What is the probability of having the following event occur on the very next try:

Event 1:
Three coins are thrown at once, six consecutive times.

1st toss - HHT
2nd toss -TTH
3rd toss - HHT
4th toss - TTT
5th toss- TTH
6th toss- TTH

Event 2: You follow the same procedure and get the EXACT same result.

What are the odds/probability for Event 1 to repeat itself on the very next try?

Any reply would be greatly appreciated.......
