    PROFITABLE POKER NIGHT FOR UK HOUSEWIFE

    Put down a quid, pull out GBP 258 000 on one hand of poker!

    Warehouse worker Anne Taylor (48) earns GBP 200 a week at a plant in the Yorkshire industrial city of Leeds, UK but after a stunning poker win at Napoleons Casino in the midlands city this week she may be moving up.

    The skilled....and lucky poker player walked away from a game with GBP 258 982 after one hand and 15 minutes, competing for a pot which has built up over three years and was offered to the first player dealt a royal flush.

    The mother of two, who had visited the casino for a little entertainment with her husband Robert, bought into the game for GBP 1 and found she had been dealt a hand with the 10, jack, queen, king and ace of hearts.

    She said yesterday: "I was staggered. I had to keep checking the cards for a mistake. I put them down and that was it. I'd won. I was shaking."

    Taylor says the windfall will be invested for her retirement, although a celebratory trip to Las Vegas has not been ruled out. "I will probably have a go on the poker tables out there but you won't catch me gambling it all," she said.

    Was this some sort of Royal flush bonus or on the "casino Stud poker" game with a progressive meter. (Similar to "Caribbean Stud poker" casino game in Vegas.)

    I have never seen live poker rooms with a Royal flush bonus progressive and it would never get that high surely!!

    I think it was Stud Poker with a progessive jackpot that most of the UK B&M casinos offer now.

    A dealt royal is about a 643,000 to one shot. Off the top of my head, if there are as many as 5 tables running full (7 spots) about 1/3 of the time at about 2 minutes per hand for a year, that would be a little under a 1/2 million hands per year. Needing almost 1.5 million hands to hit a royal isn't statistically outrageous and I've been pretty generous with guessing at how many hands/year are dealt.

    Ahhhh, and here I was thinking you were being disparaging about a woman poker player who, as far as either of us know, could be a skilled and experienced player as well as being extremely fortunate.

    I thought you were being a bit dog-in-the-manger, actually.

    I say good luck to the girl - a very nice windfall.
