comment What are the odds of drawing a given card after discarding my initial hand?
Thanks for the answer. I didn't mean a discard, though, but a new draw from a reshuffled deck. Basically, you have twice a chance of 39.95% to get one... how do you add these odds to a total chance in two draws?

@Steven, thanks for clearing that up. In that case, my question remains: What are the combined odds of of drawing two hands of 7 out of 60, where only one of them has to hit at least 1 of the 4 cards. Does it not give you higher odds if you can draw another 7 if the first 7 didn't leave you with one of the 4 cards you want? How do you "add" those precentages?

Yes Stephen, 4 chances out of 60. What I'm wondering is: what are the combined odds of drawing two hands of 7 out of 60, where only one of them has to hit at least 1 of the 4 cards. Does it not give you higher odds if you can draw another 7 if the first 7 didn't leave you with one of the 4 cards you want? How do you "add" those precentages?

What I meant is: what are the odds that I end up with one of those cards if I redraw another 7 if it wasn't in the first sample. Does it not increase the odds overall if you have two chances of getting it in those 7 cards drawn?

Thanks for the info Stephen. @user1873, I'm not sure how a mulligan works... are those 7 cards removed altogether? Or do you reshuffle and draw a fresh 7 cards?
