The ideal max number at a regular-size table is 9 players and a dealer. 10 is also not uncommon. Some larger tournaments will occasionally place 11 at a table in the early stages until the field is narrowed a little. Any more than that and you'll have a game that is super tight, both in terms of the poker and the space available to you. The theoretical max ...

Based on your calculations... If you hold 4 cards (A to 4), you will ALWAYS make a pair? Estimate with 3/50 * 5 instead of the annoyingly similar fractions: (3/50 * 5) * 4 = 60/50 !? ===---=== The reason you won't get the right answer this way even though I can see the logic in your math is because of "double counting". You think the chance of hitting the ...

There's a couple of things that come into play here: 1 - I think you need to clarify the action. Did you raise or did you go all-in? There is a huge difference between those two actions, the latter makes your hand seem stronger than the former move. Your post says you just raised - what was the action after that? 2 - you have to look at it from his ...

if I hold two different cards, what's the probability I get a pair at river? Probabilities computation can quickly get very complicated and you need to be very precise in what you want to exactly compute. What if the board comes with a pair in it? Do you consider that "getting a pair at river" or do you only want to know the probability of making a ...

The floorman will rule in the spirit of the game. Most of the time, that should mean that if a verbal action was in turn, and understood, then it is binding. If it is ambiguous, or denotes an action not possible, clarification may be called for. The precise words don't matter. I once ruled that the words "Back atcha" constituted a re-raise, because in the ...

Your question has to do with an important poker concept: board texture. You must always consider what your hand is vis-a-vis according to the other cards on the board and how that board can improve. Overall, you should recognize that the more cards your opponent sees, the more value your hand loses - don't let them see more card than they need to. In the ...

You say you only called the bet and had one opponent, which means the opponent had the big blind position and checked to see the flop. This means he could have any two cards and it would be impossible to put him on any range. If you were the SB, the pot was only 24 on the flop (if there was no ante). This means you made a decent pot sized bet with your ...

I would love the idea of a "group chip". A customized chip with your group logo or something. You know, you carry this chip easily with you meaning you belong to this group.

Group logo wear, t-shirts or hats. Cool stuff at the table.

Your post lacks information to answer well.we don't know about positions and we don't know about your player (is he loose (seem to play every single hand), is he tight (plays only very strong hands)) and the image you have at the table. First A4os is not really a hand you should consider playing usually. With such a board and other player who seemed to show ...

The short answer is yes, always. Most poker rooms and rule books state plainly that you must table your cards face up to have any claim to a pot. Tabling your cards means placing them face up on the table, so that all players can see them. If you say my hand is the board and muck your cards your hand is dead and you will have no claim on the pot. related ...

The concept of outs is to count the number of cards left on the deck (outs) that will improve your current hold cards (together with board) to a hand that will beat other hands. For example consider you have the hand A♥Q♥ The board comes 7♥3♠9♥ This case is one of the most typical for the outs concept. You need one ...

I think your call wasn't bad, and raising the turn might have been ok too. I think folding would have been worst of all. First, lots of people at this level will just call and bet things without thinking a lot about it. When he called your flop bet he could have had: Flopped set Flopped straight Two pair One pair (overpair or with one card on the board) ...

I promised to post a picture of the gift I got my group. I've attached it to this answer. Poker Church is the name of our group and it's an aluminum bottle that is laser etched, so it looks pretty classy! :) The lighting in the pic makes it look more pink than it is - the bottle is a really nice shade of red.

You may very well be wasting your time with this wiki project. I will tell what I found out about poker rooms, and poker players based on my experience doing something pretty much like what your attempting. You said you were tired of relying on message boards and directories, this is a hint that there are problems keeping directories up to date. Some of ...

Alright so here is a very good example that I bet most of you would miss lets say this is the scenario. there are two people left in the hand (person L and person X) Person L has a K and a 5 Person X has pocket Q's The board is A,A,A,A,2 Now most people would say obviously person X wins right? S/He has the four of a kind aces plus his pocket queens; ...

To my mind, ace rag is a questionable play - ace rag off suit doubly so. N.B. this assumes full ring or such like. The range of hands you should play increases as you go from full ring to heads up. Once you're in the hand and you hit aces on the flop, I can see why you played on. I don't think you played badly from here but your choice to play the hand is ...

I vote call. Villain did not raise on the flop or turn indicating that he was not likely holding top pair. My take on this particular villain is that the most likely thing he was doing was representing a ten in his hand because he believes the hero to be a very tight player and likely to fold a winning hand here. The fact that there was the blown flush ...
