It does not matter whether you have played poker for a few days or years, each and every one of us has seen some unbelievable poker run outs happen. The thing is that the more you play, the more runner runners you are going to see, solely due to to the longer time that you spend on the felt but how often do these outcomes happen percent wise in the long run? Let's find out by taking a closer look at some of the common poker spots and then you can use this information to annoy your table neighbors.
Let's be honest, there is very little to fear at the table pre-flop whenever you are dealt two kings but despite your cowboys looking damn extravagant in the pocket then usually this little feeling of "maybe my op got aces" will still remain, especially if facing counter-aggression.
In reality, if you are playing your opponent heads-up then you will be facing aces once every 220 hands but if this action is taking place at a full-ring table then the odds change drastically and you should expect to see aces once every 26 times. Still quite a long-shot!
Any self-respectable poker player should know that the probability of flopping a set with your pocket pair is roughly 7.5 or 1. Meaning that one time out of every eight you will flop your three of a kind. However, the likelihood of your opponent flopping a set at the same time with you is about 100 to 1. This taking into accounts that both of the players have the pocket pair already.
If you are playing a 9-max poker table then you will see a set over set roughly once every 1200 hands and that with the assumption that every player at the table plays every pocket pair that they are dealt.
You will experience quite a few of the three of a kind's cracked during your poker career but what about the bigger brother hand, quads? The odds of you hitting quads with your pocket pair if you play the hand out until the river is somewhere around 123 to 1 or 0.8163%. Looks quite a low right but still more likely than getting dealt aces pre-flop which is 0.4525%.
You have probably seen some poker videos where pros complain about their once in a lifetime beat and it usually consists of quads being beaten by the higher quads. But how likely is for that to happen? Both players holding a pocket pair and play it out until the river then both of them will hit quads once every 39 thousand hands...
