    With all due respect ... it's probably just your imagination.

    Ha! I've often felt the same way... "I'm the three of a kind king!" when playing DDB

    With less than zero respect, it's your imagination.

    In theory, 3 OAK should come up slightly more in DDB than it does in JoB due to the way you play the hands.

    In DDB you're often going to keep a single ace instead of something like AJ or AQ unsuited, which will give you a slightly better shot at 3 OAK. You're also going to toss away the lower pair if you're dealt two pair, aces up, which gives you a better chance at 3 OAK.

    With that said, it's probably still your imagination.

    Let me propose another trend in DDB - four to a royal. I have never had a royal in live play (had several on WinPoker and other simulators) but have had many of every other possible hand.

    Lately I have had insane runs of four to a royal, sometimes 4 or 5 in a two hour period. On a recent cruise, I was in "chasing mode" and saw a half dozen one evening.... all on DDB. Insane tease.

    So I guess your trends are what you observe. I do sometimes take pictures of my fours to a royal - yes I like punishing myself.
