A flush wouldn't beat four of a kind. A flush implies that all the cards are of the same suit (ie a hand of only hearts). A straight flush implies that the cards also must be in order (ie 5 of hearts, 6 of hearts, 7 of hearts, 8 of hearts, 9 of hearts). A full house would beat a flush but not a 4 of a kind or straight flush.

Though the article says it's equivalent to a Straight Flush it's not a correct answer. Running flush seems to refer to a game called three-card brag which is - you might have guessed it - played with 3 cards only. So there can't be a 4 of a kind to beat.

The plural of quantum, in English, is quantums. The plural of quantum in Latin is quanta. Since it's an English word, no matter which language it originated from, its plural form follows the rules of the English grammar. Else-wise, the plural of the word 'metaphor' would be, as in Greek, 'metaphorai'. But that's not the case, because that way we would have to find every time the origin language of every word and form the plural based on that language's grammar rules. But that's not the case in any language. Much less in English.
