I went to my local casino this morning to play some UTH and BJ, but they didn't have the \$25 BJ table open, so I went and played UTH.

I was playing \$10 Ante/Blind/Trips with the \$1 progressive and about even when I got the killer J4o. I checked, and the flop went JJJ. \$20+10+100+300 + \$299 on the light.

Next hand, I went up to \$25 a spot and had pocket 9s. Went 4X and had 994 hit the flop. \$100+25+250+750 + \$299 on the light.

I played one more hand at \$25 a spot (a fold) and left with my winnings.

I pretty much agree! The easiest way to do it (for the OP) is just to look at five-card poker probabilities:

https://wizardofodds.com/games/poker/

Okay, so the probability for doing it on any given hand is:

0.00024010

So, you want:

(0.00024010 * 0.00024010) = 5.764801e-8 which converts to 0.00000005764801, so 1/0.00000005764801 = 1 in 17,346,652.5557

I'm guessing there's a rounding difference somewhere in what we're using. I'm thinking yours is more precise.

I knew someone would do the math. Thanks!

That's pretty insane to flop 4oak twice in a row. I play a lot of video poker (same odds to flop a 4oak on UTH as in VP) and I don't think I've ever been dealt a four of a kind two hands in a row......only a few times (that I remember) have I hit a four of a kind two hands in a row, but that includes the draw and is far more likely.

Congrats.
