Just curious, where did you find that answer? I have always wanted to know the odds of that happening.The chance of getting the exact same cards twice in a row is 1 in 1326.

I think that this number is actually bigger, and let me explain why.
1 in 1326 actually is the probability of getting any specific hand (including the suit of the cards), here's why: let P be the chance of getting some hand.
Not considering the order, the chance of getting the first card is 2/52, because two cards are available.
The chance of getting the second card is now 1/51.
Because both events need to occur to satisfy our condition, P is the multiplication of both odds.
P = 2/52 * 1/51 = 1/1326.
Now, to repeat the process for another hand, we need to again multiply the probability of getting a specific hand 2 times in a row.
In this case,
P(of 2 in a row) = 1/1326 * 1/1326 = 1 in 1,758,276
A quite unlikely scenario hehe.
Again: this considers the specific suits. To not consider the suits, we would have to multiply P by the number of possible combinations for a hand (for example, for AA, there are 6 combinations, so the chance of having AA is 6/1326 = 1 in 221; to receive AA in two consecutive hands, multiply 1/221 * 1/221 = 1/48,841).
Hope it makes sense.
it's 1/1326 * 1/1326 = 1 in 1 758 276Yes, I made an error and forgot it's twice in a row.
enough to happen lolIn consecutive hands of receiving exactly the same 8s5c ? What is the probability?
