probability of cards with 2 players

Hi there,
I have this problem:

In a card game with two players (I and II) used only the 16 picture cards, each player gets 4 cards for each
"distribute" <- I do not know if this is the right word in in English.

Can anyone help ?

We have two player each dealt four of the 16 "picture cards" for a hand. I assume Jack through Ace of each suit.

For what event are you asked to compute the probability?

Yes it is true that it's Jack to Ace of each suit.
I want to calculate the probability that participant 1 is assigned at least 3 red cards at the distribution.
