FrankNagaiJr collected 6190 from pot

I just checked the odds, and here's the story:
On the flop - I was the 42.12% underdog. (If NYC had two pair such as A4, then I was the 48.79% underdog, damn near a coin flip.)

When NYC reraised, there was 2100 in the pot, and it costs me 900 to call. If could see both cards for 900, that's a no-brainer call. However, I knew I needed to see both cards to have my outs, so if I put in 2300 more, I either win the pot outright, or I'm paying 2345 to potentially win 6190, which is good enough odds for me, especially since I'm the bigger stack and I can afford to take a chance when I've got decent pot odds.
