    Great card game question: Pitch

    I am playing a version of pitch in which the 5 of trump is worth 5 points. In my hand I have A K Q of trump and intend to take the first three tricks. If four other people are playing and there are 10 trump cards divided between them, what is the probability that I get the 5. When trump is led other players must play trump if they have it. Assume all trump has been dealt.

    You need to work out the chance of a player having 4 trumps.
    A perm of 4 from 13 is the number of ways he can do this.

    So a single way would be....
    Did you explain the rules of the game?
    Does not look like you bothered to.
