One of those poker situations

So, you have a king-ten suited and someone raises you all-in with Ace Ace King on the board. You fold, right? Well, this is what happens:

I'm the chicken on the bottom.

Ok, geek. What are the odds.

Fantastic name. :-)

Hope all is well, my friend. I understand we'll be seeing you in Seattle for the wedding!

(Also, I keep failing the captcha. Either it's a terrible Turing test, or I'm less human than I thought.)

Ha! I didn't even notice the name.

Wundervoll, Dr. Strangelove!

I think the odds are in the range of 1 in 2000 just that, given the situation, those cards would come on the turn and the river. But the odds that you will find yourself in the situation are much lower.

The truly ironic thing is that if I had called with my mediocre hand, I would have been way ahead of the field anyway.

I love Dr. Strangelove. I developed a bit of an obsession with nuclear war during my high school debate days. Eventually I found out this movie said pretty much all I wanted to say about nuclear war. But funny.
