What Are The Odds of Two Flushes in Poker?

When you play Texas Hold’em for any significant number of hands, you’ll eventually see a scenario where two players turn over a flush in the same hand. Such a scenario leads to one of the worst feelings in poker for the player with the losing hand in a flush versus flush setup.

What are the chances of two players making a flush in a hand of Texas Hold’em? Let’s take a look:

What Are The Odds of Two Flushes in Poker?

In Texas Hold’em, if you’re dealt any two suited cards, the probability of making a flush on the flop is one in every 119 hands. This translates to flopping a flush around 8.4 percent of the time when you have two suited cards

Of all possible two-card starting hands, suited hands make up 23.5% of those combinations. To flop a flush, you must first be dealt a suited hand, then advance to the flop, then see three of the same suited cards hit the board.

Flopping a flush often means you have the winning hand. Unless you hold the ace-high version of the flush, however, dragging the pot isn’t a sure thing.

If two players hold suited hole cards of the same suit, both will flop a flush at a probability of once every 206 hands. This equates to a 4.85 percent chance of two players flopping a flush.

In other words, for every 20 times you flop a flush, another player will also show up with a flush once in that span (mathematically speaking).

The probability of three players flopping a flush is once every 433 hands. In other words, if three players are in a hand, and the flop comes three cards of the same suit, there’s a one-in-433 chance that all three players made a flush.
