I have found a betting system for ****s that counts on two tens being rolled before a seven is rolled. I know that there are no winning betting system, but I was just curious on the odds with this system.

Which is 6 out of 36 so 1/6. Now 1/144 times 1/6 is 1/864 so out of 864 sets of three one will probaly be 10-10-7.
