holy crap :shocked:

edit: I don't know odds percentages but I'm thinking that your chance of winning in that situation is like 95-98% of the time.

BS...that is not possible. there can not be a straight flush and 4 of a kind in the same game of texas hold'em

You: Ad, Ah
Him: 3s,7s

Flop: Ac, As, 5s

Turn: 6s

River: 4s


Having four aces on the flop get beat by a runner runner straight flush is about the worst beat i can think of.

Player 1 : Ad As
Player 2 : 3h 4h

Board : Ac 2h 5h Ah X

Possible, and has happened before - I was player 2. Unraised pot in my BB, flop the nut straight, turn the absolute nuts, and bust a guy with quads. A friendly reminder about why you always raise preflop with AA. :thumbsup:

basically, there is ONE card out of the remaining 44 cards. thats about 2.5%

I had a friend that flopped 4 of a kind Kings (other card was a 2), to be beaten by 4 of a kind Aces on the river. Only reason I beleived it was I was there.

In last year's WSoP, someone flopped 4 of a kind and got his opponent to go all in with a bigger hole card pair, but lost the hand when the other guy drew 4 of a kind too. Same odds as your outdraw.

To get to one card on the river to win, he first had to catch one of two cards on the turn to even stay alive. (2/45)*(1/44)=.001% chance of winning on the flop. It went up to the 2.5% you mentioned after he caught a J on the turn.

You actually needed both Jacks, (2/45)*(1/44).

edit: too late

Yes there can. You need 5 cards for a straight flush, and 4 cards for a 4 of a kind. There are many different ways to get that.
