Maybe a short summary: For the sake of this post, the question is really what are the odds of the board showing any royal flush. There are two answers to this depending on whether you are playing at the table and are given two cards or if you are just watching the table and don't have two cards.
Obviously if you're in the hand and have two cards the numbers, then from your perspective the odds of it happening are slightly better because the pool of cards to choose from is two cards smaller.
