According to online calculators:

A♥K♦ (57.91%) vs 7♣8♣ (41.71%)

A♥K♦ (59.42%) vs 8♣9♣ (40.19%)

A♥K♦ (58.59%) vs 9♣T♣ (41.00%)

Why is 8♣9♣ worse odds than the other 2?

I assume it has something to do with potentially dealing TJQ?

Yes it is steals

78
9TJQ steals

89
TJQ steals

9T
JQ steals and they need a T you have covered

When it need less cards to fill in the steal the steal is more common

9T is better than 89 as the T blocks the ace high straight

I am surprised 78 is better than 9T

  • why is 78 better than 89? – ricka Jul 15 '17 at 1:38
  • @ricka Answered - it need less cards to fill in. – paparazzo Jul 15 '17 at 1:51
  • 9T needs even less cards to fill in than 89, yet it is worse... I am confused. – ricka Jul 15 '17 at 1:58
  • @ricka I stated clearly T is a block – paparazzo Jul 15 '17 at 3:58
  • 78 is better than 9T because some of the times where 9T hits a pair of Ts, it's no good because of the straight. – Bogdan Alexandru Jul 18 '17 at 10:12

    Why did you edit this? You did nothing but put a space behind 87s? – lessharm Jul 17 '17 at 12:09
