Yes, I had one, and I often replay the hand, because while I ended up getting good value from the hand, I ended up raising my opponent out of the hand. I had AQ suited, say clubs, and the flop gave me a gut to a straight flush. My opponent had a gut to a straight. The turn card made my royal flush and gave my opponent a straight. He bet seventy-five dollars, and, instead of just calling and hoping that the river card was a brick, I made a small raise, maybe to 175, which put my opponent in a polarizing opponent. He couldn't just call. He either had to raise or fold. He folded. I wish that I had just called.
first time i hit a royal flush was when i was a kid playing online on my dads poker account while he was in the kitchen, I yelled at him saying i hit a royal flush and i heard a yell telling me to get off the PC and he ran to the PC to play the hand LOL! it was just play money but that was the first time i ever got a royal flush! LOL
... I know because I hunted both of them down so I could brag about all the gazillions of Royal Flushes I've had (these are just ones that I've screen shot and kept track of... ahem.. there was likely more ) lol
PS - I still suck at poker. I'm working at getting better though... so ya never know. I think there's hope for me yet!
PSS - And yah... I can tell you exactly how many straight flushes too (yup! I take screenshots of them too, lol... and there's LOTS!)
I have had a royal flush at least 3 times in three years. And honestly, when I first got the royal flush, I did not even realize I had such strong cards. I only realized this when all my opponents folded.
Several over my 16 years of playing online, altho it's been a while since my last one. Of course way back when, I was playing several tournaments at a time. Also I was playing 10 to 12 hours a day or more.
JUST KILLIN TIME,,,WAITING FOR TIME TO KILL ME...
Yep, at Pokerstars in a $4/180-plyr sng. I'll never forget it: it was Thanksgiving weekend 2008, looked down at an A-10c, flopped KQc, 2 shorter stax shove, I call the chip leaders' all in, as well as 2 more plyrs, rivered the Jc and watched a pot of 55K+ come my way (started the hand w/approx 8600). The chat box lit up like crazy. Went out in 3rd about 4 hrs later.
lol i only had it once 5 years at a charity casino called Cne happens in Toronto. I remember that well because i also had a bad beat only once as well it happen a span of 1 week since i got royal flush. I was telling my self if i had that bad beat in a real casino i would have been 50,000 richer
Oh...there was also the time that I got a royal flush on the board. This one was online, I forget where exactly. The cheeky villain freaking shoved on that river, saying it was worth a try or something. Um, if I'm that unobservant I need to have a hospital check me for brain damage. :P
It doesn't matter what you can do--what matters is what you will do.
Theoretically, every player has a chance to collect a royal flush in poker, but in practice they are minimal. In Texas Hold'em, the probability of a Royal Flush on the flop is 0.0008%, the turn is 2% and the river is 4%. In Omaha, the indicators will be slightly higher: the Royal Flush chance on the flop is 0.001%, on the turn - 2% and the river - 4.5%.
I can't really remember when I had a royal flush because I didn't! haha ha
Worse, I never even had a straight flush.
The interesting thing is that I have the impression that for me in relation to my game and not even the game of the villain will matter to me because I think hand to hand, that is, I see if in the play I have nuts and if the villain does not, if I think I have and the villain loses, whether by royal flush or not.
