What are the odds of getting a bad beat twice when holding AA, against the same player in the span of 6 minutes 11 seconds?

I did my calculations, made some new exponential formulas, multiplied and divided by infinity.
And the result is 1 in a Gazillion!
Seriously though the time span has to be irrelevant, the number of the hands played in between is mostly needed.
Very unlucky nonetheless.

You 4 table zoom right?
In that case about .005% give or take, but I can appreciate why you were shocked.

Hope your fortunes turnaround
