Playing a tournament online just now, I had this mildly interesting situation come up:
I had Ac-Kh. He had 9d-9s. The flop was Qd-Qh-10h, and the turn was 3h.
Today's quiz: How many outs did I have on the river to win? Submit your answers in the comments. First one to get it right (must include list of the cards that win for me, or other comparable explanation of your answer) wins...my eternal, undying admiration.
