Played poker tonight and won $125. No spectacular hands but one reminded me how luck is good.

Playing 5 card hi-low draw, I had a pair of jacks. The first round of betting was $5 and I called. (I'm not all that enamored of pairs but in hi-low, you gotta see the draws.) Anyhow, one guy stood pat and I drew 3. Now, in high only, pat hands scare me. Not so much if I'm going high in hi-low. I drew 3 card...another jack and a pair of nines, full house. After the draw the pat guy kept raising and I kept re-raising. Turned out he had a straight to the eight. My full boat beat him...so did a lower low.

Sometimes its luck not skill.
