Paying poker Saturday night:
Two guys were betting back and forth. The board read: K-7-K-7-X. First guy had a King, second guy had a 7. When they started to push it to the first guy, the second guy said: "I had a full house."
The dealer showed him the other guy had a bigger full house. Then she said: "Your house was in the wrong neighborhood."
Heard at the table:
Q: "How do you have safe sex?"
A: "Make sure her husband is out of town."
Blinds were 100/200/25 and I raised from late position to 600 before the flop - both blinds called. The flop was: ♦Q ♦7 ♦4.
They checked to me and i bet 1325 and the small blind called. The turn was the ♣4. SB checked and I bet 1325 again. The SB had ♦A ♦J and moved all in. I snap called.
"Do you have a boat?" the SB asked.
Instead of answering, I simply turned over ♠4 ♥4 for turned quads.
The lady next to me said, "Nice hand." The she inanely added, "And you didn't have to worry because nobody could have a higher set of quads."
Um, whatever. She's right that there was no pair on the board other than the 4s. The day I have quads and start worrying about somebody having higher quads will be the day I take up tiddlywinks.
