View Full Version : Odds of Flopping Various Hands

07-31-2005, 01:47 AM
OK, I have been trying to figure out the odds of flopping various hands when holding J/images/graemlins/club.gif10/images/graemlins/club.gif. I have found it very difficult to complete this project. However, if I could get help with this, I believe it would greatly improve both my mathematical aptitude and poker skill. The hands I am looking to improve to with the flop are:

Flush and Straight Draws:
8-out flush draw
Four to a flush
Straight flush draw

Top pair
Two pair
Three of a kind
Full house
Four of a kind

Straight
Flush
Straight flush

My biggest problem has been double counting certain outcomes when determining overall odds. That's why I decided to split it up into groups. Inclusion/exclusion only applies within the group. So if a certain flop makes both top pair and a flush draw, it counts in both sections, since they are in different groups. However, if the flop came K/images/graemlins/club.gif9/images/graemlins/club.gif6/images/graemlins/diamond.gif, it would only count under straight flush draws...

Thank you much.
