      Whenever this sort of thing happens, you gotta remember there are only 52 cards in the deck, that's not that many. Sure they can form a lot of different combinations, but no one combination is more likely or less likely happen than any other.

      K :spade: K :club: vs J :spade: J :club:

      A :club: K :heart: 7 :diamond: J :heart: J :diamond:

      is no more unlikely than

      K :spade: K :club: vs J :spade: J :club:

      6 :club: 2 :diamond: 9 :heart: 4 :spade: Q :diamond:

      But of course one is much more likely to have you yell "RIGGED"

      80% of these 205476480 combinations will have you win, while 20% will make you lose.

      That's 41095296 ways to lose with KK vs JJ, this way is just one of those. Better get used to it then, hm?

      i went AI with a guy mw with TT on Txx and he had 88. turn and river gave him quads. the odds for that i think are around 3/1000 so it will happen once in a while :)

      not sure if this is correct. if one player holds kk and another hold jj, then the chances of a k or a j landing on the board is less than that of any of the other cards (eg, there are twice as many 9s left as ks or js).

      That's why I put the suits in. There's 52 cards and only one of each unless there's something seriously wrong with the deck :f_biggrin:

      Do you think either of you made a mistake in this hand? If not, be happy; you both played it well, though I like reraising to 400 a little more.
