View Full Version : My Hand VS a Range of Hands

12-02-2004, 01:19 PM
Hello All,

Player A is an ultratight player known to stay (not reraise) in a raised pot with AKx, AQx, AJx, QQ, JJ, 10 10. Let's assume since he didn't reraise he has no AA or KK.

What are my odds with 2 2 against these range of hands and how do I represent this in a formula where x = my hand and a, b, c represent my opponents hands?

Could it be as simple as taking my hand vs each possible opponent hand and getting the average?

You have to enumerate over all the possiblities and then take a weighted average. This is essentially impossible to do by hand. It's solved using a computer, but luckily the program is already written and you can download it for free.

When I run this range of hands in Poker Calculator (this is similar to Pokerstove), I get 42% equity for 22. In a 100,000 hand Monte Carlo simulation, it wins 42,051, draws 592, and loses 57,357.
