Odds of rolling seven once (2 dice) is 1:6, twice in a row, odds are 1:36. The reason is- the first die can be any number, but the second die must be a particular number. For example, if the first die is 6, then the second die has to be 1 to make 7. When an event occurs twice, and the two events are unrelated, then you can multiply the odds together= 1/6 * 1/6 = 1/36.

like 5 out of a billion

1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36

If you put the one card back in before trying it the second time, then the odds are slightly worse; otherwise, the odds are the same - it does not matter if you pull two cards at once or one card twice, subject to the noted limitation.

5% for a good player. The chances of sinking the 8 on the break are different based on the size of the table and the skill of the player. If you get a lot of ball action, the ratio of pocket opening space to rail space is greater on a 7 foot table than an 8, and an 8 is better than a 9. However, most 8 ball on the break shots are performed without the 8 ball going off any rails, and it goes in a side pocket. To increase your chances, the cue ball must be placed nearly next to the head string and the rail. The contact point is a matter of preference, but the most recommended for the shot is slight follow.
