    They CAN be fun, until you get that one guy that gets all serious and wants to up the pot or do side bets.

    I've had 3 royals in NLHE, but I've played about a million hands lifetime.

    that would be hilarious if they're playing a joke on me. Then again, I do have one card to go. There's probably plenty of people who were one card away from a royal flush and then got the wrong card and went, "Ah, crap!"

    Last I looked the odds of a RF are 650,000 to 1. Hope you pull that 10 card.

    Last card was the 9 of spades. CRAP! Off by one error.

    Right, but since he's already got 4 of the cards, the chances of that fifth card is dependent on how many cards are left in the deck. If each player gets the full deck, then he exists outside of a normal poker game.. In which case his odds of getting the royal flush now was (edited from is) 1 in 48. otherwise it depends on the number of people playing from that deck...or how many decks there were too.


    That's still a flush. Not bad at all.

    Sounds like someone was trying to get your hopes up.....or maybe it's your boss's way of demonstrating how it feels when you almost do a good job.

    I always had a rule, no pokers at work. I pissed too many employees off.

    Funny, I just had a similar thought, after reading the title about 20 times.
