the other day i was down at bullets poker club in the mobius strip playing texas hold em. it was a pretty tight crowd and i couldnt get much action but this was one of the more interesting hands of the night.

i limped in on the button with suited connectors (8's, 9's). The flip came down Ac, 7's, 6's. A rock in ealy position raised it up up about triple the big blind. Everyone folded round to me but i stayed along for the ride. He had a pretty sizable stack and didnt hesitate to go all in when a red ace hit on the turn. this put me in a tricky spot, my fear was obviously that he'd been slow oplaying rockets.

if that were the case, the onlyway to win the hand would be to land a straight flush on the river.

two questions for you:

1. what are my odds of hitting that killer straight flush?
2. out of interest, what are my odds of making any straight or flush at the river?

no prizes for guessing what i did with my hand.
