A Card Draw Experiment is a Random Experiment that involves Cards with Symbols composed of the permutation of {A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,J,Q,K} and {H,D,S,C} {i.e. (A,H),(A,D),...(K,C)} that are Randomly drawn (from a Card Deck), and whose Random Experiment Outcome is the 2-Tuple symbol on the drawn card.

**AKA:**Card Draw.**Context:**- It can involve:
- It can be associated with a Card Draw Trial.
- It can involve additional Cards, e.g. 'Joker Card'.

**Example(s):**- Select a single card from a single Card Deck:
- Example Outcome: (4,Diamond)
- Sample Space = 13x4 = 52 Outcomes.
- Event Space = 2
^{52}=4,503,599,627,370,496 Events.

- Select two cards from a single Card Deck stack:
- Example Outcome: {(4,Diamond), (A,Heart)}
- Sample Space = ChoseNoR(2,52) = 1,326 Outcomes (52!/50!/2!)
- Event Space = {{},{(AH,2D)},{(JH,JD)} … {(2,S),(3,D)} … } with 2
^{1326}Events.

- Select five cards from a Two Card Deck stack.

- Select a single card from a single Card Deck:
**Counter-Example(s):**- a Sequential Random Experiment.
- Toss a coin two consecutive times, roll a dice two times, and draw one card from a card deck.

- a Sequential Random Experiment.

- For example, the number of five-card hands possible from a standard fifty-two card deck is:
- {52 \choose 5} = \frac{n!}{k!(n-k)!} = \frac{52!}{5!(52-5)!} = \frac{52!}{5!47!} = 2,598,960.
