When you bet and you get raised, is there a situation where it is justified to just call instead of raising or folding? In general I would say no. Lets think about this for each scenario. Passive Fish A passive fishy player re-raises you on the flop, you should fold. Passive fish are calling stations, not raisers. When they raise it is because they a ...

p is 0.0000046642 Here are two different ways to arrive at that result... If you have XY, there is one way to make "quad X" and C(3,2) ways to make "set Y". If you have XY, there is also one way to make "quad Y" and C(3,2) ways to make "set X". C(3,2) is 3, so starting from XY, there are 6 possibilities to make what you called the "big full house" (very ...

Short answer: Play only premium hands (QQ+, AK). Longer answer: The more hands the average player on a table plays, the less hands you should play (except you play way better than your opponents and can even outplay them with worse hands). But it also depends on certain other facts, such as the number of players that sit on your table (More players means ...

It depends on the context... If you are playing a freeroll online for example, obviously the (let's say) 20 first hands there will be a lot of all-in, because people simply don't want to waste their time winning 2€ for 4 hours of tournament. So if you are the kind of people that want to play a regular tournament, just wait for this frenzy to end by folding ...

• The minimum legal raise is equal to the previous raise amount. • If the previous all-in raise amount was less than the minimum raise, then the minimum raise is equal to the previous minimum raise. • If a player goes all-in for less than the minimum legal raise after the open raiser, and is called by at least another player, the open raiser will only be ...

Your question is far too broad. There are many different variants of NLHE. Cash, multi-table tournaments that are either scheduled or sit'n'go style, heads-up, 6-max, 8-max, 9-max, 10-max, 11-max, live play, online play, etc. etc. etc. On top of that, NLHE is a game complex enough that it's currently unsolvable. There are too many possibilities and 3-player ...

I agree with @david Hirst answer and reasoning. At the end, it always depends on how well you know the opponent player. You didn't mention in your question what sort of a game it was. Is it a tournament or a cash table. What about stakes? Are you the chip leader or the caller is the chip leader , or neither? These are important considerations too. Finally, ...

Push along with premium hands. If you know you will be ahead, just push it in. I would do this all day if I could. This is simple math. Even if you lose 10 times in a row, in the long run, it will be EV+. EV+ basically means you would earn money out of it :).

There are (52 choose 7) = 133784560 total possible hands in 7 card poker. Of these, 12 * 4 * 13 are a "Big Full House." To see why, consider the 12 seven-card hands with four aces and three of a kind, disregarding suit: AAAA222 AAAA666 AAAA101010 AAAA333 AAAA777 AAAAJJJ AAAA444 AAAA888 AAAAQQQ AAAA555 AAAA999 AAAAKKK For each of these 12 hands, ...

That suggests to me that you didn't have enough money to win the whole pot so there was a sidepot. You won the main pot with the best hand, but because the other player had more chips invested then you could afford. He won the remainder of the chips. I would suggest you go and google side pots. Or look at the following question on this site: How are side ...

I assume the value n is reasonable for a poker table (n = [2, 10]). In this case, it won't be relevant for the result. You start with 52 cards. You give the first player a card. The probability that the second card you give him has the same rank so that he'll get a pocket pair is: 3 / 51 (the 3 cards of the same rank that remained out of the remaining ...

I would call if I thought my opponent had made a straight OR a flush, but not a straight flush. Many loose opponents will call pre-flop with two suited cards, or two straight cards, not necessarily two "straight flush" cards. In this case, I am behind, but my two pair gives me a re-draw to a full house. I may call on the flop and wait till the expensive ...
