A very interesting hand was played out the other day at PokerStars when the Swedish poker pro Joel "Odonkor1" Nordkvist flopped a royal flush in an all in situation against his opponent Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin and took down a pot of nearly $40,000! The chance of getting a royal flush in Texas Holdem is 1 in 649,740, so you can probably figure out how great the feeling must be to take down such a big pot with this kind of hand!

Here is how the hand was played out:

A royal and he got paid off. Most of the times when someone has a royal everybody folds.
