Default double A-A

i was playing my usual poker group, me and a few friends.

Anyways today i was doing exceptionally bad, i was out €15, which for our group is a hefty sum(we play pretty low stakes) and i was ready to call it a day. But then i got american airlines. As usual, i checked it pre-flop and an ace came up. a friend of mine had 2 pair or something, and went all in. No doubt i won. This brought me back in the game and i was happily stacking my chips when i look at my next cards. American Airlines again! And this time the friend who i had just taken more than half his stack goes all in. As happy as a schoolgirl i call, and win. knocking him clean outa the game.

This is my most proud moment of poker that i have ever come across

In 1 tournie I got AA 5 times and not too shockingly went on to win it although it was hard not to.

I wouldn't really regard it as a moment to be proud of. I think you should concentrate on good plays you have made and be proud of them. Being dealt AA is something anybody can achieve

Someone has been dealt AA dozens of times in a row. With the billions upon billions of hands dealt, it is stiatistically negligible that this hasn't happened yet.

We haven't heard of this guy because he was killed for "cheating".

Don't let anything surprise you.

This forum has been done before but I had 3 in a row. Not only that but I won all of them which lately has been a chore.

Why does everyone get this wrong. It is 1/221.


Ok we start playing cards.
Hand 1, aces? no
Hand 2, aces? no
Hand 3, aces? no
...
Hand x, wow i finally got aces!

Ok now reshuffle the deck, what are the odds of getting aces now? the same as they ever were - 1/221

If you said, ok im gonna deal you 2 cards, then shuffle then deal them again, what are the odds you get aces both times? THAT is 1/48841. They are radically different.
