Straight Flush

In the context of gambling, a straight flush is the second strongest hand in poker. It consists of 5 cards of the same suit in a sequential rank (e.g. ♢5, ♢6, ♢7, ♢8, ♢9).

The straight flush is the second strongest, and rarest, hand in high poker (e.g. Texas Hold’em and Omaha). It outranks all hands, except the royal flush, which is a variation of the straight flush with an ace as the high card. A player’s true odds of assembling a straight flush during a hand of poker are 0.028%
