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.
