Joe Gibbons asked for luck since he’s been running bad.  Shortly after I wished him good luck, he flopped a wheel with his suited A5 on a board of 4 3 2.  He thought his luck had changed and was happy to get his chips in the middle.

Then he saw his opponent had 65 suited for the higher straight.  His luck returned, however, when a 6 hit the river, resulting in a split pot.

Half a pot is better than sitting on the rail!
