Once in a lifetime flop....
Consider the 3 flop cards and your 2 hole cards all together, there are only 4 combinations of 5 cards that make a royal flush (one for each suit). There are 52c5 = 2,598,960 combinations of 5 cards, so the probability of flopping a royal flush is 4 / 2,598,960 = 1 / 649,740.
It was pretty cool....something I can wipe off the bucket list I guess. "I have flopped a royal flush." As they say....SO SICK!
