Gambling and probability have been an idea as before the invention of poker. The evolution of probability theory from the late 1400s was imputed to betting; when playing a game with high stakes, players wished to understand what the chance of winning is. In 1494, Fra Luca Paccioli introduced his work Summa de arithmetica, geometria, proportioni e proportionalita that was the initial written text on chance. Motivated by Paccioli’s work, Girolamo Cardano (1501-1576) made further improvements in probability theory. His job from 1550, titled Liber de Ludo Aleae, discussed the concepts of chance and how they were directly related to gambling. As it was not released until after his passing But, his work didn’t receive any instant recognition. Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) also contributed to probability theory. His buddy, Chevalier de M??r??, was an avid gambler with the wish to become wealthy out of it. De M??r?? attempted a new mathematical approach to a gaming game but did not get the desired results. Determined to understand why his strategy was unsuccessful, he consulted with Pascal. Pascal’s work with this problem began an important correspondence between him and fellow mathematician Pierre de Fermat (1601-1665). Communication through letters, the two continued to exchange their ideas and ideas. These interactions led to fundamental probability theory’s conception. For this day, many gamblers still rely on the fundamental concepts of probability theory so as to make informed decisions while betting.

The next chart enumerates that the (absolute) frequency of each hand, provided all combinations of 5 cards randomly drawn from a complete deck of 52 without replacement. Wild cards are not considered. In this graph:

Distinct hands is that the number of different ways to draw the hand, not counting different suits.

Frequency is the number of ways to draw on the hand, including the same card worth in suits.
