Are you trying to figure out bad beat odds?

Here is the complete problem that Im facing: I need to figure out the probability for any random player to get Aces full of jacks or better, using both his hole cards, with a random number of opponents (we can say a seven handed table on average), to qualify for a high hand jackpot that I'm trying to incorporate into a poker promotion. (I work for a casino.) The player only needs to get this hand, he doesn't need it beaten etc. Basically it should be a number around 1/700 I'm thinking because the odds of getting ANY full house or better is 1/560.

The odds will be greater than 1/700 for sure.

First the probability of getting any full house is approximately:

C(13,1)*C(4,3)*C(12,1)*C(4,2)*C(11,2)*C(4,1)*C(4,1) / C(52,7) = (13)(4)(12)(6)(55)(4)(4)/ (133,784,560)

= (3,294,720)/(133,784,560)

= 2.46% or about 1 in 40

The probability of getting quads or a straight flush are comparatively negligible so the probability of getting any full house or better can be said to be about 1 in 40.

Now the probability of getting Aces full of Jacks is approximately:

C(1,1)*C(4,3)*C(3,1)*C(4,2)*C(11,2)*C(4,1)*C(4,1) / C(52,7) = (1)(4)(3)(6)(55)(4)(4)/ (133,784,560)

= ( 63,360 )/(133,784,560)

= 0.0474% or about 1 in 2,000

Again the probability of getting quads or a straight flush are comparatively negligible so the probability of getting Aces full of Jacks or better can be said to be about 1 in 2,000.

Now if the requirement is to use both of your hole cards then this will exclude (2/7)+(5/7)(2/6)= approx. 1/2 of the results. Therefore, the probability reduces to (0.0474%)(1 - 1/2) = 0.0226% or about 1 in 4,000.

This also doesn't consider folding. Although if both hole cards are needed, not many of the hands that qualify would fold either.
