    I've had 4 of a kind twice in one night. First 10s, then Aces several hands later. Still waiting on the Royal Flush. If you land one in a Casino, I hear they give you a hat. :eyebrow:

    I've had the royal flush twice, a 10-high straight flush once, and 3 or 4 four-of-a-kinds over the last year. It's always fun to get them, but more often then not, it's of no real use... you usually win bigger pots with ace high or a single pair!

    Best hand i ever played was 4 of a kind... i had 4 jacks after the flop... i checked... no one raised... then turn i checked... so did everyone... river... i check everyone checks except for last person who raises pretty big... i go all in she calls i win:)

    it was very pretty hard keeping it in...

    worse 4 of the kind was... i got full house on flop and no one raised... 4 of the kind came on the turn... on the river i rasied 2 chips (minimum) and everyone folded:(

    PS clay... you are on post 420(0) he he he woohoooo (sorry)

    ...reminds me of an old Gomer Pyle episode.

    Some Poker hustler takes all Sgt. Carter's & Duke's money...Pyle tells the guy that everyone thinks he's a cheat & that no one wants to play him anymore.
    The Hustler then lets Pyle win a bunch & tells him it's all luck.
    The hustler's girlfriend is confused, the hustler sez it's a ploy to take everyone down in one big game.
    In the big game, everyone is dealt a 'pat hand'...the hustler has nothing & must draw 4(he is supposed to end up with 4 Aces).

    Pyle's 'pat hand' is 4 Kings.
    Everyone's money is in.
    Pyle keeps asking Carter if it's a good hand...Carter & Duke say an empahtic "Yes!".
    Pyle asks, "Is it the best hand"?
    They say "No"...and Pyle throws in the 4 Kings because with all that money in there, he wants the best.
    Carter starts yelling "He made a mistake" & the hustler agrees..."What kinda dope throws away 4 Kings"?!?
    Everyone then sees the next 4 off the deck = 4 Aces.
