In poker, how many 5-card hands are three-of-a-kind?  I keep getting the wrong answer.

In poker, how many 5-card hands are three-of-a-kind?   

 

There are 13 card values, ace through king.  There are four of each of those values. 

So it seems obvious, if simplistic, that the possibility is 13 different 3-of-a-kind hands. 

 

Edited to add:   This assumes that we aren't using any wild cards e.g., Jokers.
