View Full Version : What your opponent has

Is there any data on how to generally predict what your opponents might call with in multiplayer pots?

For example if you have a flush draw on the board most of the books say that if you have 3 callers it is more likely than not that one of them has that flush draw.

Or you have a board like T92 with 3 opponents and you got AK. Whats the chances that flop hit one of them?

Basically an average of what they could have on how to proceed.

Like bad players call with just about any 2 suited. There is a 25% chance that you get 2 suited cards. If 4 bad players limp in whats the chance each of them has 2 suited cards?

And so on? Maybe its asking too much.

I'm afraid you have to know your own game. Not only does it depend on the players, you have to factor in the preflop betting. Someone opening under the gun probably has a better hand someone opening later. Was there raising?

Some guys love pairs, even small ones. Other guys like suited connectors. Some won't play either of those, but will bet on any two high cards. Some guys love to jump into big pots, others prefer to play heads up.
