      Took me 3 years of online poker and 5 years of real life poker.

      I am very happy about this and my weekend will be awesome just because of that.

      I can finally say I am a true poker player :D

      For some reason I feel like I should of got that llooooong time ago. So weird that it tooks me so long. I had so many straight flushes and quads :\.

      Doesn't count unless you use both cards from your hand imo. :f_biggrin:

      If he did it live with 2 holecards, you need to do it in draw!
      Show him his isn't nearly cool enough!

      It's pretty standard not to see a royal flush @ live even after 5 years of playing, but 3 years online is quite a long time = how much volume do you put in?

      Two weeks ago, in a house game 50/1 NLHE, my old boss hit a Royal Flush with AJd in her hand on the turn. We all stared at it like it was some alien being... Equal parts awe and total disbelief!

      Yeah, and I had in the same casino one week before you a royal flush as well. I think the casino is rigged ;)

      It's hard to say. Sometimes I go into intense grinding session (cash game) I have more than 5000 SnG and Mtts played on different site. Now since i play super turbos I put a lot more volume than before...that's probably why I saw it.
