    100 hands experiment

    So, yesterday I was bored and decided to conduct a little experiment. I shuffled the deck and drew 2 cards. I did this 100 times.

    It took me 50 hands to get QQ and 73 to get AA. If you play uber tight, that's a boring session.

    All toll I got about 15 playable hands.

    Here's an interesting thing I also discovered. If you play any Ace you get, it could degrade your game by as much as 10%.

    Add in any suited cards with that, and you're looking at a 15% leak.

    Try it out, it's a fun experiment.

    I've done similar things with a deck of cards when bored ... thing you need to remember though is 100 hands is way too small of a sample to be reliable.

    You got QQ 1 out of 100 and you got AA 1 out of 100. Statistically you should get those hands about 1 out of 220 if your sample size is big enough.

    Interesting thread, but not a reliable number for statistics. too small of a sample

    I rather play Poker than sitting and shuffle my deck and see what kind of hand I'm getting.

    yeah i agree, your sample was too small. i have done the same thing and i only got to 175 hands and that was too small also. it takes a long time to do this and play a desent amount of hands.
