Probability Texas-Holdem

  1. May 4, 2009 #1
    If I am dealt an ace and ten of hearts, what is the probability I will get a flush? And what is the probability I get a straight?

    I want to say the flush is:
    (11 choose 3)/(50 choose 3)

    And for the straight:
    (12 choose 3)/(50 choose 3)

    I am not sure. Any ideas?

    Hi asept! :smile:

    Please don't multiple-post.

    And you'd get more answers if you told us what a straight and a flush are.

    (and try using the X2 and X2 tags just above the Reply box :wink:)
