One of these things is just like the other




I think this is the first time I've been dealt identical cards on two tables at once.

That would be incredible, since it happens every 1326 hands on average if you're playing two tables.

But not the first time you've written this ;-)

[FYI, RSS subscribers don't know that you've deleted posts; an edit may make more sense in some cases. I, for one, got a chuckle out of your momentary lapse. There's a famous "magic" trick based on a similar principle.]

I've been outed. A couple of weeks ago I did a similar post. As I always do, I looked it over one last time after posting it, and realized, with horror, that the cards were not identical. One was the Jh-2s, the other was Js-2h. They were in different orders, which is what fooled my eye. The post was up for less than a minute before I deleted it, and I thought I had removed it before anybody saw. Guess not.

Richard: Yes, it should have happened before, and likely has, but I've never noticed it before.

Talking about odds, I need your help to determine the probability on the following hand. It happened on a local casino at Monterrey, Mexico, last sunday.

Player 1: AA
Player 2: KQ diamonds
Board: As Td Ad Jd 8s
