Fantastic thread I now know, that everything according to the new law of Ergo
is 50/50.
Its brilliant for those hard to make pot odds type decisions, whether to even think about implied odds. No all that is history think Ergo.
As the Meerkats would say simples thinks Ergo.
We could carry on even further for the advanced study of Ergonamics (the other spelling taken!) and study Ergo's theory of relativity.
This is the study of what are the chances of any hereditory ties between two people, if
you can't be bothered with all the study go to the shortcut in earlier teachings.
Simples they either are or their not 50/50.

Bye for now the medication is starting to kick in!!

ok so you will get dealt KK in 1 of 225 hands. To get it three times I think it should be 225x225x225=11390625 to 1 so in % it is 0,000008779149519890261%
So is my math correct or I'm retarded?

Simples 50/50 on maths correct.
Retarded your not, end of chat.
But by my reckoning
Number of possible poker starting hands:
(52*51)/2 = 1326

Combinations of Kings: 6

Odds of being dealt Kings:
6/1326 = 1/221
Therefore 221x221x221 = 10793861 to 1
so in percent 0.000009264525455719691
Its so close it really does not matter.

Also, dont forget that you can get dealt AA 3 times, QQ 3 times, JJ 3 times... and you would probably ask same question; I dont think that KK are that unique for you that other hands wouldnt matter.
Also, AK for example has more combinations than AA or KK, so if your question is "Getting dealt same hand 3 times in a row", its definitely bigger chance.
