To pick any two specific cards from a straight deck is about 1 in 1300 (52*51 / 2). So to get exactly the same 3 times on the trot is 2 billion (American) to 1

I have a rule that I made up for myself.  lol  If I am dealt the same hand 3 times in a row, I MUST play it on the third time.  No matter what the cards are.  Sounds kinds silly but it has worked for me.
