Has anyone calculated the probabilities of winning/losing heads up matchups of all combinations of two players preflop hands in Texas Hold'em, and if so, can they provide a reference?

I could write the code for working out the probability of these preflop matchups myself, but I found it's not trivial (flushes complicate things) and if someone has already done this I'd rather not re-invent the wheel.

Try this link, Holdem preflop matchups. It's a zip file of all PF matchups in table form I think.

Other than that, use a search engine using the terms "poker" "hand" "matchups", or some other variation with "preflop" and "probability" in there.

You can also use simple on-line preflop odds calculator.

Basically Q2 is a boundary hand. Anything "above" that is profitable on the distance.
