The probability that the second card doesn't pair the first = 48/51

The probability that the third card doesn't pair either of the first two = 44/50

The probability that the fourth card doesn't pair either of the first three = 40/49

and so on

The probability that none of the nine cards form a pair is

48/51 x 44/50 x 40/49 x 36/48 x 32/47 x 28/46 x 24/45 x 20/44 x 16/43

which is about 1/52.75

...but that wasn't what you asked; you asked about "pair or better", and my answer doesn't take into account straights or flushes.

The link is right, but you used the wrong table.

Should be (69,788,040 / 3,679,075,400)
