Some friends and I were playing poker the other night, when out of no where one of the best hands was dealt to both of us at the same time. We were shocked and both had bet extremely aggressively believing we had winning hands. The result was amazing. See if you can tell what the hands were by looking at the picture below…

It’s kind of hard to tell, but after an aggressive betting exchange both my friend and I matched each others hands. The river had a pair of 10s and a 7, 2, and King. Both of us had a 10 and a 7 making this hand a split pot of full houses. Both of us having three 10s and two 7s sevens. Quite extraordinary if you ask me. I’m sure it’s not the most amazing thing ever, but it is certainly pretty cool :) The odds of getting a full house are 1 in 694. So, if my math is correct, it would be 1 in 481,636 (which is 694 power of 2). lovely, just lovely.
