Default yea right this wouldnt happens if it wasnt rigged

so i hold 10h8h. flop comes

Ah 7h Qh

so i bet and whatever, two people stay in.

and we all go to the river, no more hearts appear.

one guy has 2 6 of hearts

other guy has

j5h

omfg youve got to be kidding me!!!



so can one of you math geniuses tell me what kind of chance this has of happening if possible?

( on a side note, this was pokerstars, so i guess it wasnt all that uncommon for this crap to happen)

The moral is don't play with 2 6 suited kids.

I saw this happen and off of the top of my head, it's about .2% when 3 people hold suited cards off the same suit.. Not that rare at all.

That's not rare at all, think about it. Who would play 26 suited or J5 suited? Those are usually hands thrown to the muck, these guy's stayed in and the flop just happened to be 3 hearts.

I'm not saying the odds of that happening are small but good players don't play that crap unless it's heads up. You were the only one who actually had a starting hand.

My guess is you had a couple donks at your table.

Mental what you dont know is, 2 weeks ago you cut this black jetta of the road. The guys name is Bobby and bobby's dad works with online gambling services. After he made several phone calls he managed to get some friends to set up a system to set you up forever. So remember that next time you are driving.

I have seen flush over flush over flush a few times in the last year. I have seen set over set numerous times and have even seen set over set over set.

Probaility implies possibility.

People need to realize that statistically improbable is not statistical impossible.

I don't feel that really adds anything, I just felt like it was a clever thing to say.
