    Playing 9 handed in a home game and just saw pocket Qs, Ks, and As on the same hand. Can some one math nerd figure out the odds on that one? We cannot comprehend the probability of.something like this.

    Those are slim odds . . .

    In the WSOP main event (there's a YouTube clip), Royal Flush beat 4 Aces. I believe the guy from everyone loves Raymond was at the table. Don't know the odds on that one but its pretty slim too.

    But that's a cool story TS. I play lots of online poker and I'm pretty sure I've been at tables with 3 or 4 pairs all going heads up.

    *edit* I don't think I've ever seen As, Ks, and Qs though.

    I busted out of a tourney with Kings when three players with pocket 2s, 4s, and 6s all flopped a set.

    I was in a hand online (PartyPoker)where 2 people had pocket As and 2 had pocket Qs.
    All in pre....Was my last hand that tourney.

    Funny thing, i remember it like it was yesterday(It was about 8 years ago).
    UTG shorty (me) pushed all in with QQ.
    MP called with AA.
    Button (big stack) came over the top with QQ.
    SB all in with AA.

    I've also seen Andrew Robl bust out of a major European tour event with quad 9s (I believe), beaten by quad Qs. Pretty stinking bad luck.

    I've had a Royal Flush at least 4 times. I remember the first time for sure not one single person congratulated me for a nice hand. It's not like I was taunting people and playing like an ass. I thought that was unbelievable. Hit two more Royal Flushes in about the space of 3 weeks. The last one was maybe 6 months ago. Hard to believe as I thought they were pretty much impossible. But that was all online, nothing in live poker.

    Reminds me of a beat a buddy of mine got. He had KK and the flop comes 2 J J. He's with one other guy. The money all goes in and the other guy is holding AQ. So the turn is a J, AND the river is a J, so now he actually loses the hand because the other guy has 4 of a kind with a better kicker, lol.

    Wow, that's shitty dude...Reminds me of the time I got beat out betting all in on pocket A's ...The flop comes up * * A * * ...4 of which were spades and the 1 was a heart. The other guy had an A of spades and a 2 of hearts. Effin flush bro, effin flush...

    I bet so hard thinking I was gonna win too, without realizing the river had 4 spades.

    I played 1 million dollar table - I won the seat through a satellite tournament. It was Sunday morning in pokerstars. I believe the first place winnings was like 220K and then on down. Basically big money could be made.

    The first hand is dealt and I get A K of spades. I raise to like 500 chips (5000 stacks), one other guy calls, everyone else folds. Flop comes and it's J spades 3 Spades and K of diamonds. So, I have top pair and and a flush draw. I can't remember exactly how it went but we raised/reraised each other until we both went all-in. The guy's got K K in his hand. So he was trip Ks while I have a flush draw. Of course no spade comes up on the turn and river so I'm out in the first hand. I was SO pissed. A genuine pokerstars setup had taken place and I was the victim. It sucked so bad!

    Yea the odds are very small. Royal flush beating 4 aces is very rare let alone Ray Romano being at the table.

    I've had Aces against Aces once.

    I've also had a flopped straight flush against 3 other people who had an ace high flush, king high flush and another flush.
