sounds like a fun idea.Quote:jrblackieAlso, the deal is 9 cards for a royal and 4OAK using all 9 cards. Can't combine any of the 4OAK with the royal. I think it's close to the 459M - 1. I still have to look at NGC for regulations, but I hope you're right. Thank you for the info.

the Royal and 4oak is about 1 in 115 million as calculated before.

good luck to you

Got another question.

What is the equation for obtaining a 6 card flush in the first six cards dealt?

I guess the first card doesn't matter. So 1 in 52. After that the suit matters. So the next should be 1 in 12, 1 in 11 and so forth. Is that right? And how is the equation written?

Thanks.

Not 1 in 52 to start, you start with 52 in 52, or just 1. Here’s how I would write it, as there are multiple ways:

(52/52) * (12/51) * (11/50) * (10/49) * (9/48) * (8/47) = 0.00033715613 which is about 1 in 2965.985
