Default Re: Possible Solution

Dear Cya,

So you solved the problem for a one card hand not a two card (holdem) hand....
You indicated about 117 hands and wrote,

"P.S. A quickie computer sim of 20,000 games gave an average of 117.65 hands."

Cya, of course if your solution is valid than you can use the same approach for holdem hands.
Unless I don't understand Huh's problem statement -- I thought Huh was talking about 2 card holdem hands. There are 1326 distinct holdem hands in a 52 card deck. Therefore it has to be 1326 or more "usually way more" deals to get dealt every holdem hand combination.

Most warm regards,

Carl William
