I do NOT know for a fact those are correct odds. It is in the Feb 14, issue, on page 88. Card Player mag.
think it through.
5 cards visable, makes ten 2 card possibilties. 1/2,1/3,1/4,1/5,2/3,2/4,2/5,3/4,3/5,4/5
each up card carries a 1/13 chance of being an ace, another 1/13 chance for the king. 2/13 chance at any card. Times 2 for the combo 4/13 chance, times 10 combos, equals 40/13 chances.
Its at this point I get lost.
If somehow we divide that 40 by 5 we end up with 8 and 8/13 is in the 60% range. If someone with healthy braincells could clarify this,,,,wow!
This is probably a great example of not only my lost math skills and critical thinking, but maybe others suffer similiar barnicalized brain cells.
