A poker had of 5 cards is drawn from standard 52 card deck w/o replacement.
What is the probability we get 4 cards of one kind?
If do not get 4 of a kind on 1st draw, we keep the highest for which we have several of a kind (if none, keep only the highest card) then throw away the others and replace w/fresh cards. Can only do this once.
What is the probability we get 4 of a kind if we follow this strategy?
