Friday Night Poker

I won $21 at poker tonight! One-two Texas Hold 'Em.

My biggest pot came early in the game, when three of us -- out of a table of seven -- stayed in through the end and kept raising each other. Turned out we each had a full house, but mine was the strongest. Still, three players with full houses? I imagine that doesn't happen very often. Bad beats for the other two.

You're probably wondering what the key to my success is. It's simple. Everyone else at the table drinks beer all night and gets sloppy. Me, I stick with Diet Coke throughout!
