Royal #3
I've said it before and I will say it again, never in my life have I had a run like the one I continue to have on PartyPoker. It's sick. Just sick. This is my 3rd Royal Flush ever and my first on Party Poker. I may not have played the hand in the best way possible, but what a result!

I called pre-flop figuring he was making a loose raise with position. When the flop hit I chose to check and see if I could get a free turn. When he bet, I thought if he whiffed the flop and was just making a continuation bet I could take it away right there with a semi-bluff. If he called me, I thought I might get a free river out of the deal. When he re-raises me the odds dictate that I have to call, so I do. When I hit the turn I really don't like my check. If I was correct in my original line that the re-raise would buy me a free river, then a check here would just lead to a check from my opponent and it would be tougher to get all the money in. The only reason I did check the turn is that he still had the betting lead with his re-raise so I figured he might try to bluff the diamond. I was right, but it was risky. Once he bet 50$ there, I figured he was commited so I just stuck it in.
