View Full Version : Percent of total hands

11-29-2004, 11:06 PM
So I was going through a long stretch of getting flushed out and I started thinking that I haven't been seeing my fair share of flushes and straights lately.

Obviously that's just complaining, but then I got to thinking if that might be one more tool I can use to judge my play, or at least to weight it and to get back in the right mindset.

What I'm curious about is what the 'proper' percentage of straights, flushes, trips, two pair, pair, and high card hands is in the long run. Does anyone have any numbers or a good starting point?

For Hold'em or 7-card stud, you can go by the probabilities at this web page. (http://wizardofodds.com/games/pokerodd.html) Note that for Hold'em, these numbers include the times the specified hand is on the board. Also, since real players don't play random cards to the end, I wouldn't necessarily expect these numbers to agree with observations from actual play.
