Can you hook that up to a metal detector?
Think of the possibilities?
Oh, man, that would just suck, lol. Draw the hand of a lifetime and not be able to win big.
Trust me, he was not a happy camper.
If only there were cellphones back then, I might have captured the moment.
I think the other player who stayed in, had three of a kind or a straight.
When the guy plopped that royal, a lot of jaws dropped.
Actually, that happens a lot, get a great hand, nobody calls. Most large pots are won on two pair, or a set......some with a "blank".
That may be so, but given how infrequently a player has a Royal Flush, it *should* pay off handsomely. Perhaps a new house rule is in order.
I agree! In low ball poker in Calif. some card rooms offered a progressive pool that was won when you got beat with a 6-4.....someone had a wheel. I would on rare occasion get a 6-4, and pray someone hit a wheel.
The pool money was usually a very high amount. They could just have a progressive pool that paid on a royal.
Some casino poker rooms have a 4-kind, straight flush and royal flush bonus.
WSOP poker starts up again at The Rio.
I knew a guy, I believe he was out of Chicago area, who used to go to vegas 12-20 times a year to play poker to earn his living.
He repeatedly told me he only played with the Miami beach seniors and the college kids , and that was how he made his living.
(I always wondered as a professional card player, did the casino offer him a dental and medical plan)
I lost touch with him after years.
He always said the money they brought with them, especially the Miami beach crew who thought they were the greatest card players, was a nice bankroll and it didn't upset them if they lost, they were there to play and naturally try to win.
If you want to see real skilled gamblers, head over to the Rio.
I might go myself to check it out. A regular World Series. Anyone and everyone claiming poker skills will be found here.
Have you ever thought about playing in a satellite tournament to try and win a seat in the main WSOP event?
----A Question and Other Poker Nonsense----
what am i missing here? i have to be not knowing something.
what is "$1/2 seven card stud"? when i looked at this i was thinking $1 ante, $2 bets (also thinking, gee, that's not much of a fun game...lol)
but that cannot be right...if that were the rules the "$100" the royal guy won would have been an extraordinarily large pot...even with 9 bad players who all stayed in the whole way the pot does not reach a hun without raises.
so i am thinking this must be a no limit game or something...right?
'pilot has it right too...so often when i get a flop that is damn near the nuts, everyone drops out!
ok, ok, i know you will find this texas hold-em poker story hard to believe but i swear it is true:
one time i had pocket kings and an ace did not show on the board.
no, no, no, really i swear it is true.
i always hated "wild card" games but as a callow yute (talking starting maybe 11-12 yo here) in our penny (literally) ante, 10 cent (later 25 cent) games up at the 4-lane bowling alley there were always babies who wanted to play these toy games...
i pretty much insisted that a natural straight flush should beat a wild straight flush--even of higher cards--and this was in fact instituted as a rule in our group.
-g. geist: those pocket kings...
--tom p: yaas?
---g. geist: peoples'll balieve you...
----tom p: hoz that?
-----g. geist: well that doesn't happen to OTHER players
------tom p: oh.
--------tom p: right.
----------tom p: i forgot
------------tom p: my problem is i love texas hold-em...
--------------tom p: it's just that i'm so damn piss-poor at it.
I used to play some poker with friends...decades ago. I would get my ass kicked in poker in these environments of today.
An everyday poker occurrence happened in the movie where Mr. Bond took down hands of four aces, four kings and a full boat with his inside draw to a straight flush, of course winning a handsome sum.
Ah, but which Bond do you refer to?
Pretty sure it was the newest JB, whose name I do not know.
Wasn't it in Casino Royale?
OK so I didn't remember the hands correctly, but yea, that's it.
It was no limit, as far as my dodgy memory serves me. Back then a buck was more significant, than it is now. At least it was to me, and the other chumps at the table. I was there for 6 hours or more, but saw several full houses, flushes, and at least one 4 of a kind. Maybe the dealer was crooked?
Nice pot! I wonder if James turned that in to Moneypenny?
If I were to do that and win a seat....I would sell it! Automatically getting in the money!
I consider my self a fair to middlin poker player....but most of those boys and girls would shear my wool in a heartbeat....but maybe not, I could get insanely lucky...out of a jillion players.
