Royal Flush 2008

This is a follow up to The Royal Flush Phenomenon; all the screengrabs here are Royal Flushes from 2008 dealt on various sites.


Easter Day, 2008: A Royal Flush on CryptoLogic.

I wasnít able to capture the one dealt me on Full Tilt, February 10 (London time), but I did download the hand, which appears after the photos. All but this one are in chronological order. The fact that so many are Omaha is due both to the fact that I was playing a lot of Omaha at the time and also because by its nature, Omaha results in more power hands than any other variation of poker, barring those using wild cards - which I have yet to see played on-line, because they are silly!


April 23, 2008: Yet another Royal Flush, an Omaha cash game as usual. Because players have in effect 9 cards, some very powerful hands come out at Omaha all the time.


May 8, 2008: A Royal Flush in an Omaha cash game on InterPoker.


May 9, 2008: Auntie hits a Royal Flush on William Hill.


May 24, 2008: A Royal Flush in an Omaha Hi-Lo cash game on Betsafe.


July 10, 2008: Auntie his a Royal Flush in a low limit cash game.


July 11, 2008: Auntie his a Royal Flush in a low limit cash game. Two days in a row on the same site!

October 22, 2008: A Royal Flush in a cash game on William Hill.


October 27, 2008: A Royal Flush on Mansion Poker. As this was hi-lo, I have a feeling I won only half the pot!
