I was playing in Blackhawk last night. I saw 14 pocket aces in 2 hours. What are the odds of that?

Do you think the shuffler was broke?

Lets say you played 50 hands/h so it makes 100 hands total. You will get aces 1/51+1/50. So it is only &lt;40% that you even get aces on that 100 hand run. (1/51+1/50)^14 wich comes down to 2.33849641 × 10^(-20) wich is 4.27625203 × 10^19. Well my calculation shows only when you get aces 14 times in a row. If someone could tell me how to calculate those 86 other hands in too I would appreciate thanks.

Also, if the OP meant "saw" as in "any player had them", it makes the event a lot less unusual - he'd expect to see them about 5 times in 100 hands anyway. 14 is still a lot, but I don't think the autoshuffler is broken, unless it can pick the aces out and stack the deck. /images/graemlins/smile.gif

And maybe 14 was the number of Aces he saw. So thats only 7 times! /images/graemlins/tongue.gif
