View Full Version : chances of AA, KK and QQ

I should be able to figure this out, but what are the chances of AA, KK and QQ all being dealt in the same 9 handed table at Hold em (obviously).

This just happened to me while at a final table at Poker Stars.
Fortunately I got out with my KK before losing all my chips (only lost half). a Q did come on the flop, but he was allin.
But still seems amazing to have all three dealt.

I think I figured it out.
I figured the chance of someone having AA at a 9 person table as just under 4%.
Then for somebody else to have KK of the remaining 8 of a 50 card deck as 3.85%.
Then QQ of the other 7 of a 48 card deck as 3.66%.

Multiply those together to get 1 in 17714. So really more likely than I thought. Still sucked though.
