is it my imagination it seems like 3oak comes up more often in DDB than JOB
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.
