A tournament player yesterday showed how to play the mighty deuce-four. He limped under the gun,
That drove out the other limpers and tricked the big blind into calling with his pitiful ♠A ♣A. The flop was predictable in that it included two 4s, and the trips held up to bust the aces. The only shock was that a 2 didn't also come to complete the full house.
The lesson is not to slow play a powerhouse. Build a pot, then take it down.
