    Hi guys,
    I thought I could share some experiences of a tournament i played at my local casino on monday.
    It was a quiet small tournament for just 100 bucks.
    The structure was pretty fast so there was not that much room to play. It's fine though.
    So once I opened KJhh UTG+1 and got called. The pot was like 1k when the flop of 5x 3x 10h hit. I checked he checked. The turn was the Ah giving me a royal flush draw. I led out for like 1.2k and got called relativly quickly. You may guess it but the river was the Qh giving me the royal. I bet 2.1k and got called from a river two pair with Q5xx. It was my second royal flush in my life and the first one live.
    But I somehow, someway they were coming up with funky ass rule that I was not allowed to take a picture! :wink:

    I ended up winning the tournament choping 4way for 1.3k each. I was given the win because they thought I should have it because I played well. The fact that I am like 20 to 40 years younger then them may also have been a factor. haha

    Overall a fun night I guess.
    Ps: I know my english is not the best sorry for that.

    Have a nice one

    congrats. Did you get anything extra for taking 1st, even though you chopped four ways?

    Always nice when you can get a pot with a Royal. I had one in a local game, flopped it, but no one else hit anything, so I got the blinds and the preflop calls.

    Congrats on the Royal flush. I can't remember ever having a Royal, but I can remember several straight flushes.
    Pretty rare.

    No but thats fine. Because on the final table they played like nits for an hour so the blinds were 4k/8k with 4 players left with an overall amount of 340k chips in play. It was more of like a nice touch. :)
