According to Wikipedia, the probability of being dealt any pocket pair as the starting hand is ~6% (78/1326=0.0588), but yet the probability of facing another player holding a larger pair when holding a pocket pair yourself in pre-flop is significantly high especially when you're playing with 6 or more players. This is strange to me given the likelihood of getting a pocket pair for anyone is only 6%.
The following table from Wikipedia shows the probability that before the flop another player has a larger pocket pair when there are one to nine other players in the hand. Note the figures when you're playing against 6 or more players is ridiculously high. If anyone has a 6% chance of getting a pocket pair as starting hand, when you look at the probabilities in the against 6-9 players columns for comparison it simply doesn't make sense, to me anyway. How is this explained?
ps: will need to x100 to get percentage for the probabilities.
Edit, this is a more accurate table:
