Knowing whether to continue after calculating outs percentage

So just to offer you a small bit of clarity on outs, you absolutely do not have a 35% chance of winning the hand! You have a 35% chance of improving your hand. This is an important distinction to ...

Same low with different hole cards - who wins?

It's a tie. Win/loss is always dependent on 5 cards. The only times differences in hand cards matter is when determining who gets the extra chip(s) in a split pot. (Though some casinos go by position ...

Good fold or losing play? AK on AK988

Wow, that was a great to superstar fold. As it turns out you made the right play. When I am playing well I would have a hard time convincing myself to believe what I see and make that fold, when I am ...

Small Stakes NLH 1-2 $300 Cap - What did villain have?

I suspect he had KH-QX or KH-JX or KH-TX. I don't think it makes much sense for him to raise preflop with 3H 4H or 5H 6H. And, he would play KH-8X or less raising preflop. And, since he didn't win ...

Called me with nothing

Generally A9 wants to check a flop like 844 rainbow, because you are likely ahead of you opponent's range, but you don't want o play a massive pot. If you bet you can get bluff raised easily and you ...

Why did I lose with my pair of fives?

You've been counterfeited on the river. Villain's best hand is: Q♥ Q♠ 6♥ 6♣ J⋄ (two pair, Queens and Sixes, Jack kicker) Your best hand is: Q♥ Q♠ 6&...

When is a hand considered over

Under the rules, a player who properly shows his hand is entitled to the pot if the hand wins, regardless of his actions or those of others. This is the "cards speak" rule. Also, the dealer and other ...

Observing the table

You mention classifying people into groups such as TAG, LAG, and calling station and that's a reasonable start. It will mostly help with pre-flop decisions and with narrowing down the possible range ...

Hands when playing Omaha

The answer is yes. And although you didnt ask here is some side info : Kickers do not matter with Quads in Omaha. When you hold quads you can only loose to a straight / royal flush or higher quads. ...

When is a hand considered over

If the board has already been mixed with the burn cards (which I presume are the "3 down cards" you refer to), it seems unlikely that a floor would rule to turn all 8 cards back up and try to ...

Just a few observations/contemplations of the hand: I get dealt QTo - I'm assuming you're out of position here. What position were you in? My opponent raised to 0.8, I call - If you're intending ...

Small Stakes NLH 1-2 $300 Cap - What did villain have?

I agree with you, I think a high heart is most likely. Kh-x maybe even Qh-x, depending on how maniacal he is he could have something like 3h4h, 3h5h, or 4h5h, as well, although these are not the type ...

What is your read about this hand?

I think it was a mistake for you to check the flop. His pre-flop raise might well be something like AK/AQ, but it might also be QQ, KK, etc. If you check an A-high flop, he has to bet his QQ, and you ...

Good fold or losing play? AK on AK988

There aren't many hands your opponent would bluff on that spot except perhaps for some missed straight draw and what candidates for a value-bet could you possibly be beating? Not many either! Your ...

I wanted to know, if I can beat the dealers hand in poker?

Nice edit, now it is much more clear and easier to compare :) Unfortunately, you would lose all of these hands since the dealer has a pair of queens, and neither of your hands can beat that. If you ...

How to narrow down ranges postflop?

An example: When there's an A on the flop. It's then much less likely that someone will have the flush involving that A, because they would have folded any weaker such flush draws. So then you'd ...

What should I do when I have AKo UTG against a quite loose player and this happens

I think your re-raise was unnecessary. Villain is showing strength, especially for someone you think is passive, and you are out of position. On the flop, you definitely should check most of the time. ...

Small Stakes NLH 1-2 $300 Cap - What did villain have?

My first thought is, he misread his hand. There is no hand which V can correctly call your turn push that doesn't win on the river. if V had lower flush (3-6h), to me this is a standard flop jam ...

Who wins Higher flush or Straight + Flush

K♠️ Q♠️ T♠️ 8♠️ 4♠️ > Q♠️ T♠️ 8♠️ 6♠️ 4♠️ The higher flush wins. This is because the second hand is qualified as just a flush. You need a Straight and flush in the same 5 cards for it to be ...

I think you're on the right track, as in thinking about the right questions. You'll feel better about your uncertainty if you can embrace the reality that poker often does not have clear-cut right/...
