re: Poker & any body know the odds to this problem?
On a pure probability basis, assuming 10 people of exact same ability had exact same chance, possibility of winning 7 consecutive 10 player SnG's is 10 million to 1. You'll obviously reduce these odds significantly if you are a good player, but still the likelihood of winning 7 straight is very remote, as you would have to avoid numerous bad beat opportunities.
I have wondered what sort of cards you would get if you were on the 7th go. There's been numerous posts as to whether online poker is rigged, and I certainly dont believe it is, but here is a situation where 9 of the people playing would cost Noble $60 or so, whilst the 10th would cost them $1,000,000. Where do the generated cards come from - Noble!?
