One of the statistics that Mike Caro gives is that in a ten handed game, odds are 70.5:1 that someone has an ace or a king.

How about if there is an ace on the flop, what's the likelihood of someone having another ace?

Or to put it another way, of any card on the flop, what is the probability that someone has paired it?
