On a losing end of STR FLUSH v ROYAL FLUSH :(.

1st - What are the odds of this?
2nd - More importantly how do the masses deal with these RNGs that continue to produce...let's just call it "Juicy" flops, turns & rivers?
3rd - Please don't reply with an answer than indicates the abnormalities are result of seeing much more hands when you play online poker... :)

If the board has 10-Ksuited, and you have a 9, and someone else puts you all in, I'd say 80-20 you are going to lose. Before you see the flop I'd say you have a one in 50 billion chance of drawing a straight flush to lose to a royal. Someone else can do the real math if they want to...

Yep. Online is sooooooooooo much faster so you'll see these more frequently. Similar to Powerball or Mega-Millions. One person most likely will never hit the jackpot, but when tens of millions play simultaneously, it's more likely to get hit.
