You imply that none of the players improve on the board, so we'll work with that assumption, and I will also assume that no additional money from other players is in the pot. Player 1 has J♠J♣ and $2000 Player 2 has K♠K♣ and $500 Player 3 has Q♠Q♣ and $2000 Everyone goes all-in before the flop. Because player 2 ...
The biggest mistake I see people make is NOT folding to tight players. And NOT saving a bet on the river just because the pot is so big. Fold the river if you know ur beat. It should be obvious after the Turn betting who is on a draw. If the flush or st8 card comes on the river and a tight player bets- Fold the to the 20$ bet even if the pot is 200$. Because ...
You hand is always the best five card hand you can make, so in this case: Your hand is : Pair of 10's with an Ace, Queen, and 4 Their hand is: Pair of 10's with an Ace, King , and 4 The King beats the Queen, so their hand is best; they win the pot. The 4 is also relevant since it is part of the best 5 card hand you can make. A tie occurs only if your ...
your hand is: pair of Tens + Ace kicker 1 + Queen kicker 2 opponent hand: pair of Tens + Ace kicker 1 + King kicker 2 So your opponent wins. I really don't want to be rude, but please google it next time, I'm sure you would've found the answer.
Player 2 wins. everything else is simply wrong
Player's one rule will work 99% of the time if you only look at the players hands and not the common cards. Player two's variation will work in all cases. The 1% error occurs when the board has a flush and no player card improves the board. In that case comparing the highest card in hand does not determine the winner as all players are playing the board.
My guess is that player 1 just didn't want to lose. So he made up this rule to get what he wants. Again, this is just an educated guess. I've been playing poker for years and I've never heard of such a rule. There are no variations of Texas Hold'em that would allow this, as far as I know. Of course, in a home game, everyone is free to make up their own ...
In my opinion, the accepted answer is not correct. The question is what a player should do if "almost every hand, everyone goes all in right from the beginning", a very hypothetical situation that almost never happens in reality. The answer depends on whether it's a cash game or a tournament. In a cash game, following the strategy described will be ...
If you don't go all-in preflop and there's no A or K on the flop, you have the same dilemma and no more information. Against all but the tightest of players, all-in with KK preflop is a +EV move.
According to Sklansky, in this situation, you should play only with AA, KK, QQ, and AK suited. I might add a couple more; AK off, and AQ suited. The reason is (in limit), AA and KK only cover the "blinds." Your (marginal) wins (under Sklansky) come from AK suited and QQ. Hence, I would extend the hands to AK off, and AQ suited, whose expectation is nearly ...
If in doubt, call with KK. But there is one situation where there is "no doubt" and you should fold. I disagree with others about the TAG (tight aggressive player). This person may have AA, but may also have AK or QQ. Against this "range," you are a favorite but will sometimes lose to AA. Weaker players will have wider ranges leading to greater winning ...
Well, IMHO, your analysis is pretty good. However, you see this kind of play all the time even in big tournaments. And in general, this play from the A8 is usually not a bad one. Whenever you have a super-short stack (really anything under 10 BBs) then they are capable of pushing with just about anything. In fact, there comes a time that it just doesn't ...
Yes this is a split, since you always count the 5 best cards out of board cards + hand cards. you would have a street from board and your other 2 cards don't care if they don't help to upgrade that street. IF you had a king, you would have won here.
