 High King of Ireland   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The office of High King of Ireland (Irish: Ard Rí Érenn) was in origin a pseudohistorical construct of the eighth century that placed a King of all Ireland atop the fragmented pyramid of kingship that actually existed at that time.
This notion of a High kingship acted as a spur to greater centralisation and was converted into political reality by the middle of the ninth century, so the lengthy list of High kings often seen in poorly researched works is unhistorical before that time.

On the one hand, it can be highly profitable because you will never split the high end of a pot when you hold a flush.
If you are re-raised, then you have significantly boiled down the situation: you opponent probably has the ace-high flush or has a ten high flush and a set.
But keep in mind that tight and sensible players don't usually over-pump the pot with a nut low and therefore, if one is relentlessly aggressive on the flop, I usually suspect that they have the ace-high flush and I'll slowdown considerably.
