No. The player with KQ would win the whole pot. The winner of the pot is the player who can make the best 5-card hand from the 7 possible cards -- 5 board cards plus their two hole cards. Player 1 has KQ, so his 7 cards are KKKQ642. Ignoring suits, the best possible hand here is KKKQ6, or trip kings with a queen kicker. Player 2 has K9, so his 7 cards ...

You're unclear when you say player 2 "doesn't call". Do you mean that he actually made some motion or verbal indication of intent to fold? If so, then the moment that happened, the hand is over and player 1 became the owner of the pot. What happens after that is irrelevant. If that's not the case, and player 2 still has cards in his hand and has not acted, ...

In fact this seems to be a very variable rule. Asking in a casino nearby about the house rule regarding this issue they said that they changed the ruling in february. Before that, you had to show your hand on showdown even if all other players had mucked. After that, they changed it that you don't have to show.

The only way to get it out of the PT client is through their export command. It gives you a CSV file which you should be able to import to excel and play with the data, make graphs, whatever. I don't know of any programs that are specifically made for PT but it's just a pgSQL database running on your system which makes it actually easier than a program ...

As far as the math for determining this, it gets very involved and complicated. The basic formula is the same though, the cards you can hit to win / the total remaining cards unseen. Now I'm sure the problem your having in the situation you posted is that you don't know the other players hole cards. That throws a wrench in the works. Since you don't ...

A VP$IP (voluntarily put $ into pot) of 75%-85% is not just big, it's gravy. You're not just playing loose, you're playing in maniac status, just spewing money and i guess in very marginal situations due to frequency of plays. The VPIP is just the frequency of raising and calling preflop. I don't know if you're calling more than raising but calling too ...

Without the guy being forced to make a raise of much more then he thought, this hand is simple, I am going to raise the all in just to go head up. V1 is not all that short stacked, just short enough to start pushing with some aces or pairs when he can get it in first. His M is about ten, so he is not entirely desperate yet. Having another player in makes ...

Yes. And be careful, a friend lost a large pot at a casino this way. He held A9 against KK all in, and paired his ace on the river. The opponent was trash talking, and in the heat of the moment my friend mucked his 9 (since it wasn't needed to make his hand), tabling just the Ace to demonstrate his win. But the opponent objected, and the floor ...

I once spent an afternoon analyzing 7-2 with Poker Probe (An old program by Mike Caro). I was curious if there was any situation that justified making a call with 2-7. PP was a pretty simple program, you could run a hand against a configurable hand, or a number of random hands. It for example could tell you how often a particular hand would hold up against a ...

It's always nice to get a hard-to-detect draw (unless you occasionally land against a miracle full house along the way; the complete/check action often leads to this), but players often overrate the open ended straight draw (OESD). That is, an OESD is overrated and should played with caution; it's true that you have around 32-35% equity but this is only if ...

In Texas Hold'em, the hand order goes (Lowest to Highest): No Pair (high card) -> 1 Pair -> 2 Pair -> 3 of a Kind -> Straight -> Flush -> Full House -> 4 of a Kind -> Straight Flush -> Royal Flush. Now if any hand is in a category that is higher than another, that hand wins, no matter what the value of the cards are (example: 22245 beats AAKKQ). In the ...

(1) Poker hands have exactly five cards, so you haven't actually described their hands correctly. The first player has something like QQK75, and the second player has something like AAQ92. (2) If both 5-card hands contain one pair and no other valuable combination, the higher pair wins, in this case, the aces. Only if both hands have the same pair do you ...

As others have mentioned, the reason the rule exists is to prevent collusion. However, there are legitimate times in both cash games and tournaments when it makes sense to check the nuts on the river, even when last to act, and in my opinion should not be penalized: In a cash game, it is not uncommon for friends to "check it down" once they are heads up. ...

You keep iterating but only taking the 5 best cards into account (which means up to 3 kickers in your example wit the pair). So in your example Frank wins while if they would hold A8 and A7 on a 22QJ3 board (no flush), it would be a split (both play a pair of deuces with AQJ as kickers).

Tie is neither win nor loss. Therefore, you should have a counter for ties the same way you have a counter for wins. In any case a round with a tie should be removed from your simulation.
