Poker Quiz

i recently read a very interesting article from cardplayer magazine.

If you and i each get to choose one hold'em hand among 4s-4c, Jh-10h, or As-Kc to be all-in with before the flop, i will let you choose first every time, and i will be the one with the advantage every single time!

Now, it is common knowledge that any pair beats two over cards by a few perecentage points right? so if you choose the pocket fours, you would be ahead every time right? that's what you think my friend.

AND, you would be surprised at which hand wins pre-flop if the three hands were to go all in against each other!

What do you think? which hand would you pick pre-flop? which one do you think is ahead?

Oh one more tidbit of information, in hold'em, ALL straights will either have a 10 or a 5, but there is ONE straight that you cant make when you hold 10-5, the nine-high straight.

till next time..

you know what i'd pick! :)

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
