  • Learning the Odds

    I was listening to an audiobook from the Pokerbrat where he stated that: 'If your holding a small pair then your a 4.5 to 1 underdog to someone who is holding a larger pair' We all know he's talking about cards right so no smart-alec answers please He said that knowing the odds on frequent holdings is something that every poker player should know by heart. Could any member recommend a link to somewhere that provides an overview or guide to statistics like these? Raiser umbup:

      No thanks M. I'll pass on that one. I'm looking for a chart that I can drill into my head for use in Live play especially. Raiser umbup:

                  Thank you M, I'm going to try to commit this information into my extremely limited cranial capacity instead. Wallpaper for the phone is not a bad idea though. Raiser umbup:
