Sometimes you get lucky in the big blind. I had a straight draw and a flush draw after the flop, then I got the flush (got the straight too, but that was irrelevant), and I still had the straight flush draw for the river, which I got. The only thing that was a minor worry was that if somebody had the queen of spades, my straight flush would have lost to the higher straight flush (wouldn’t that suck). But I won the hand and the small pot.

This is the third straight flush I’ve had in my life, which is above average. You always win on a straight flush because nobody ever sees it coming.
