And when all else fails.. run good!

I was pottering along playing two table of 20EUR NL, doing ok - up 1/2 a BI on each table when these hands happened:

On the second table, my hand conversion failed. I held TT, raised UTG and called a three bet and shortstack shove (slightly over the three bet). Four players saw a flop of 377. Another short stack bets all-in, and I minraise enough to put the last guy in - he calls.

First shorty show KK, second shorty shows 88, and the bigger stack shows A7! Not so goood for our hero. Turn comes 3, and the river a miraculous T to take down a nearly 40EUR pot.

Not sure the Check on the Turn was just running good - wp.

Thanks, but I guess the chips were going in with A5 anyway. What he was doing calling a preflop three bet is another question!
