Remember when Baghdad hold 'em was fun?

I think FoxNews started the game. The idea was to come up with the best poker hand using the captured members of the 55 most wanted list. This game became pointless as soon as everyone got a Saddam-high royal straight flush. So the news that the 6 of diamonds was captured yesterday is interesting because he had a lead role with insurgency, but otherwise (yawn!).

So I propose that the rules of the game be modified so that you have to make the best poker hand with uncaptured baathists. I've got a full-house Jacks over Kings. Anybody got that beat? Or has Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri been captured?
