Royally Flushed
Here's how I went out of a recent 50+5 SnG on Stars. It's the first time I've been beat by a hand this big, so I thought the event was worth chronicling.

SB showed 9♥ Q♦ and won t4030 with a Royal Flush
I was happy with my play here as I got all my money in when I was a pretty big favourite. I figured him for the straight and I felt my flush was good. I was right and I lost. C'est la poker.
