glee and profit.

Presto almost never seems to work for me. I have much better luck with 7-7 and 9-9. Strangely enough, my snowmen rarely catch a brother on the flop ...
