Mississippi Flush

Most of the readers of this little blog are well versed in poker. They know what beats what, which hands to play from different positions at the table, what your odds are of hitting a draw and whether the pot is giving you those odds.

If you ask any of them what is the best hand in poker, they would tell you a Royal Flush.

And they would be wrong.

The best hand in poker is a "Mississippi Flush."

"What is a Mississippi Flush?" you may ask.

Well, today is your lucky day! Not only are you going to learn what it is, you're also gonna get to hear some Texas Country from one of the old timers of the genre, Ray Wylie Hubbard.

RWH was born in Oklahoma, but got to Texas as fast as he could (1954). After 60 years in the Lone Star State, he has earned his citizenship card. He may not be the best vocalist you've ever heard, but the man knows his way around a six string.
