      river go all in on river :D just because its the royal flush !

      3bet preflop! I dont know how you do it in NL as im an FL player but cold calling AQs is definitely too tight and passive

      as played

      bet flop !

      raise bigger on river. preferably all in just because you hit the royal flush ;)

      and it is quite a success story indeed. :)

      I myself have only gotten 5 royal flushes in my life so far in Fixed Limit over 500k+ hands. always exciting to get a Royal Flush.
