Hello, Iím newbie here! How to know if I have any chance to get a Royal Flush during the pre-flop / flop by looking at my cards? What my cards should be like during these rounds, so it would make sense to expect the Royal Flush and not fold them?
The best shot on royal flush would require you to have a suited cards (ten or better) in your hand. The probability of even this happening is 0.03 percent. You could make a royal flush even with only one high card in your hand but your chances would be even slimmer.
The probability of your suited hand to improve to royal flush depends on the board, but it is safe to say that your chances are still very low.
You are better off learning how to play any two cards that you are holding, and also learning when to fold them.
Knowing that isn't going to help you much if you ever do get dealt a Royal.
But understanding how we arrived at the odds will be a help when you are confronted with the question of whether you should call a bet when you are drawing 2 cards to an open ended straight. Study the procedure, then look up the tables available everywhere and memorize some of the percentages for "outs" to your hand.
