so there are 52 cards in the deck before dealt to any player!
you have none
there are 13 suited cards
2 on board now, and total 3 card on flop
so there are 11 suited and 52-3-2=47 total cards left.
for giving player, he has two cards , need to be 2 cards from 11 suited among the 47 cards.
therefor the possibility is
11/47 X (11-1)/(47-1)=5.08%
