Poker Pro Patrick Leonard Hits Two Royal Flushes in 20 Minutes!

While hitting a royal flush is extremely rare for a poker player, Patrick Leonard hit it not just once but twice, all within a short 20-minute timeframe. This happened during the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) series. Known in the poker world as “Pads,” Patrick Leonard is a formidable opponent on the felts and has already taken down two WCOOP titles in this series and a Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) event earlier in May, marking his seventh career victory. 

Competing in the 2023 WCOOP, Leonard, a 2022 WSOP bracelet winner, achieved an incredible feat on Monday. He hit a statistical improbability when he pulled out two royal flushes in just 20 minutes.

The first royal flush materialized during the final table of the $2,100 8-Max No-Limit Hold’em (Progressive KO High Roller) event. With just four players remaining, Leonard, holding Kc Qc, saw the flop reveal 10c Ac Jc, granting him a royal flush. While the specific details of the hand remain undisclosed, the odds of flopping a royal flush in the game of poker are an astonishing 1 in 650,000.

Leonard’s unbelievable streak did not end there. Just 20 minutes later, he hit second royal flush, this time on the turn in the $109 No-Limit Hold’em (Progressive KO Series Saver) tournament against “99Palanke.” With the board running Ac Jd Ad Qd and Leonard holding Kd 10d, the action escalated.
