**Reiny**, Friday, April 10, 2009 at 11:59pmDon't assume everybody knows what a royal flush is, I had to look it up

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_rankings#Straight_flush

There are 4 possible royal flushes.

the number of ways to choose any 5 cards

= C(52,5)

so the prob of a royal flush = 4/C(52,5)

= 4/2598960

= 1/649740
