Let's assume no one would ever fold a hand better than four 8s. Then you've got the same odds of catching it, then subsequently getting outdrawn are the same as everyboday else. That means your odds are equal to the number of hands you play, divided by the number of total hands played by all players. (that's not 100 percent true, but close enough for our purposes) if you play an average number of hands, your odds are on in however many players there are at the cite.
