The main idea behind a charity poker tournament is to collect money for the less fortunate. It's not that common that players actually leave a chairty tournament with more than their buy-in back.

However, on Monday at the Howard Frank Memorial Deep Stack Charity Classic at the Daytona Breach Kennel Club and Poker Room, a women managed to win $100,000 in a single hand!

The winner, poker amateur Sandy Brown, probably couldn't believe her eyes when she flopped a royal flush of diamonds (probability 1 in 2.6 million) which, as part of a promotion, was the requirement to win $100,000 in cash! But that's not all - she also won a brand new Kia k900 Sedan worth $60,000! Several pros attended the event, including Kara Scott, Norman Chad and Phil Hellmuth, who tweeted this picture of himself with the lucky winner.

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 Big Smile

What a great and heartwarming story and its always nice to see somebody win big. I have never had a flopped royal flush before so i can't imagine how excited she was when this happened
 klash2323/04/2015 14:19:45 GMT
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.

This was some badly mixed deck to be honest. Oh, I am just kidding, she probably was more happy about the cash than about the car though. Who would want to drive home with a KIA?
