# What's the % of this happening

Hey all,

Not sure if that's the correct place to ask this, but I'm having a bit of a difficulty calculating the probability of the below set of events.
We thought it was a pretty unique occurrence which shouldn’t really happen too often, so just wondering what’s the % chance of all of this coming together.
Basically I think there were 3 players in the hand (if not an issue please also say how big is the chance with 6 players)

Everyone got pocket pairs (22, 33 and JJ)
All went all in and everyone hit a set on the flop straight away (so trips for everyone)
Turn & River cards didn’t add or change anything.
I know the general odds of getting a pocket pair or hitting a set, however for 3 people to get pockets and also hitting on flop in the same hand shouldn’t really happen too often I suppose ?

Anyways we had a great laugh over it and just wondering how many hands we need to play for it to happen again (and that time hopefully I’ll have JJ+ rather than 33)

Also is there a probability calculator which lets you input hands like this and find out the %.
Maybe I didn't know where to look but all I saw concentrated on finding out your winning percentage/equity and stuff like that.
This way I won’t have to trouble again with a trivial curiosity issue.
