Well, picture this. It's a juicy $25 NL ring game. I get dealt QQ in early position and raise it to $2. It's small enough to keep four of the suckers in. Flop comes Q72 rainbow. I'm even ahead of the mighty 72o here, so I bet out another $2 trying to entice as many as possible to call me down. Two people call, and the button throws a $10 re-raise out there.
