I got A Royal Flush of harts playing Texas holdem online. Thats a 649740 to 1 chance. This hand had the 9 of harts too! Whats the chance of that? This amazing hand was also in numerical order from left to right. K, A of harts in hand, 9, 10, jack of harts on the flop (straight flush) K of diamonds on the turn followed buy the queen of harts on the river. I took a screen shot of it. Is someone able to work out the odds of that happening?

Thanks

More importantly, we finally found someone who spells worse than AxelWolf.

When you already have AK suited, the chance of what you describe is 2 / (50 P 4) = 1 in 2,763,600

If the flop didn't have to be 3 of the cards (but you still want numerical order of your cards), then it's 5/2 as likely. So 2/5 of 2673600 is 1,105,440.
