What are the odds of that?

Podiman Can someone help me figure this out?

What are the odds of getting the same 2 cards, 3 hands in a row (6 handed), no suits?

I just got
9cQd
9cQd
9cQh

on PS.com.

Thanks!

How do you get the .07%? That's only 14 to 1 and at those odds you'd see the same two card combo pretty frequently.

I figure 100% you get any initial hand x 12/1326 (you get it again...1326 possible hand combinations and 12 ways to deal it) x 12/1326 (another independent event) = 12,000 to 1
