Superfull

I saw something the other day while playing at the Wynn that I don't recall ever having seen before. The final board was K-J-K-J-K. One guy bet, got two callers. He then turned over not only the case king, but another jack to go with it. He had four kings and three jacks.

As far as I know, that kind of hand doesn't have a name in poker--but it damn well should have!

He should have won the bad beat jackpot as both cards played!

A regular full house is also a "boat", so call this a "battleship"

I've had two full houses before but never this!

That sounds like the overfull overfull.

I've done that with kings over 3s. It was actually the first time I ever got quads.

I do think that when you have two full-houses (i.e. same example except without the fourth king on the board), it should be called the duplex.

I once also had my boat turn into quads and tabled it yelling out Quads Full. Quads Full beats a five card straight flush but loses to a six card straight flush. At least I think it should.
