A player in early position raises to 1,200, and Ralph Macri defends in the big blind.

The flop comes 9♠42. Macri checks, his opponent bets 3,500, and Macri calls.

The turn is the 2.  Macri checks again, his opponent bets 6,000, and Macri moves all in.  His opponent asks the dealer to pull in the 6,000, and eyes Macri's remaining 13,000. The players then looks at his chips, which total around 9,000, and moves them forward to put himself at risk.

Macri quickly turns over 102♠ for trip twos, and his opponent shows K♠K♣ for two pair.

The player needs to improve on the river, but unfortunately the river is the A♠, and the players stands up from his chair and walks away from the table.

"You should put in the blog that sometimes Ralph gets luck," one of the players not involved in the hand says jokingly to the blog staff standing near the table.

"You should put in there, 'Sometimes bad things DON'T happen to good people,'" Macri responds with a smile.
