I'm having a hard time to accept that there are more combinations to make a full house than to make three of kind.


Keep in mind that there are only 9 ranks, and you're using 7 cards to make a 5-card hand. When 3 of the 7 cards are the same rank, it is much more likely that the remaining 4 cards will contain a pair.

On a recent theme, this deck could be the basis for several funky bar bets. Even money that 7 cards will show 2 pair vs. 1 pair, etc.
