      Okay.. I've been learning how to play premium hands such as flushes, full boats.....etc.. But how the hell are you suppose to play royal flushes and get as many chips in the pot as you can?!

      This is my first thread guys ;)

      I'm no pro but I think it really depends on how you were playing at the table and how your oponents are playing.

      Play them the same as you would most made hands, agressively, especially on the lower limits

      hmmm well you play aggressive so people dont suck out, so i think you can slow play if people are betting in to you. Maybe throw out a over bet that shows weakness after the river, or under bet.

      Read your oponent you'll know how to play if youv been at the table long enough.

      What you dont want to do is change your play style, and give your hand away. if you only get say 5$ its better than scaring everyone away and only getting 2$. You want as many people as possible to see the turns.

      It really depend on the situation. Flop, players style of play, your position at the table, time at the table etc...

      like i said before im no pro but this is what i would do.

      I hit a royal flush the first hand of a tourney once and was UTG I bet 60 into a 100 pot everyone folded. :(

      You can slowplay. You can also play aggressively. It's situational and it depends on your image at the table. You should play aggressively and it's easier to get your hand to pay off if you're believed to be wild/ a bluffer at the table. If you have a solid image, slowplay or you may scare your opponents.

      It's that rare, so we would even want to earn the maximum. It would be extremely tilt if I managed to lose with it.:D

      thunderbird,

      it would be actually extremely nit :D
      well, of course you want to extract as much as u can...that's what you should be doing all the time but as I said it's such a rarity getting royal flush that it just doesn't deserve analyising...

      We don't analyze it as it's always the winning hand. :D

      The thing here is how to get it pay off which the topic author wanted us to "analyze". :D

      Well I guess a great example would be if you get it right on the flop (what are the odd of that anyway?) I mean if you have it on the flop that's great, you don't have to worry about anyone hitting anything because obviously, you won that hand...

      Yes, it would be great to have it on flop. But in that case, it's also too obvious to see. And if your opponents are not maniacs/ calling stations, etc.,..they're likely to get a easy fold. Though the situation may be diffirent if there are other flushes/ straights, it will pay off. :D

      I had the exact same scenario on pokerstars, but my straight flush was 9 high and the other guy had ace high flush...
