I am studying probability at the moment, and find myself often having to deal with calculating the probability of poker hands, and thus have to be crystal clear on the definition of poker hands.
A straight is supposed to be any sequence of 5 cards. However, the following hands are excluded from being considered straights:
- K, A, 2, 3, 4
- Q, K, A, 2, 3
- J, K, Q, A, 2
Why is that?
