I picked up a genuine yarborough tonight, no card higher than a nine, which I can't recall having before. After the board the woman on my right said she'd only ever had one in her life, and as she looked about 83 I decided to take a photo of it, thinking it was exceptionally rare.

Looking it up it's a probability of 1 in every 1828 hands - so fairly rare but you'll likely pick one up every couple of years if you played a club game once a week.
