Marcel Gets Royal Flush in Poker
Incredibly, Marcel got a natural royal flush in Texas hold-em Friday evening. He received a KQ of hearts down, the turn came up with a 10 J, and the last card turned up was an A. He only won $2 on the hand because several players who had dropped out peeked over at his cards and could not contain themselves. W has never encountered a natural royal flush in a seven card natural game in his entire poker career, so this was fairly significant. W hopes that Marcel does not begin to believe that royal flushes are common.
