Jan. I was sitting next to my wife, she got an ace high straight, I rolled over 3 aces, sorry this was three card. what are the odds of this happening,

Ace high straight (including a straight flush): p = (12/52)*(8/51)*(4/50) = 0.00289593.

Three Aces from remainder: p = (3/49)*(2/48)*(1/47) = 0.00005428.

Overall, the probability is: p = (0.00289593)*(0.00005428) = 0.000000157182.

The odds are: 6362037-to-1.

I hope you made the "Pair Plus" bet.
