Math And Strategy With Holdem

Recommended Posts

here i want to talk about raising hands like TT+...


BY the way they say you dont know how to play jacks


because Jacks are hard to play...lol...i got a solution


for that....



now a days everyone knows this 1/221 is AA


so KK+ is 2/221

so QQ+ is 3/221

so JJ+ is 4/221

and TT+ is 5/221



so all this means

KK+ =1/110.5

QQ+ =1/73

JJ+ =1/55

TT+ =1/44.5


so at a 10 handed table

it goes like this...(9 players + you=10 players right)


9/110.5 =1/12 for KK+ for someone to have you dominated

9/73 =1/8 for QQ+ for someone to have you dominated

9/55 =1/6 for JJ+ for someone to have you dominated

9/44 =1/4.88 for TT+ for someone to .....


so lets go over this



1 raiser and 4 callers

i say make your discision based on original raiser...


because with alot of callers and no reraise

the callers probably dont have a big hand...


So focus your math on original raiser try and pick up

tells on him...


after you decide if the original raiser is strong

by the stats you got above...


so 1 raiser 3x bb + 4 callers and blinds =16.5 bb


in the pot...so if i have TT+ here on Button or sb or bb


and i am almost last to act...


If I really feel the original raiser is weak

and the game usualy goes like LAG(Loose Aggro) during the session.


i feel like if the the hand can be won preflop

for 16.5 bb, id raise it pot 1/2...


reason is i dont want no one to call i just want

to pick up the 16.5 bb in the middle...


why you ask...here s why, if i do this twice a week

at the end of the week at a 2-5 game its like 82$ x 2=

164$ a week or 164$ x 4.3 =705$ per month



705$ with no rake cuz its preflop...

lets say this works every time...

this move pays for an apartment in montreal easily...



i know this wont work every time but be really carefull


with this move, with TT JJ QQ but with KK+ just do it

every time with 16.5 bb in the middle...

if you have TT-QQ take your time evaluate all tells

(betting patterns...LAG,LP,TAG game strategy also comes

into play and physical tells)


So good luck at the tables...


In the futur i want us to discuss more moves like this...


i will post more on the matter



Thanks for writing back in the thread IamRaplika

i have another math and strategy tip for you guys....


my goal if people chip in replies and help my

threads become popular,is too post more tips.

So the people of www.fullcontactpoker.com can learn

from me. but i dont want this to be a one way thing...

I ask for you people too contribute...


Be it with a story about a play i wrote about

on my tips...successfull or unsuccessfull .Or even

you may disagree or agree tell me why...


I want us to get better at the game as a whole...


ok all these are not base strategy but strategy add ons..

A kind of arsenal we are building for cash sng or mtt

hold em games...


i want too become good in all games so feel free

too post about other games in my thread....


Ok we all know their is 6 combos for every pair right...



AA - 6 combos with all 4 aces availible in a holdem game...

6 combos amounts too 1/221 to have aces


But lets say i have AK

their are only 3 aces left in the deck right...

what are the chances of me being dominated by aces

or even kings(3 kings left also)

in the whole at a table of 10...


3 aces left in a deck amounts to 3 combos

3 kings left in a deck amounts to 3 combos


so i have AK the chances of me being dominated

by AAs and KKs is 6 combos or 1/221


++ lets add QQs which probably dont fold

in a 2-5 game if i put out a reraise...



so the chances of being dominated is 1/221.

the chances of being called 1/221 by QQs.


so 2/221 =110.5


at a table of 10 people or 9 villains


it goes like this




so 11 in 12 you wont be dominated nore called probably

when you have AK...


so in a LAG game. the trick is with AK is too reraise between

1.5x too 2x pot.

Why so much you may ask... simply because AK is not

a made hand and is a drawing hand and in a LAG game

you want every one out...


ex: sb + bb + 3x raise + call + call + call +call

as in previous example in a 2$-5$ game...


so thats 82$ and you reraise too 1.75x pot =143$...


assuming this works every time and fails once


the math goes like this


82$ x 11 =902$ that you pick up


143$ x 1= 143$ that you loose



so 902$ - 143$ =759$


so lets say you pull off this move 3 x a month

you ll make 759$ every 4 months


for a grand total of 2277$ a year.this is with out

rake may i add...



Thanks for reading please help make this thread

a thread too learn from each other and contribute

with your critics and real life examples of these plays....




:icon_think: have fun at the tables
