Santa in Florida, USA firstname.lastname@example.org
So can the 3, 4 or 5 non-paired cards be from Ace to 8 or from Ace to 9 or from 2 to 8 or from 2 to 9?

we are interested in at least three unpaired cards from Ace to 8.. smile...
thanks for looking at this..
I think the required probability is
(32 x 28 x 24)/(52 x 51 x 50) assuming the raminaing two cards can be either paired or unpaired, greater or lesser than nine.
Character is who you are when no one is looking.
