What is the probablity of flopping a Royal Flush? I've been playing online for more than 1 1/2 years ... and came very close to flopping one... this fold broke my heart.

In the 19th hand of a $20 SNG ... the following occured.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t30 (9 handed) converter (http://www.selachian.com/tools/bisonconverter/hhconverter.cgi)

MP3 (t175)
CO (t2845)
Button (t465)
SB (t785)
BB (t550)
UTG (t735)
UTG+1 (t755)
MP1 (t870)
Hero (t820)

Preflop: Hero is MP2 with T/images/graemlins/diamond.gif, J/images/graemlins/diamond.gif.
UTG folds, UTG+1 folds, MP1 folds, Hero calls t30, MP3 folds, <font color="#CC3333">CO raises to t125</font>, Button folds, SB calls t110, BB folds, Hero folds.

Flop: (t310) A/images/graemlins/diamond.gif, Q/images/graemlins/diamond.gif, K/images/graemlins/diamond.gif <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, <font color="#CC3333">CO bets t125</font>, SB folds.

Final Pot: t435

After you have been dealt 2 suited broadways, there is exactly on flop that gives you a royal flush. There are (50 choose 3) possible flops.

Your chances are 1 in 19,600

They really give you a free hat? Do you have to fold or just get a royal? Thanks

I think if you fold a royal they take back any and all hats you own. Send them the hand history, it's worth a shot. I won mine, but don't know if it's required.

So in 19,599 hands when you get dealt that again.. Don't fold. /images/graemlins/wink.gif

Thor, did you really email them the hand history and get sent a hat? I thought they didnt' do that.

I was on Multi Poker when I had my first Royal.

I emailed them about it, no reply....
No swag, I guess.

I emailed Party for my free hat but there was no reply, anyone know if it will just appear in the mail one day or if they didnt get the email in the first place and I have to reemail them?
