Knew what the card was when playing poker

Maybe it was luck, maybe it wasn't. A couple weeks ago I was playing Texas Hold'em with some friends, had a few drinks. I would consider myself barely drunk at that point.

Anyways for those of you who are familiar with the game, i guessed the "river" card 3 times throughout the night (the only 3 times i tried).

The card would be sitting alone on the table face down. I would just stare at it, and block out everything else around me, and clear my mind. Everytime I tried to see the card, i got it right. The only thing i didn't get right was the exact suit. I would always get the number/face correct, as well as the color (black, red) But didn't nail it down to the suit. It was at 3 random times during the night when i was still in the hand agianst someone. What happened here, was it just three lucky guesses??

You want a piece of this now or what?

You might have a gift. You might want to keep it a secret.

I love Texas hold 'em!

Parlay this talent with good solid play and son you will never have to work another day in your life.

Except professional poker is much harder than working.

My take on your experience is that being "almost drunk" released that psychic ability some posess. If you can repeat this feat; need a modest backer?

Okay here's what you do:

1. Get a job.
2. Get a career.
3. Play poker for fun.

Trust me on this one.

Three times! I guess that this would make you , er, psychic! Yeah! That's it! You're a psychic!

Whew. Frankly, I was started to get worried. Have you seen the amazing Kreskin lately? He's starting to look really old. And his glasses are thicker than the lens on some of the Mount Palomar Astronomical Observatory optical telescopes. But, I started thinking about who would -- who could -- take the Amazing Kreskins place. My mind is finally free from concern. Thank God you have revealed yourself.

...or maybe you were just lucky.

I have a photgraphic memory and I use it to my advantage when playing poker or better yet Blackjack.
When I get really ahead, i start having fun with the dealers and the pitbosses by telling them the next card that I will get.
Note, I only can play at two casinos because of this "ability"
