I have seen a lot of times and 1 time happened to me, but it was in a early stage of a tournament and did not improve my stack a lot, but was not bad. Most of the times royal flush is happening when there is going to be a brutal bad beat for the specific person and the software has decided that this is the time that person to be crushed. I have been noticed this a lot of times.
In live poker I have seen many, many royal flushes and straight flushes. But with that said, it made me think that online poker you have a lot more flushes, quads and full houses than live poker. While playing online poker I have only seen one royal and that was on BOL and the royal was on the board -- the two players in the hand split the pot . . .
I've had a couple in the past few months, seen perhaps a half dozen more in that time. All of these were online, on PokerStars.
I got one of them in a CC tournament, got paid at showdown, and received not one single comment or even so much as a "nh".
Live, I have not had one but have seen many. Most recently was in 2019, before the pandemic, when life was carefree (except it wasn't).
Once you start playing a lot of online poker, they just come up more frequently, and everyone likes to show it, even if everyone has folded...so that is one hand you just get to see. It's like quad aces. Few people can resist showing that beauty off.
The hand has a probability of 0.000154% or 649,739:1.
I guess I'm lucky as I've only played about 120K hands over the past quarter or so. Far fewer than would be typical to see just one.
Dude...it doesn't add much to the conversation to reply with made up numbers.
1:650,000 would be a reasonable estimate if you weren't trying to be exact, but rounding up to 1M is a bridge too far.
Bruh, let's take it easy, should we? Why does my number is based on assumptions and yours not? I'm not an analyst or a professional into statistics nor you I bealieve, so just because you used a small number doesn't mean I'm wrong and you right)
What's for sure is that a royal flush its a rare hand. I know guys who plays for 20years and they never made one so, the chances are for sure really small. No one can tell the exact numbers and I'm cool with it
3, two online that i was at the table for. 1 for another person that won very basic pot, 1 raise fold. the other one I flopped it but the action checked all the way to river where i thin value bet and nobody called.
1 was live at a home game for a large pot.
I have not seen one and I am not eager to see. Do not create an idol for yourself, we are all people, no matter how they call themselves, they are all ordinary mortals.
But if you are figuratively talking about a flush piano, then a couple of times I had them and I don't remember whether they paid me for them or not. The main thing is not a beautiful picture, but stable wins.
I got my first royal in a Tourny and i ran deep in it too. Only seem one royal and i was the one who was holding it. Pretty cool ive been playing poker nearly 13 years and I have had quads in a live game and also a bad beat jackpot. Nothing cool with skill though hahaha
