### Abstract

Starting from a textbook result, the nearest-neighbor distribution of particles in an ideal gas, we develop estimates for the probability with which quarks q in a mixed q, q gas are more strongly attracted to the nearest q, potentially forming a diquark, than to the nearest q. Generic probabilities lie in the range of tens of percent, with values in the several percent range even under extreme assumptions favoring qq over qq attraction.
