If you know that the other person has neither joker, the odds he has a set with 3 cards are 33.41%; the odds he has a set if he has 4 cards are 77.80%.

And since when do you get to play Risk (the board game) with people from all over the world? It's much more fun this way. Although now that I think about it, I'm much better at beating friends and family members than all-comers.

33,41?? why is that? i would v'e said 33.34%.
also about the 4 cards odds, i disregard the 3 first ones, and i just think of the odds of getting a set before receiving my 4th, which would be 66.66%. But if you look at it as a whole, you are right, 77.78%
