Royal Flush

Since poker blogs are a dime a dozen, it is fitting that I post my lame ass Royal Flush. I am playing 1-2 NL on Tilt, hovering a little below my $200 buy in. I have been playing tight, and pretty card dead. My preflop bets are generally getting called by 2-3 people. I open for $7 preflop and get one caller.

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $2 BB (9 handed)

MP3 ($102)
CO ($251)
Button ($189)
SB ($224)
BB ($200)
UTG ($189.90)
Hero ($183)
MP1 ($85.70)
MP2 ($207.85)

Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with Ks, Qs.
1 fold, Hero raises to $7, 1 fold, MP2 calls $7, 5 folds.

Flop: ($17) 7h, Js, Ts (2 players)
Hero bets $12, MP2 calls $12.

Turn: ($41) 6c (2 players)
Hero bets $15, MP2 calls $15.

River: ($71) As (2 players)
Hero bets $45, MP2 calls $45.

Final Pot: $161

Results below:
Hero has Ks Qs (straight flush, ace high).
MP2 has Ah Jh (two pair, aces and jacks).
Outcome: Hero wins $161.

I figured he had the jack, but I thought that I just might get paid off if I managed to hit my draw. I suppose him having top 2 was why he called, maybe I should have bet more on the river. Anyway it is nice to hit a Royal and get paid when there is no progressive.

For the record this is my 4th Royal Flush. My first was in a MTT on Party a couple years ago, then I had a couple playing Omaha (but they dont really count), and then this one.
