What are the odds?
I was playing a home cash game last weekend. I had a flush draw on the turn with KsTs. I had raised pre flop, and on both streets and narrowed the field to heads up. My opponent had smooth called me to this point and based on my reads I had her on small spades.
The river came: 8s. I knew we both had a flush, but I figured my K high flush had her beat. I shoved and she called and then turned over 4s5s, giving her a straight flush. Ouch.
I reckon I made the right moves and would do the same in similar circumstances, but I got wondering about odds. I know the odds of getting a straight flush in Holdem (about 1:70000), but does anyone know the odds of getting a straight flush by the river if you are dealt suited connectors?
