This is a discussion on Why flush occurs in practice more than full house? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; the probability of a flush 3%, the probability of a full house is 2.9: question: why flush into practice more often????

There are still a lot more combinations that can occur
The fact that drawing to one after you have 2,3, or 4 parts of it has a WAY higher success rate is why you see it more, flush draws are very popular.. In fact, after you hit 4 to a flush it will hit more often than if you had 4 to a straight. Funny thing that math.

re: Poker & Why flush occurs in practice more than full house?
There are 2,598,960 Ways to make a 5 card poker hand.
3,744 ways to make full house (3,744/2,598,960=0.00144 or 0.144%) 5,108 ways to make a flush (5,198/2,598,960=0.00197 or 0.197%) {not counting the 40 straight flushes which have a different ranking} In practice there are more ways to make a flush than a full house which is why it occurs more often, and that is why the hands are ranked as they are, so that the less likely full house will win against the more common flush.

Flush chaser!!!
I'm 100 times more likely to draw for a flush then a boat....think about how many boats you actually hit in a night playing poker....then compare it to how many flushes you hit or have 4 flushes to draw to...but everyone is right...its just simple math...the flush is more common

It's kind of an academic question. What you really want to know are the http://gaminghill.com/img/custom//po...ral_odds_1.png) to be quite useful:

Thanks for the table, really looks quite useful!

Simply, higher chance. Mathematics is amazing in poker, there is a higher probability of making flush because there are more outs, as someone above me already mentioned
PS: I love flushes :P Actually flush is my favorite way to win a hand or to fold, beacuse its so easily predictable, yet so many people chase the luck and think that I dont have that flush while i raise :P
