Hey guys.

I was playing a game recently and had a question about the probability of two of the items in the game dropping twice in a row. Let's say there are 100 different items in the item pool that you can get from a treasure room, each having an equal probability to be found. Is the probability of having some item in the pool dropping twice in a row the same as having a specific item drop twice in a row? Does my question even make sense?

Thanks.
