      In NLHE the royal flush can still be called... but I noticed that in PLO if you have one you can hardly make any money. You already have all the broadway flush cards, so no decent flush should call your big bets. The only possibilities are when someone has a full house or (what a bad beat!!) quads/straight-flush.

      Nicely done dude! :s_cool:

      I think i've had three. One of which i was AFK for in a tournament, folded AA preflop - hit a royal flush on the turn.

      That story is from a play money tourney though, so no concerns. The other two, one was play money and the other was in rush poker.
