I can be playing alone at the table, or with any number of people.

For example, walking up to a table with 4 players, I am talking about seeing the 6s on the felt and looking at the card on the felt that the dealer set down (or is about to set down if she is dealing the current round) that follows each of those 6s and predicting it will be an Ace. We know that in the long run, the math tell us that we have a 1/13 chance of seeing an Ace after each 6 (without regard for card composition that has already been dealt). I am hoping to be able to predict an Ace with slightly greater than a 1/13 likelihood.

Hope this clarifies. A simpler way to look at it would be to thumb through 2 decks with the cards not face up (like a double deck shoe waiting to be dealt). First card is a 3, next card is a 4, next card is a 6, hopefully next card is an Ace, next card is a Q, next card is a 3, next card is a 6, hopefully next card is an Ace, next card is a 9, next card is a K, next card is a Q, etc. Hope I didn't make it more confusing just now.

Please answer both questions about 6s and 10s.
