poker hand question
I have a small problem
I read that the there are 10x(4^5) possibilities for a straight (royal and straight flush included)
But I thought that there were 10x(20x16x12x8x4) possibilites
My highest card can be 5,6,7,...,K
So i have 10 possibilities for the highest card
Now I want to draw a straight 1,2,3,4,5
I have 20 possibilities for the first one:1 till 5 and there are 4 suits
for example I draw 1(spades), then I have 16 possibilities for the next card (4 suits and 4 cards).
What is wrong with my thinking?
In a straight is the 'low' card and is the high card.
There are 10 values for : Ace to ten.
There are 4 suits possible for .
The same can be said of each
I understand that, but what is wrong with my reasoning
that there should be 20x16x12x8x4(x10) possibilities?
Divide your answer by (5!).
