      That worked out very nicely Bill. If you are anything like me, once those chips are in the middle I'm never quite sure which players are in which pot, so it comes as a nice surprise when they shove the big pot back in my direction.

      As an aside, with 4 pocket pairs representing almost a third of the ranks in the pack, and five cards to come, you almost expect one of them to hit the set. Anybody know the odds here?

      Nice hand Bill - good luck

        Nice result Bill but I gotta ask...why the Hell are you open-limping KK from UTG? Or anywhere for that matter? Come on man,you know better than that.

          It's the 10th anniversary freeroll, and most of the players at this table fold whenever I make a substantial bet early.

          Whenever I limped, I always got called and quite often raised.

          I was hoping that someone or two would raise so I could re-raise.

              That looks high. I was after the odds of any one of the four players hitting one of their two outs for a set.

              ie any of the 8 cards in the pack that would complete a set coming by the river.

              I don't really do maths but isn't that at least 8 of either 44 or 40 (52 - 8 in hole pairs - 4 on board) or about 1 in 5?

                It's 20:1 against no one hitting a set. So 95% of the time at least 1 of them hits a set.

                      Im a little lost here. If there are 8 cards in a deck of 44 pre flop,41,40, then dont they each have a roughly 1 in 5 shot at each street to make a set?

                        with 8 cards out, there are 44 available for the first card (2 can hit a given person's pkt pair). That gives 22-1 odds on the first card that they get a set. If they don't get it there, then it's lowered to 43 cards (1 in 21.5). For the 3rd card, it's 2 of 42 (21 to 1)... for the 4th it's 2 of 41 (1 in 20.5).. for river, it's 2 of 40 (20 to 1).

                          Do the odds not change when 4 people have a 20(give or take) percent chance? I guess im asking is are the odds when youre playing supposed to be calculated individually or for the table as whole? I mean if you are there you have a 20 percent chance of someone else getting the set three times?

                            with 3 opps out there with sets, it's really 3 in ?? for each street if you look at it for the whole table.

                            ex: on river only, it's 1 in 20... so with 3 opps trying for it, it's 3 in 20 that one of them hits.
