# What are the probabilities of getting a “Straight flush” in a poker game?

I'm not a pretty much fun of Poker, but I'd like to study that game.

What kind of poker? Texas Hold-em? Seven-card stud? Five-card draw? Etc? Or maybe that is what you mean by "how are cards dealt". Also, do you want to factor in behavior? For instance, in Hold-em, if player A's down cards are 2,3 hearts, they would likely fold right off. Yet there's a chance they could have followed it out to a straight flush. These kinds of considerations make the question intractable. That's why most poker calculations stick to a random hand of five cards. – alex.jordan Mar 21 '12 at 18:50

If you are dealt five cards, there are $4\times10 =40$ possible straight flushes ($4\times 9 =36$ if you exclude royal flushes) out of the ${52 \choose 5}= 2598960$ possible hands. So the probability is $\dfrac{40}{2598960} = \dfrac{1}{64974} \approx 0.00001539\ldots$.
