Default Re: What are the odds of 100 hands no PP?

Bruce, I know this isn't my question, but I was wondering if you could provide any information as to what those numbers mean? Like where do you get the 16/17 and such...thanks a bunch

Trying to learn,

The probability of being dealt a pair is 52/52 * 3/51 = 1/17, so 16/17 is the probability of not getting dealt a pair. The probability of not getting a pair 100 times in a row is (16/17)^100.
