Insightful Probability To Think About Before You Decide
Let’s use a simple example of A-A vs K-K. Now, pocket aces are definitely the favourite – 81% actually. But over the course of thousands of hands and hours upon hours of play you face this situation or situations like these repeatedly, over and over. Check this out:
- The first time you play AA vs KK your probability of winning is 81.26%
- The second time you play AA vs KK your probability of winning both times is 66.02%
- The third time you play AA vs KK your probability of winning all three times is 53.65%
And it continues on
- AA vs KK the 4th time: 43.59%
- AA vs KK the 5th time: 35.42%
- AA vs KK the 6th time: 28.78%
- AA vs KK the 7th time: 23.39%
- AA vs KK the 8th time: 19.00%
- AA vs KK the 9th time: 15.44%
Until the tenth time you play AA vs KK your probability of winning all ten times is just a mere 12.55%
So what happens? You’ve been playing online for hours, seen many great hands and suddenly land these amazing pocket aces. You put your opponent on kings and raise all-in, he calls. You’re an 80-20 favourite to win the pot but unfortunately another king drops on the river. A suckout. You take a devastatingly bad beat. You miss out on all the money because of this.
