Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have no background in Probability and Statistics, but I do understand some Calculus, so I think I will be able to understand your answer if you so choose to answer.

The game is called Magic: The Gathering. In this game you build a deck of sixty cards or more, but sixty is the number I want to know about. In the beginning of the game you draw 7 cards. In the opening hand, it is crucial that I draw at least 2 cards of which there are 23 of in the 60 card deck.

After the opening hand, you draw one card per turn. So the number of cards in the deck is decreasing. I need a formula that takes this into account.

I am sure this question has been answered already, so links are much appreciated.

Thanks everyone
