Grubby's Hand of the Week #3

No winner for last week, so we add $5 to the prize pool.

I'm doubling the prize to $50 because this week I'm asking you for two hand reads. (If you're the first to correctly guess just MP1's hand, you'll get the $25 prize.)

Suits don't matter. The only hint I'll give you is that this is a clear example of how wild Party is, and if you aren't playing there full time, you're losing money. It's not even worth chasing bonuses on other sites (trust me, I know).

Incidentally, I have zero people signed up through me on Party. It'd be fun to have at least one! How's about a bribe: if you sign up through me at this link and play a few hands for real money, I'll give you $20. As a further incentive, Party will also give you a 20 percent bonus on your first deposit, up to $100. So if you deposit $100, you'll get $20. Deposit $500 and get $100. Just sign up and let me know your username and where to send you the cash.
