      Nice 1 Alan883

      it's a great feeling holding a royal hand,

      In my first 9 months of ever playing poker :
      (only been playing just under a year now)

      First 1 i ever saw, was when my AA pockets (which then became TRIPS
      post flop) got the £$%* kicked out of them in a NL MTT by a Diamonds ROYAL

      Second 1 i saw, i was holding in NL MTT 9 seat table :D Diamonds ROYAL

      Third 1 i saw, i was holding in Omaha PL 10 seat table Diamonds Royal

      Forth 1 i saw, i was playing on a NL MTT 6 seat table and the guy next to me hit a ROYAL spades this time and that was the first spade Royal i have seen

      Hope u all get plenty ;)

      Well done alan, may your run continue

      Well mathematically speaking your only supposed to hit one Royale every 200k hands so Im not suprised you havent hit it yet.

      well the point is not about that, the point is that my friend got 4 of these just within 30k hands. Talk about luck.. altho' I hit straight flush pretty often..
