All In On Three Pair

Thanksgiving Day with the family recap to come, but one episode must be told immediately. We (that is, Southern Man, his two older kids, his brother, and his sister) commenced to playin' some serious Texas Hold'em after lunch. OK, not that serious; the buy-in was just five bucks. But, still, that's real money on the table. At any rate, one member of the family was a bit fuzzy on the rules (best five-card hand with the seven cards you have) and went all in on three pair. Three pair? Well, sorry, but you can't have three pair in a five-card hand. The look on his / her face when he / she was informed of this error was...priceless. And, no, the highest two pair he / she had wasn't quite enough.

What's even funnier is that this player had the most chips and so survived this error, and then went on to place third and got his / her five bucks back. On the other hand, Southern Man got taken to school and was the first one out. So Southern Man was a total loser but at least he didn't go all in on three pair.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Sounds like you had a great time -- I guess it's too much to hope that your mad skillz at Texas Hold'em will win you the funds for a new car?

Also, I was tempted to read your review of Casino Royale but I'm holding off until I see it. It's not showing in HK, and I don't feel like paying double the price when I swing back through I guess I'll comment after I get back to NYC. Any other movie recommendations?
