On the button with 8d8h. Two limps in front I raise 3x and both call.

Flop is 8s8cQs. First to act goes all in. Second goes all in. I push my chips to the center while they both try to draw dead.

Did this need a thread ? Nope. But damn it feels sooooo damn good when about once a year you flop the absolute nutter butters and don't have to do a single thing to get maximum value.

I think your raise was good but I do not know how the table plays. Too much of a raise would push 'em out. After the flop it was just too easy!!!!!

I've had three hands like this in 2015. 7777, 8888, QQQQ. Flopped two of them and got the Q on the turn once. I was lucky everytime as another player had a boat and could not get away. Nothing sucks more than flopping quads and everyone else has junk.

Beware of the QQ hand that hit's the Q on the turn. 8888 = loser. Prolly good for the BBJ though.
