Top pair.. Although it would have been best if one guy had a full house, another had the lesser full house, and someone else made a flush :)

And I wish the poker sites would ring a bell or something when you get a straight flush that way I'm not staring at it for 30 seconds asking myself "is that what i think it is?"

It's good when you get a straight flush. It's even better when you win a lot of profit with it. Nice job!:)

Yeah right. :p
Gee, what are you trying to say?? ;)

I've never heard about a site ringing a bell for you, but many sites I've seen offer an option in their poker client to actually call your hand for you. Mostly used by newbies while learning to read the board, but I actually like it for exactly what you are talking about.

btw...very nice hand. Great job.

It's always good when another marklar has a good marklar, that's not quite as good as your marklar. Most marklars won't give up a marklar as good as top 2pair, especially online. But, the marklar in this case should have definitely been afraid of the marklar or the marklar, to raise a marklar-sized bet on the river was horrible.

Oh well, you made some nice marklar off some stupid marklar.

yes that was a stupid call by that marklar because those marklars shoudl have been folded after the first marklar bet 5 marklars,

I was kind of dissapointed really... I dont have much of a story, i cant say i beat quads or a full house with a straight flush i can only say i beat a pair of queens with a straight flush... Doesnt sound as good that way.
