Me and 2 buddies played a single table 10 man satellite at the Rio. What's crazy is we were the final 3 and chopped the money. Assuming everyone has the same skill at the table, what's our odds of finishing in the final 3?

I get the same 1 in 120
easily simulated also

3 Choose 3 * 7 others Choose 0 / 10 total Choose 3
1*1/ (10*9*8/3*2*1) = 1/120
