Ion, or anyone,

I worked out the odds of a royal flush/straight flush (e.g. 5,6,7,8,9 of clubs) to be around 600,000 to 1. But it's a while ago now and I can't even remember how I worked it out! Can someone tell me if this correct? Also could you tell me how I work out the poker odds of getting a pair ( or other hands ) depending on whether there are 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 players other than the casino dealer. I have some history lists of results for stud poker and would like to work on a possible strategy for playing for 'guaranteed' profit. But my math needs a quick kick up the backside to get it going! Any results I trends I find of interest I will of course share here.

Many thanks,

Nik Barker
