Default Re: chances of flush vs flush

Pardon my ignorance but how did you arrive at there being 24 combos of someone having a hand with two spades? I thought that since there are 8 spades we could 8*7/2 and
come up with 28 combos. Also if there is a 2.2% chance of a player having spades I assume you're multiplying 2.2 by
4 and coming up with 8.8. But isn't 2.2 the percentage of someone having two spades, not necessarily two higher spades? Thanks for your help. It's been 25 years since I have taken a class in math.
