Of playing two (or three) tables of HE and get dealt the same cards at both.
Not just the same values, but the same suits too.

Doesn't it depend on how many hands have been dealt?

When are you counting from? I would imagine if it's from when online poker was invented it's an absolute certainty.

No need to thank me.

It's the same as getting exactly the same two cards in successive hands.

I've had that happen a few times.

Thanks all.
Better answers than the question really deserved.
In hindsight I’m embarrassed to have asked it.

Don't worry. If you embarrass yourself often enough you start to build up an immunity.

It's so liberating. You can do things like eat the last piece of cake, have a wash in a river, ask an insanely hot girl for her telephone number etc, all with impunity.

Or daydream whilst walking into a supermarket and eventually wonder why someone behind is saying in an increasingly loud voice "YOU'RE A BIT CHEEKY AREN'T YOU?" having missed the fact there is a 200-metre queue to get in.

Ask me how I know.
