# There is a game of solitaire using a single deck of 52 cards called Decade or 10-20-30. All 52 cards are laid out in a single vertical column and the object is to remove 3 consecutive cards that total either 10, 20 or 30 with the ace counting as one, 2 - 10 face value and Jacks, Queens & Kings counting ten. So, in order to win you must take out 17 groups of three leaving one remaining card. Is there any way to calculate the odds of winning this game of solitaire ..... I have played it probably a thousand times over the years and have never gotten down to just one card.

According to this website the odds are less than 1 in 25. Although in your experience this seems grossly inaccurate.
