re: Poker & Winning Hand
When I think back there are two that really stick out and I wasn't in one of them. I was at Stars one night and I was first one to call big blind and did so with A-10 suited. By the time it got back to me 3 people are all-in. I fold. Next thing I know 6 people are in. When there cards are reveled I still can't believe what I was looking at. I saw 6 pocket pairs. Aces, Kings, Jacks, Nines, Eights, And Twos. The best part of watching this hand was seeing A/K/2 on the flop, J on 4th, and the fourth deuce on the river. Now that one will stick to you. I think I posted a thread about this in this section somewhere.
The winning hand that I'll never forget was at a family game for Thanksgiving about 5 years ago. I was dealt 7J of spades. I remember my dad and uncles bitching about how I didn't know what I was doing and should not be playing and losing my money. I don't remember the hand specifics, but when it was over I had my first Strait Flush 7 to J and won about $22. I think the reason this sticks out the most is the fact that I shut my family up with that one hand.
