Where in the pantheon of poker hands would all evens (2,4,6,8,10) fall? Suited all evens has to be as rare as a royal flush.

What game? Texas Hold'em? Omaha? Just dealing 5 cards to yourself? If just dealing 5 cards to yourself from a standard 52 card deck equal probability of a Royal Flush or your all even flush. If a real game where players fold bad hands the likelihood of the Royal is higher than the 2,4,6,8,10 flush, as the lower value cards would fold at a much higher frequency.

Welcome to the forum.

It is one rung lower in the pantheon from 3, 4, 6, 8, 10. You’ll not this hand suited is also as rare as a royal flush (as is any particular flush of specific rank).
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

The Wiz and I talked about this type of hand at the Spring Fling. I wanted to call it a "picket fence" straight, but the Wiz indicated it already had a name... a "kangaroo straight".

Sadly, it doesn't have much of a rank.

Well there you go.. already been discussed here and my original name wasn't so original after all!

Our discussion was about Texas Hold'em. The question was a mathmatical one, ie if there were such a named hand as Odds or Evens, would those hands beat a flush. As a practical matter, we reasoned that people will play any ace more frequently so Odds would be hit more often than Evens.

I meant the theoretical hand Odds or Evens as opposed to s straght or flush. Not the actual curent state.

There are various poker terms including Irish Straight and Dutch Straight. The following has their definition (I tried to post more details but the forum page crashed) https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=h6EvNIk3v_sC&pg=PT549#v=onepage&q&f=false
