      I got my first staight flush over a year ago playing 3/6 limit at the Century Casino where I live here in Edmonton. Pretty cool hand. I remember after the flop came and I had called thinking, I need the three of hearts to make a straight flush and there it was on the turn! It was magical.

      There are 2598960 different 5-card poker hand.
      Of those 40 are straight flushes including the royals.

      On average therefore, you could reasonably expect one every 65,000 hands or so.
      So if you put in the volume -- say 100K hands a month, you would see over 1 a month. :coolface:

      What are the players like in the Casinos in Edmonton?
      I get the impression that the ones in and around Vancouver are a bit above me.

      That, and the $2/$4 blinds put it out of my bankroll management structure.

      Best of luck,
