Calculate the odds of a straight flush in a 5 card pat hand.

The number of possible poker hands is:

(52C5) = 2,598,960

The number of possible straight flushes is:

4*10 = 40

Of those 4 are royal flushes. If we include those the probability of a straight flush is:

40 / 2,598,960 = 1 / 64,974 ≈ 0.0015%

If we exclude the royal flushes the probability is:

36 / 2,598,960 = 3 / 216,580 ≈ 0.0014%
