I do, it is the same. For example, let's say both have 5 cards total. How does that change compared say when they both have 4 total?

The cards are first shuffled and then split. Although, I fail to see how that changes the outcome?

Everyone must play the same suit and highest card loses.

comment What's the proper way to calculate probability for a card game?
The cards are dealt from a shuffled 24 card deck, with 3 suits. Each player has exactly 8 cards, but in various suit. The problem I gave above only considers a single suit. I want to calculate probability for lowest card in each suit and then play the suit where the player has the most chance of surviving. This means that other two players might have 0-3 cards each. AI only knows that they have 3 cards total, because from other 5 cards, 4 have already been played and the remaining one is in AI's hand.

This seems to contradict what Muphrid wrote, so I'm now back at start with two answers to a dilemma and still not being sure which one is correct. ;)

No, cards are dealt from a deck of 32 cards, divided into 4 suits. When AI needs to play, it needs to select a suit. I want to calculate probability for each suit and pick the card from the suit where AI stands the greatest chance of survival.

I know this might look odd, but those are actually cards of the same suit, and players have to follow suit. Of course, players have cards from other suits but that's irrelevant to the calculation.

The cards are dealt randomly. AI does not know how many cards each of them have, only that they have 3 cards together. Each of the opponents might have 0,1,2 or 3 cards. Overall probability needs to be calculated taking in account all the possible combinations.
