In order for two people flopping a straight flush we need: a connected three straight flop, all cards having the same suit. No cards can be lower than a three or higher than a queen. player 1 holding two connected cards of that same suit making the higher or the lower straight. player 2 holding two connected cards of that same suit making the last ...

Start with flopping a straight flush. The odds are 1 / 64974. The only way to flop the idiot end is: xx345 xx456 xx567 xx678 xx789 xx89T xx9TJ xxTJQ Then all 4 suits. So there are 32 possible idiot end of a straight flush. Chance of you have the idiot end is: 32/combin(52;2) = 32/1326 = 2.4133% = 1 / 41.4375 There is only 1 flop that gives you ...

This is quite difficult to answer without making some assumptions. You could just calculate the chances of your opponent having a hand with a maximum of one heart based on the known and unknown cards, which comes to about 95%*. However, this is a flawed approach because it assumes that your opponent is equally likely to get to the river with any two cards ...

On the turn there are 46 unknown cards (to you). There is only one ace and 7 other cards of the suite. There are combin(46, 2) possible hands. So the odds are 0.00676 = 1/148. But they are (likely) only making that move with a flush on an unpaired board. They could think a smaller flush is good. There are 21 flushes you beat but is someone going to play ...

More likely you need glasses. Looks to me that you actually had TJ of DIAMONDS. There is only one ten of hearts in each deck, so it wasn't both in your hand and on the board. You'd be surprised, I estimate this actually happens to everybody about once a year if you play regularly. I've seen it hundred of times personally.

Pre not sure what a 3 bet to 6 bb accomplishes. It has basically no fold equity. You would need to 3 bet to 10 bb. A6s is a good but not premium hand that wants to see a flop from middle to late position. It is not good enough to want to build a pot. OK with Flop and turn bets. On the river what hand do you think is going to call a shove. Based on his ...

I think you're playing Texas Hold'em. Player 1 wins the game. A straight in combination with a flush with different cards is the best hand a flush. The hand only looks at the first 5 best cards or best combination with maximal 5 cards. The rest of the cards don't count. In your situation is this: Player 1: 4♥5♥6♥7♥8♥ &...

tl;dr: it depends on a few things but the chances of opponent having a better flush is somewhere in the 43% area if we assume villain opens from EP and its HU between you and villain. He'll also have you beat with a full house or quads ~6.7% of the time. He has a worse flush than you about 20% of the time. I can't give you a clear cut answer for your exact ...

Depending on what level of play this is... This can be brilliant or total fish. If you are playing with normal people, this is pretty bad; if you are playing with God-like pros, this is a decent line (due to the fact that it goes completely against logic and can make people call/fold incorrectly) Min-Reraising with A6s? Why? You are increasing the pot with ...

I believe the answer currently posted is incorrect. In the situation posed: If you bet x, and 1 person calls, then you need over 50% odds for a worthwhile bet. If you bet x, and 2 people call, then you need over 33% odds for a worthwhile bet. Since catching a flush in the defined situation has about a 35% chance, then you need 2 people to call for the bet ...

Player 1 wins this pot because player 1 has the best 5 card hand. player 1 best 5 card hand: 3 5 6 T Q (all clubs) player 2 best 5 card hand: 2 3 5 T Q (all clubs)

Using combination Having: combin(10,2) / combin(45,2) = 0.0454545455 = 1/22 Not having: 1 - 1/22 = 21 / 22 = 0.9545454545

I just ran the numbers and thought it was worth posting Using Combination flops combin(50, 3) = 19600 3 flush combin(11, 3) = 165 / 19600 = 0.0084183673 = 0.84% = 1/119 2 flush combin(11, 2) = 55 other cards = 39 55 * 39 / 19600 = 0.1094387755 = 11% = 1 / 9 flush or 4 flush = 0.0084183673 + 0.1094387755 = 0.1178571429 = 12% = 1 / 8.5 4 flush hit ...
