Welcome back, Mr Zen

Here's my first STT after a break. I've played a few bits of HORSE and the like with absolutely no luck, but check this:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to FR Vessant [2h 2s]

jimvski: folds
bishopdog1: folds
W0lfgang72 is disconnected
W0lfgang72 is connected
W0lfgang72: folds
KayP17: folds
shrume72: folds
CoreyKTK: calls 20
FR Vessant: calls 10

Could fold with this, but might as well see whether I can hit a set.

zitov1: checks
*** FLOP *** [2d Qd Ac]

There's my set. Drawy board though so I pot it.

FR Vessant: bets 60
zitov1: folds
CoreyKTK: calls 60
*** TURN *** [2d Qd Ac] [Kc]

Hmmm. Well, I'd have to be fairly unlikely to be beat on that board. JT is not likely to have called a bet on the flop.

FR Vessant: bets 120
CoreyKTK: raises 120 to 240

Hmmm. Well, his range probably has a lot of aces, and KQ is definitely in there. Adxd also might have waited till the turn.

FR Vessant: raises 320 to 560

Better not scare him off. I'm clearly going to stack off here.

CoreyKTK: raises 320 to 880
FR Vessant: raises 480 to 1360 and is all-in

No, let's do it for all our money.

CoreyKTK: calls 480
*** RIVER *** [2d Qd Ac Kc] [8s]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
FR Vessant: shows [2h 2s] (three of a kind, Deuces)
CoreyKTK: shows [Jd Td] (a straight, Ten to Ace)
