I Can Die Now

I'm a poker player and all around degenerate gambler. Gambling's a vice, but it's my vice. That and drinking. Lately I've been playing online at Party Poker. A big sea full of fish. If I could stop being such a maniac, I'd probably do better, but that's another story.

So I'm playing a little low-limit hold'em tonight and the following ensues:

$0.5/$1 Hold'em - Friday, February 18, 21:59:12 EDT 2005
Table Onight time (Real Money)
Seat 5 is the button

Yes, you read that right, I was dealt a Royal Flush. My poker life is complete. Now if only I could start winning a little more...

Maybe if you played higher limits you'd win more money? Killer hand though!
