Correction on my post yesterday, for the 2 pair scoring. Scoring would be 2 points + 5 points old = 7 points, not 8 points. Total would then be 248, not 249. Just noticed that one. <_<

It doesn't look good for finding that 2nd round royal flush. Allot of missing BM's out there when trying to complete that hand. I do have one more shot at it on Sunday, but don't know if I want to miss the big NFL game-Pats-Colts. My daughter's birthday tomorrow so no benchmark hunting on Saturday.

Came up short this morning for one last run at the 2nd round royal. I had quite a few extra discs that I didn't get to use for hands, but at least logged allot of FTF's on this journey. This poker run took to me to allot of beautiful countryside that I otherwise would probably would have never got a chance to see. ;)
