Default Re: I need the math, 4 cards to a flush and 3 left to draw.

All very good points, Bruce...I agree completely. I shouldn't have assumed that Fly would know how to find m1, m2, etc. That was pretty confusing of me <bonks self on head with a hammer>.

I won't even mention how I'm on a 7-game losing streak at tic-tac-toe.

"Confusing innocent bystanders since 10/08/02"

P.S. Instead of m1=m2=m3, the 'special case' is m2=m1-1 and m3=m1-2 (likewise for n). Unless you're drawing with replacement, that is -- in that case m1=m2=m3 and n1=n2=n3. However, if you're drawing with replacement and the dealer says he's going to tear up a flush card after each draw, well, then m1=m2=m3, n2=n1-1, and n3=n1-2.

P.P.S. Actually, I do think irchans is better at this than I am. Not only is he better at math, but he's also very good at explaining things clearly (which I pretty much suck at). [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
