Kings

 

If you thought 4BR knew how to pick a winner in the brass band contesting world, then it seems it’s all down to the Editor’s ability at Texas hold ‘em Poker…

Good use

Glory

This time he scooped the pot against 50 other players—a full house of a pair of Kings and three two’s raking in the glory, although he won’t be giving up the day job just yet.

Sponsor
