Squeezed

This was the weirdest and toughest hand I've played in a while. A few things to consider:

USCPhildo is one of the better tournament players, but not known as a cash player. I'd never seen him play cash before, and his presence was one of the reasons I decided to sit at an otherwise tough table. Generally speaking, the tournament players are known for overplaying hands. He was very active throughout the session and involved in lots of big pots.

Checkmate is a strong regular with a strong regular style.
RolandThetrault is one of the best players I have ever seen at 10-20.

Throughout this session I had not reraised a single time preflop. The hand before I had shown down a smoothcalled AK after winning a big pot vs Phildo's KQ on KT33x.

Interesting hand, although I think you left your readers hanging.

Descriptions of the players before posting the hand was great.

How about a little post hand analysis?

What do you think they had?

Did you have any thoughts on one of the "weirdest and toughest" hands you've played in awhile?

Checkmate folded instantly, he obviously had no pair, anything from 74s to AKs. Phildo had a pair but the question is what pair. KK and JJ seem most likely, the way he was playing I could see it being TT or 99 though. If he had AK I give him credit for playing it really well. I think I may have folded the best hand but I dunno if I made a mistake on any street.
