Quad Jacks Not Good Enough
Since there were only six of us, we were able to add 7 card stud and Mexican sweat to the rotation in this $20 buy-in, dealer's choice, limit game.
I thought I had the High Hand Jackpot wrapped up when I rivered quad jacks with an ace kicker in Omaha high. But with seven minutes to go before we shut down the game, J-Dawg took it away from me when he hit the magical Royal Flush on the river when the jack of diamonds hit the board. It was almost worth losing the jackpot just to see a royal!
I still ended the night $10 to the good. J-Dawg won the most, cashing out for $45. The other four players left with lighter wallets with Farmer Harry getting hurt the worst, dropping $17, Dealer Larry lost $10, with Stamps down $5, and Ray-Ray $3.
Another fun night on the felt, but I sure miss playing online.
Till next time, win the flips.
