Fred was playing poker with his three friends Henry, John and Mack and had just dealt a hand for each.

Fred saw that he had an Ace and wondered what the probability was that each of the other players also had an Ace.

Later in the evening after the game, Fred decided to write a computer program that would deal ten thousand hands of poker to check how often four players each would be dealt an Ace.

Then Fred wondered what would be the similar case for bridge hands dealt, for which purpose he changed a few input parameters for his computer program and received a surprise answer.

*On the average, how many bridge hand deals did Fred find gave an Ace to each player?*
