4 INCREDIBLE Straight Flushes In Poker Poker

4 INCREDIBLE Straight Flushes in Poker

by Donna Amo Posted on 13 Jan, 2021

The straight flush in poker is the 2nd best hand ranking that one can get in the game. Although not as rare as the royal flush, it is still a hand that will help you win the pot against most of your competitors. A straight flush is formed when a player has five cards from the same suit in a sequence.

Here is an example of a straight flush:

The straight flush can only be trumped by a royal flush or a straight flush with a higher sequence. Many poker players have gotten lucky with the straight flush, scoring it at the last moment. Here are a few of them.

1. Kelly Minkin

While playing in the MILLIONS North America 2019 Main Event, Kelly Minkin decides to bet holding 3❤️2❤️, something many players would immediately fold. When the flop opened, it seemed like she was losing the hand especially with her opponent holding a K❤️J❤️. Luckily, she won the pot with the drop of the turn card. Looks like the poker gods were watching over Minkin that day.

2. Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu is a well-known name in the poker industry and this clip tells us why. In a heads-up battle, Negreanu does not only win with a straight flush he even predicts it. With him and his opponent having equal chances for the pot, Negreanu shows almost a psychic ability when he correctly predicts both the turn and the river card. You could say he made all the right calls to victory.

3. Vanessa Selbst

With three WSOP bracelets to her name, Vanessa Selbst is one poker player everyone needs to watch out for. In this video, Selbst manages to hit an incredible straight flush on the turn. Her perfect poker face fools her opponent McClung into calling her all-in move at the river. Although McClung holds a full house, it still does not beat Selbst’s straight flush.

4. Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier

This time it was Betrand ‘Elky’ Grospellier who took the pot against Vanessa Selbst. Although Selbst was holding pocket aces and was more likely to win, the cards were in favour of Elky when the river hit and gave him a straight flush. It was a close call and Elky certainly looked smug when he won the large pot.
