What is the probability of someone getting a straight flush in one hand and then someone else from the same table in the very next hand - quads?

i guess it's something like 1/72192 * nplayers * 1/4164 =
nplayers/300607488 (not exactly but a fine approximation)

People aren't playing 100% of hands up to the river, so we can't just base on C(7,52) combinations.

Even if you fold 72o you miss some 222XX/777XX/A345Xs etc. boards.
We don't know players tendencies, so we don't know preciesly their odds of hitting a big hand.
Fish who play 32s all the time has more opportunities to hit a straight flush than a tight player.

I don't think that number has any significance

Much like the chances of getting dealt A 5 , K 3 , 7 4 , 5 5 and A 9 in a row are very low, it doesn't matter for anything

That number doesn't have any significance, I was just wondering...
