It'll happen 13% of the time (a bit more than 1 in every 6)... these will happen over and over. What we can't let them do is to effect any play that we would make afterwards.

Actually John is right on this one! 13.34% to be exact, so 1 in 6 times ATs will win against AA.
Like John said, it will happen, sometimes at very not-opportune times, but we just have to move on to the next one and not get affected by it!

LOOOOLLLL))))))))))) 1 in 6 times - 17%, 13% - less then 1 in 7 times, but not MORE than 1 in every 6.
"1 in X times" and "Chances 1:X" Its not the same!!!

I think its just an issue with terms the ratio of success is 1:6 which is for every 6 times it does win there will be 1 where it doesn't. So it is 1 in every 7 hands it should win statisically. But I think we all knew what was meant.
