Diamond Poker EMU - Reveal

This game will fit in snugly on the 19th.

If you're new to EMU then here's how it works:

- I will ask you 4 questions
- You PM me an answer for each question
- You get 1 point for your answer and 1 additional point for each person who gives the same answer as you
- Highest Score wins

This sounds like sheep I hear you say. Well here's the difference:

- If you give the highest scoring answer for every question then your score gets reduced to zero!

tl;dr - You only want to sheep 3 out of 4 questions and you still want a decent score for the other one.

The Questions
1. Name a poker book
2. Name a movie with some poker in it
3. Name a variant of poker other than No Limit Hold'em
4. Name a really good hand to have in No Limit Hold'em

RESEARCH ALLOWED
PM ME YOUR ANSWERS IN AN UNNUMBERED LIST

altonacke, AlwaysFolding and I pretty much answered the last one the same but had varying levels of specifics, thus costing us the W.

Great work!

What was the winning combo? And what's the most you could've gotten in hindsight?

Re: Poker EMU - Reveal

I hate the supposed difference between straight flush and royal flush. It's pointless.
You may as well specify that broadway is better than a straight.
We all know it is, but it doesn't need its own category.

Obv, in the case of this EMU, it does make a difference. I'm just generally ranting.

I nearly went straight flush instead of royal but thought it would get less answers. Would have shifted some winners around slightly. Or added multiple I guess
