Poker players Connor Drinan and Cary Katz go all in pre-flop with aces at the World Series of Poker $1 million buy-in tournament. That deal... whoa. I've played Texas hold'em , and I had one good game but mostly I sucked or was average.

As I understand it, when you get dealt two aces, that's like the best thing ever and you start betting like trailer park grandma.
Here's an overly simple explanation- So they both bet everything, not knowing the other also has a pair of aces. Basically they are both tied. (BTW they both had to put up $1 million to play)
So the dealer starts turning over the cards. Two cards are hearts. If you get 5 cards that are the same suit (symbol) it's called a flush, and that's a big deal. When nothing but hearts are dealt (and statistically that's rare) the guy with the ace of hearts wins, because a flush beats a pair. Other guy loses ONE MILLION DOLLARS
