Where is that lady hiding? Since the Morris VFW Queen of Hearts game is down to its last three numbers, the chances for whomever gets their ticket pulled choosing the queen is pretty good (1 out of 3 in the first round, 1 out of 2 if it goes to Round 2). But what are the chances that the Queen of Hearts has not been selected by this point, 51 cards in? We asked a mathematics professor at Joliet Junior College, Dr. Heidi Lyne about the statistical probability.

A drawing is held every Monday at 6 p.m. Ticket sales begin at noon every day and end at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays and at 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Tickets are six for $5 and you can purchase as many tickets as you want.You must be at least 18 years old to play and you do not have to be present to win. You cannot take tickets out of the building. The VFW accepts only cash for tickets.
Eric Ginnard - email@example.comCaptionThe queen of hearts was not drawn. Instead, it was the 10 of clubs. Of course this means the game will continue to draw participants for next week's drawing. Pat Boyk, 65, has never seen anything like the crowd that's been gathering to participate in the Queen of Hearts game the last few weeks. "This is crazy," Boyk said. "This is an awful lot of people.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
