Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Royal Shulman

There isn't much to complain about when you get dealt a royal flush. After all, it's best possible hand in poker. However, when you play in a limit holdem event, you might be wishing you picked up the royal in a no-limit game.

The player who ended up with the royal flush was Jeff Shulman. The hand started when an early position player opened and Shulman called in the big blind, holding {a-Spades}{k-Spades}. The {j-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop would see Shulman check-call a bet from his opponent. Both players then checked the {q-Diamonds} turn and the {q-Spades} hit the river. This time Shulman would lead and his opponent called and then of course mucked when he saw the strength of Shulman's hand.
