What are the odds of being dealt pocket aces (with no diamond) and then all 5 cards being diamonds.

If possible, show your math so I can see how it is calculated.

C(3,2)/C(52,2) * C(13,5)/C(50,5) is the formula, I think.

Yup...looks right to me about 727654 to 1. Assuming you already have the A-A, the first part drops out and you just have C(13,5)/C(50,5) which is a more reasonable 1645.3 to 1.

He asked for odds for 1st AND 2nd things happen, so the first part should stay there...

I'm well aware. He also asked for an explanation. I took it a step further and explained that the odds increase dramatically due to the A-A being a factor. My apologies for being thorough...and thanks for your analysis.
