I've had 1 in all my life playing poker, it was pretty hard keeping a straight face and unfortunately it was during a friendly game, I think I won $30 out of it...
I have about the same story except I busted a guy with one in the middle of a tourney, which is great but doesn't help much.
Cool Story Bro time:
Never had a royal flush, but did get a straight flush that ended up being 6 cards long (yeah that doesn't count, but crazy to see that in your hand). Playing with a friend and his group of friends so no one else really knew me, but a friendly game. Guy I was up against ended up hitting an almost impossible to see coming full house off the flop. I think he was the big blind so he limped in with something like a 3 and a 5 and the flop came down with I think two 5's and a 3...but also 2 clubs. He slow played it obviously to bait the flush (I had the Ace of clubs and either the 2 or 4 of clubs. The next card not only completes my Ace high flush, but gives me the straight flush. He bets big...I re-raise...he re-raises...I get confused because nothing can beat me at that point and re-raise again and he calls. Next card gives extends my straight flash to 6 cards and we do our little betting dance until all the money is there...he emphatically throws down his full house with an in your face and go screw your flush kind of statement and I respond calmly that yes...I have the flush...but its a straight flush.
He looked like a ghost the rest of the night as he stared blankly into the distance.
