All cards wild have the best chance.

All card wild is by far the best chance to get royal flush but once my opponent announced he had fullhouse aces over kings I showed him my quad deuces for the victory.

All card stud is a much better game with a pretty good chance of getting a royal flush.

The point they're making is valid, too. The more cards in a hand, the better the chance of seeing a Royal. Also, the more cards in your hand, the better the chance of seeing a royal.

HE is a pretty good one to see one eventually since if there are four parts to a royal on the board there are 1+2*(number of players remaining) chances for that last one to show. I couldn't compare the odds with 7-stud because while in HE you need three of five or more likely four of five in a single instance each hand, there are (number of players) chances for three of five with each starting hand in Stud.

(now that I think about it, intuitively with chasers you should see more straight flushes in 7Stud than in HE, but intuition can be easily wrong).

I also couldn't compare a game like Omaha, since while each player has more chances to get dealt 2/5 for the royal (harder in Texas HE), they also have a chance to get dealt 3/5 or 4/5, ruining their chances of making it.

You say intuitively alot. Like on your other thread ;o
