Also, I've come to the conclusion that it is impossible to win a tournament if you never get dealt one of these hands for the entire tourney, which is the case for me most of the time.
Actually, it's more than 1 per hundred hands It's 1 every 73-74 hands. I know this isn't sound math, but if there are 9 others, that's once every 9 or so hands that one of them will get it, or once an orbit or so. The math's off, because on person's hand affects the odds
of the next person getting a premium hand as well, but I think that's a good estimate.
