Skill vs Luck

I have to say ‘fair play’ to Inferno for soundly beating me up on that hand – at no point did I suspect even a flush, let alone a straight flush (unsurprisingly at odds of 72192:1).

But I am a big enough man to say ‘Well Done!’ …

You lucky son of a bitch 😛

    My best hand ever. Thanks for going all in with your puny little straight 🙂

    No but seriously, I enjoyed this particular game very much, even if you had my hand and vice versa. It’s just one of those games where it hurts to lose, but when seeing the outcome it doesn’t matter anymore.

    Thanks again 🙂

    It still hurts 🙂

    But you can’t deny the better player won that time. You slow played me like a pro. There were some good games, some truly appalling ones and some really, really well played ones. This was defiantly ( 🙂 ) the latter.

    At least I have bowling to console myself with 😛
