AA versus KK versus QQ
I must apologise to Titan - after berating them for always coming up with this little confrontation, I ran into the same on Full Tilt last night. I've now seen it twice in the last couple of weeks, and it happened in the last Cardschat Titan tournament (which I didn't play in). Anyone want to have a stab at the odds
? Of course, it depends on the number of players playing (the lower the number of players, the less likely it is to occur), but here is my stab at the maths assuming an average 7 player table;
Likelihood of being dealt AA, or KK or QQ = 220/1 each. 220 x 220 x 220 = 10,648,000.
Number of different 3 player permatations on a 7 player table = 35. So 10,648,000 / 35 = 304,228/1
Have I got this right? The 2 I saw in the last fortnight were on 5 player and 6 player tables, so the odds will be higher. Maybe I should start with the odds of being dealt either AA KK QQ, then times that by the odds of getting one of the remaining 2 pairs, and finally times by 220 for the last pair, but I cant reconcile this with the number of permatations of different players. Even doing it this was makes if over 80,000/1.
I'm positive i've posted before about the occurance of these 3 hands at the same time before, so this seems to PROVE that Pokersites are juiced!? Is anyone else noticing these hands, or is it just me?
