View Full Version : Closest holdem matchup

08-07-2003, 04:58 PM
Just from curiousity, I was looking for the closest (to a coin flip) holdem matchup. I found AsQs vs. 2h2d on a board of Kh Ts Th which gives 491 wins for AQ, 490 for 22, and 9 chops. Anyway to be exactly even in expectation postflop for non-identical hands (obviously AA vs AA is a chop on rainbow flops)? What is the closest matchup after the turn? Preflop?

Any board with quads and you both have the same kicker is exactly even.

OK, any ones with some non-chopped pots?

I heard (though haven't checked with twodimes yet) that the closest preflop 50-50 matchup is AT vs 33. Obviously, the suits would have to be coordinated properly to get it close to 50%.

Here's the numbers from twodimes.net for ATs vs 33 (with one of the 3s being the same suit as the ATs).

What are you trying to prove with this 'research'?
