I recently played in a Hold ‘em home game with an interesting structure. It starts as a tournament with blinds increasing after each round. As players are knocked out, a regular game begins. The tournament was down to the last three players when a remarkable hand was dealt. After a raise from the big blind, there was only one call. The flop came: 3, 4 of hearts and the 2 of diamonds. The big blind went all in and was snap called. Player 1 tabled the A-2 of hearts and Player 2, the 6, 7 of hearts. Amazingly, the turn was the 5 of hearts. Two straight flushes! The probability is .000027 or roughly 1 in 36,000. Yep, quite a hand.
