Over the next couple of
weeks, I am going to introduce some
probabilities, odds and suggest how to use
them.


One often quoted poker
statistic goes as follows...


So 10,J is a better
hand then A,K ? Of course not,


A,K is a 63% favourite
against 10,J.


The above statistics
are very interesting, and can certainly
convince your opponents that you a
complete bore, but are they of any use?
How can you take advantage of this
information? The easy answer is you can't.
In this case, I will quite happily commit
my whole stack with A,K before the flop in
NLH tournaments, but would have to be
under extreme pressure to do it with 2,2
or 10,J. The reasons for this are simple.
If you should get called, and you have to
win the hand to stay in the tournament,
what might your opponent have?




Remember though, when moving
your chip stack in with any of these three
hands, the best result is that your
opponents fold. Then you win 100% of the
time! See you next week! Dave
