The poker, and the world too is a strange place, go play a charity tournament and in the end win more money that she put and a brand new car, with the hand that lots of people/players take years, other months and other weeks for get in a table.
Maybe this story in a few days will get other news, from this women, because for what i see, is a charity tournament and win that kind of money, maybe she will go further and help others.
One way or other in the end all be happy , congratulations for the women

It must be a double edged sword to have flopped a royal flush in this kind of tournament as I am sure there are going to plenty of internet trolls saying she should be giving her winnings to the charity.If it was me I would have some guilt about the winnings but there is no way I would give it away,a nice donation though.
