I realize my audience for this post will be quite narrow but I have to share it nonetheless. If you’re not a poker player, you probably know one. Share the following story, they’ll appreciate it.
I am an avid poker player, mostly at the casino. Tuesday night my father and I went to play and stayed only for about five and a half hours (I’ve been known to play for ten or more hours). During the session I hit quads (four of a kind) three times, each while holding a pocket pair: 10s, 3s, and 6s. The player across from me caught quads while holding a single 5. And the player to my left caught a 10 high straight flush by hitting the inside 9 of hearts.
All on the same table within the span of five and a half hours.
