 04-06-2012, 04:01 AM #2 veteran   Join Date: Jun 2011 Posts: 2,263 Re: badugi There are 4 ways to choose the suit of card 1...3 ways to choose the suit of card 2...2 ways to choose the suit of card 3...and 1 way to choose the suit of card 4. This gives 4*3*2*1 = 24 combinations for a dealt A234 rainbow Now how many combinations of 4 cards can we get from a 52-card deck? There 52 cards for card 1, 51 for card 2, 50 for card 3, and 49 for card 4. But any of these four cards can be rearranged to make the same hand (e.g. 8 7 6 5 = 7 6 5 8) so we also need to divide by 4*3*2*1 = 24. So the total number of 4-card combinations is: 52*51*50*49/24 = 270,725. So the probability of being dealt the nuts in badugi is 24/270,725 =~ 1 in 11,280 To compare to triple draw lowball: the dealt nuts 75432 comes 1 in 2548.

Also we played I estimate around 40 hands of 2-7 razz (like 6 rotations) and people were rolled up 3 times, that was unlikely
