But is a royal flush a fundamentally different hand than a straight flush? I'd argue "uhhh, no." I don't know how classifying a royal flush as a distinctly different hand ranking than a straight flush became the standard, because it's the most tilting thing possible. It's a nickname at best, no different than Broadway or Speed Limit.

The only good answer I can come up with is that USPCC/the Playing Card Mafia decided they needed an even number of possible hands for their godforsaken hand rankings charts, which is a bullsh!t reason to corrupt the minds of generations of new poker players. Maybe I'm just neurotic, but gtfo my face with this "royal flush is a separate hand ranking." Where do we stop? This aggression will not stand, man.

It'll take a little getting used to but it gets easy quick. Search "royal flush", check Titles Only, and you should get it as second result.
