 07-04-2004, 04:12 PM Replies: 14 Views: 3 Posted By switters AQ - too tight? \$20/\$40 at the Horseshoe in Tunica, MS. I've been playing for about an hour, and the only three hands I've had to show down happened to be AA, AA, and a 37o that I flopped trip 3's with in an...
 Forum: Poker Theory 05-23-2003, 06:04 PM Replies: 4 Views: 11 Posted By switters Re: 2 card possibilites there are a total of C[52,2] hands, which is equal to 52*51/2 = 1326 hands -- many of these hands are equivalent, however... you might be dealt one of the 13 possible pairs. there are 6 ways to...
 05-23-2003, 11:56 AM Replies: 5 Views: 3 Posted By switters Re: 10-20 KK, weaktight, or intelligently cautious? when a typical player limp-reraises from EP, don't you usually assume they're holding AA or KK? I would tend to assume that UTG holds AA for top set and is just as scared of the 4...
 05-16-2003, 01:21 PM Replies: 6 Views: 3 Posted By switters Re: Easy Best / Obvious Check - Or Somewhere In-Between?? there are also 6 ways each that your opponent could have KJ or KT, which also make boats here...

 Forum: Probability 05-12-2003, 01:39 PM Replies: 4 Views: 12 Posted By switters Re: Top Pair Flop so, if the flop is xyz, where x > y >= z (x is the TOP card on the board), what are the chances, given n opponents with random cards, that at least one of them holds an x? assuming that you don't...
 Forum: Probability 05-12-2003, 11:22 AM Replies: 1 Views: 16 Posted By switters Re: flush probabilities all in you will make a flush with suited cards when the board has 3, 4, or 5 of your suit. you can compute each of those possibilities and add: C[11,3]C[39,2] / C[50,5] = 5.77059% + C[11,4]C[39,1]...
 Forum: Poker Theory 05-12-2003, 10:28 AM Replies: 54 Views: 16 Posted By switters Re: me too - I\'d take it in a heartbeat naively, they are going to call precisely when they have you beaten/dominated... so the question is, will you make enough by stealing the antes between hands where you are contested to make up for...
 Forum: Probability 05-12-2003, 09:41 AM Replies: 4 Views: 12 Posted By switters Re: Top Pair Flop I'm not quite sure what you're asking - are you trying to figure the probability of *someone* having top pair when n players see the flop? The problem with this sort of question is that it is much...
 Forum: Probability 05-11-2003, 03:43 PM Replies: 7 Views: 10 Posted By switters Re: Odds question. if you start with a pocket pair, then for both cards to play you must make quads in the rank you hold. this will happen C[48,3]/C[50,5] = 17296/2118760 = 0.816% of the time you start with a pocket...
 05-08-2003, 12:28 PM Replies: 3 Views: 3 Posted By switters Re: zwitters: do the numbres make sense? It does make sense, you can break it down like this: 1.31% of the time, you flop a straight. 10.45% of the time, you flop open-ended, and you will complete 31.5% of those (10.45% * 31.5% =...
 05-07-2003, 12:52 PM Replies: 3 Views: 3 Posted By switters Re: An intersting question okay -- i'll try not to botch the math this time... first, you need to figure all of the ways you make a str8 with those two hands: JT: 789, 89Q, 9QK, QKA QJ: 89T, 9TK, TKA for each of...
 05-06-2003, 06:40 PM Replies: 10 Views: 3 Posted By switters ERROR CORRECTION turns out I was computing the choose function wrong... correcting the math from the previous post: quads : 2 ways boats : 10's full ((3 C 2) * 3 = 9) ways + J's full ((3 C 2) * 3 = 9) ways = 18...
 05-06-2003, 06:31 PM Replies: 10 Views: 3 Posted By switters sorry, pudley... Pudley -- it turns out that you were right -- we DO need to multiply them by three... the reason is: I was computing the choose function wrong... I computed (11 choose 2) as 11 * 10, when it...
 05-06-2003, 06:24 PM Replies: 10 Views: 3 Posted By switters ERROR CORRECTION oops. the math from the previous posts was off - in most cases by a factor of three. The process I used was sound, but I was miscomputing the choose function throughout. apologies for the...
 Forum: Probability 05-06-2003, 06:03 PM Replies: 17 Views: 11 Posted By switters Re: minor error correction Thanks! you're absolutely right -- I didn't have a calculator with choose[] handy, and I was accidentaly computing the permutation function ((50! / (50-3)!) = 50 * 49 * 48) rather than the choose...

You are getting 7.25-1 on your 6 outer and you KNOW you'll pick up 2 more BBs minimum on the river if you hit. All your outs should be clean as neither of these two...
