Nice hand

I just got back from a game of poker. Not that I actually played in the game, but it was fun to sit back and watch everybody. So I thought I'd put up a poker hand.

I know next to nothing about poker, but I know about Chris Moneymaker. Aside from having that name, he's written a book about playing that I've taken a look through. He managed to get into the World Series of Poker in 2003 by winning a $40 online tournament, and once there, he rode quite a wave, besting a few of his heroes. Then he got to play against Phil Ivey, who makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year at the tables and is known as the Tiger Woods of poker.

Watch how one of these two was eliminated.
