# The Royal Flush

I just got my first royal flush the other day (wish i knew how to post it) and it's the first time ive seen one besides when watching the movie Maverick.

So i'm just wondering how many times other players have gotten the elusive royal flush and if they won a big pot with it or not.

Hei

i have exactly 0 in 400,000 hands.

i did however fold a potential one preflop

dealt AT, i fold to early position raise. flop came JKX, turn Q.

not too sure about the maths of it but i think the probability of getting a royal flush is 1 in 220000 or there about. I read that in several places.

I had not one, but twice royal flush. And played once vs royal flush. First royal flush was epic AhJh, v KK. FlOP ThKhQx, Turn K, River Qh ... SO sad that it was on Pokerstars otherwise I would've got a "nice" BR boost. But haven't see an royal flush in 4-5 months.

Well according to wikipedia, its 649,740 : 1 if you consider 5 card poker.

so i was wrong before.

theres 2,598,960 possible hands and only 4 of them are royal flushes.

But for games with 7 cards where you take the best of 5. It is: 30,939 : 1

I got my first one a few weeks ago.

Known players:
Position:
Stack
UTG1:
\$12.20
MP1:
\$52.50
Hero:
\$41.45

0.5/1 Fixed-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

Preflop: Hero is BU with Q , K
UTG1 calls, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls, 3 folds, Hero raises, 2 folds, UTG1 calls, MP1 calls.

Flop: (7.50 SB) J , 5 , 9 (3 players)
UTG1 checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets, UTG1 calls, MP1 folds.

Turn: (4.75 BB) A (2 players)
UTG1 checks, Hero bets, UTG1 raises, Hero calls.

River: (8.75 BB) T (2 players)
UTG1 checks, Hero bets, UTG1 calls.

Final Pot: 10.75 BB

Hero shows a royal flush (Qc Kc)
UTG1 shows a pair of aces (Ah Qh)

Hero wins with a royal flush (Qc Kc)

Would have prefered a non-club ten on the river. Villian might have bet again.

man i wish i could have saved it for the higher stakes although i did win a huge pot of 2\$ lol. Now i'm going to have to wait another 600 000 hands for the next one. I'ts pretty crazy cause ive only played 3 000 hands.

Closest I got was a K high straight flush.

Once saw someone else flop a royal flush at my table tho.

@ pokerhelton:

What screen capture software do you use?
And does it offer a print area option rather than full screen?

Or are you just using windows print screen thingy?

This is asumming you reach the river though, seen as for a tag this will only happen 7% of the time would mean you have a 1 iin 441986 hands, however this doesnt taking nito account the times you hit one on the flop or turn which would make it difficult to accuratly calculate how often you get one and ultimately it depends on your playing style.

And actualy from this point of view, fish do get better hands because they will get more royal flushes (statistically)!!! RIGGED
