### A Pinch of Zeebo and a Dash of Bugzo

Zeebo's Theorem is considered one of the most reliable theorems in poker. In a nutshell, it states:

Zeebo: No one can ever fold a full house.

My own corollary to Zeebo Theorem is Bugzo, which states:

Here's an example of Zeebo/Bugzo from yesterday's short session I played:

Merge, \$0.50/\$1 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
CO: \$149.80 (149.8 bb)
BTN: \$191.61 (191.6 bb)
SB: \$102 (102 bb)
BB: \$200.75 (200.8 bb)
Hero (UTG): \$159.73 (159.7 bb)
MP: \$101.50 (101.5 bb)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with 5♠5
Hero raises to \$2.87, 4 folds, BB calls \$1.87

Flop: (\$6.24) J♣5♣6♣
(2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets \$4.68, BB calls \$4.68

Turn: (\$15.60) J
(2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets \$11.70, BB calls \$11.70

River: (\$39) A
(2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets \$29.25, BB raises to \$87.75, Hero raises to \$140.48, BB calls \$52.73

Results: \$319.96 pot (\$3.00 rake)
Final Board: J♣5♣6♣JA

BB showed J♠A♠ and won \$316.96 (\$157.23 net)
Hero showed 5♠5♥ and lost (-\$159.73 net)

I was destined to lose money in this cooler-hand, but I think I could have at least saved the \$52.73 on the end by just calling behind. Meh. My original read was the guy was slow playing a flopped flush. Zeebo kept me from folding. Bugzo kept me blind to any other possibilities. Sigh.

All-in for now...
