Would love to compare notes regarding the math on this amazing pair of hands during a 6-player home tourney. A winning hand producing a rare straight flush happened not once but twice. And there is more .... MUCH more! The SAME 2 players were involved in these hands from start to finish, each player having the exact SAME hole cards in both hands and, even more unbelievable, the EXACT SAME straight flush was the end result. The process in each followed the same route - 3 cards to the SF after the flop, the Queen of Hearts making 4 to the SF after the turn and the fill of the straight flush on the river. If that weren't enough, the SAME player of the 2 filled the straight flush!

Feel free to throw out any of the following -- (1) the probabilities of this happening, (2) the probability of the same player simply hitting 2 straight flushes during the same tournament (3) the probability that 2 players would have identical hole cards or (4) any other calculation you wish to state relating to this once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. I can provide any additional information and, being a retired math teacher, understand the math involved is daunting at best.

Did the same person shuffle/deal both times?

I mean, yeah...the odds are 1, because these were not random events...

Nope --- 2 different dealers happening perhaps 40 hands apart. Never seen anything like it!

Really ... the probability that this event happened IS 1, thus the reason for the post. Now what is the theoretical probability that the same player gets 2 straight flushes in the same tournament approximately 40 hands apart. And again, that is ignoring the fact that the straight flushes in question where the EXACT SAME --- 8 thru Q in hearts!
