Default My first flopped Royal Flush and guess what happened...

Last night I played 6-max $25NL. From UTG I receive JQs and raise it up to $1. I get 4(!) callers and flop comes out 10 K A of the same suit!! I flopped my first Royal Flush!! I could hardly contain my excitment.

Blinds check, I check (I can slowplay this one), CO+1 bets $2, Button calls, SB & BB calls, I call. Next card I can't remember but blinds check, I check, CO+1 checks, SB goes AI (about $10), BB calls, I call, CO+1 folds, Button goes AI (about $17), I............................................loose connection. I was amazingly calm when I got my connection back but my hand was folded and I don't know the outcome.

One reason why I stayed calm was pure resignation. This happened on Full Tilt where I managed to get my deposit of $200 down to $80 in 3 months. Also I lost 3 buy-ins with set over set, rivered flush against my two pair and AA getting cracked by Q6o within an hour of this happening. Luckily my bankroll on Stars is increasing steadily.

I knew that if I let get this to me that I would be done with Poker for a while and I can't let this happen.

The "poker is rigged" contingency is going to have a field day with this post.

Please tell me you are joking. I admire you for staying calm, seriously.

Yeah complain to support. Even if the table did not offer All-in Disconnection protection they should still give you some money back. Will it work? Probably not, but showing them a copy of the hand history may change their mind.

I know a guy who knows a guy who got a royal flush recently and reached for the print screen button to take a screen shot. Unfortunately he hit the power off button instead. (I'm guessing it was a laptop). This was in a tournament. When he got his computer up and running again, he had already been eliminated.

Sorry for your luck----that sucks ass! As has been said, the worst part to me is you had 2 guys calling off their stacks. If you had hit the flop and been immediately disconnected, at least you wouldn't know if you would have seen any action or not.

Congrats on maintaining an even keel! I doubt I would.
