I've been playing poker since I was a kid. I've been playing in casinos since college. Some times it feels like I've seen all the situations unfold and the challenge of reading people is what keep the game interesting. Today was an exception.

I got a straight flush. With the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten of clubs, I held the immortal nuts. I even got two callers on the river.

If you never ever fold and always go to a showdown, that still only happens once every 31 thousand hands in holdem. So with about 25 hands per hour, this should happen once every 1240 hours of play. When you take folding into account, then number goes way up and the math gets too complicated for a late night blog.

But I got a Royal Flush. At this rate I should have another one in 2035.
