# Charles Anderson-Pelham, 2nd Earl of Yarborough

Lord Yarborough gave his name to a hand of cards dealt in contract bridge that has no card higher than a nine (see Yarborough). The probability of getting a Yarborough is $\frac{\binom{32}{13}}{\binom{52}{13}}$ which is $\frac{347,373,600}{635,013,559,600}$ or about $\frac{1}{1828}$.[1] The Earl offered £1,000 to anyone who achieved a "Yarborough" – on condition they paid him £1 each time they did not succeed![2]
