If it's two weeks, odds are only 1 in 3000 if you don't care who won the first week.

if it's an infinite amount of weeks, then it's a 100% probability.

if it's a specific/distinct 2 weeks, then it's 1 / (3000^2)

So that about 1 in 9million that I would win the next 2 weeks in a row?

Yes. And about 1 in 3000 for anyone to win back to back weeks.

If it's a random person then 1 in 3000. If it's a specific person, then 1 in 9 million. Same goes with playing cards. Getting dealt the same hand in hold em back to back is 1 in 1326. Saying you'll get As, Ac back to back is 1 in 1,758,276
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!
