Ha they haven't been playing with my mates then

It is amazing how often 4 of a kind turns up

Now the truly clever one was when there were 8 of a kind turned up in the same hand....imagine that

The one that cheats worst looses apparently

I have now converted them to texas holdem and it has all stopped

I'm pretty sure they mean like four of a kind such as four 4's, or queens, etc.
