Really? You had a 7 high, flopped 3 spades, got called all in, and didn't think that you might really be beat? I get the flopped flush, but an all-in bet is either a very stupid bluff (with 3 spades on the board) or you're beat. I think I might not have had the guts to call that one like you did. How sweet would the straight flush have been though? Just not probable. This was a fun post. Keep 'em coming.

That may all be true Chris (and it is, see title). But, anyone know the ODDS of flopping a flush in a 3 way hand and coming in third?
