(In reply to re(4): Interesting Idea:
Charlie: "That was 'a given set', i.e., one given set. With 26 sets, as mentioned it's 1 in 36."
Oh, right, that's what you wrote. I read it too quickly. Still, to get a hit in 26 tries, when the actual odds are 1/36, is still beating the odds, if not spectacularly. I am surprised that no one else has attempted to give a solution to this 3-rated puzzle yet.
