DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Let us calculate the probability of this event occurring at a casino with a single MS game (by the way, I know which store you are talking about, so I will use my own empirical observations)...

So, the table is opened 18 hours a day with 4 civilian on average at the table playing 30 rounds per hour. The probability of a royal per hand dealt is 4/ (52 nCr 5) ~ 1/650000 (I don't think any civilian would fold a hand consisting of two of the five royal cards). Thus the probability per round is 4/650000. Now, from round to round, the results are independent and follow a Poisson distribution if our observable is the mean probability of hitting being 4/650000. How many rounds are played in a 3 week period: 21 days x 18 hr/day x 30 rounds/hr = 11340. Pugging in the numbers we arrive at the chance of 2 or more royals in that period of time at 0.002325. Yes it is low, but not inconceivable....

Quote:IbeatyouracesIt happened at Mototcity Casino, no secret about naming it. Also this wasn't third hand knowledge. I actually saw both hands. I was not playing on the games though.

I don't trust hearsay (especially those "people" at MC... just put a quarter on your trips man!!! You would be winning a lot more). If you actually witnessed these event, then it is far rarer than the numbers I give because you are not there 24/7 let alone 18 hours a day! But not as crazy as you think...

My girlfriend hit four aces last night. Of course she raised third street with ace four off. When we got to the room I said "You know I just made you 400 right?" She didn't care.

She didn't care ??? I'm sure she does care.
