Your problem is that you are reading crap like this. Read a 2+2 book and maybe you can understand my math, moran.

I recommend this one:

I'm sick and tired of this "OMG I GOT BAD BEAT, I HAD A POCKET PAIR AND ALL YOU HAD WAS OVERCARDS!"

Preflop, a pocket pair only has 2 outs to improve,overcards have 6! (This is not even taking into account straight and flush draws!) That means overcards are at least a 3:1 favorite to improve and win the hand. So stop whining morans.
I took me actually several months to internalize OPs theorem, but finally I became a winning player!



PokerStars Game Hold'em No Limit ($1/$2) - 2007/07/23
Table 'Botein III' 6-max Seat #3 is the button
Seat 3: fafnir86 ($200 in chips)
Seat 5: Hero ($200 in chips)
fafnir86: posts small blind $1
Hero: posts big blind $2
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Hero [Jc Jh]
fafnir86: raises $198 to $200 and is all-in
Hero said, "wowowowowowowowowowwo"
xflixx said, "LOL"
xflixx said, "LOOOOOOOOOL"
Hero said, "i has jacks"
DonPokerKing said, "no limit 1/2 ?WTF?"
xflixx said, "ICANT BELIEVE THIS"
Hero said, "jacksssssssssssssssssssssss"
xflixx said, "DONT DO IT"
Hero said, "omg"
xflixx said, "dont"
xflixx said, "dont"
Hero said, "fafnit, lower pp?"
xflixx said, "just fold and sit out"
DonPokerKing said, "this is pretty sick right here"
xflixx said, "we wont do this"
xflixx said, "this is sick"
Hero: folds
xflixx said, "i'm leaving"
Hero said, "call with jacks?"
fafnir86 collected $4 from pot
fafnir86: shows [4d 7h] (high card Seven)

I mean, he might have a lower PP, but if we do the math, chances are too big, that we are facing unpaired holecards here!
I'm so glad about my fold when I saw his random 47off.

FOLD YOUR PPs very frequently!! ty

Yes, all the people who posted in this thread arguing that I was wrong are clearly losing players. Do you see why?
this is the best post in the thread, DUCY?

this was the first thread I viewed when I came to BBV.

needless to say, I was confused and strangely aroused.

Jman, you need to learn what an "out" is. an out is cards needed to improve on a hand to win. QQ doenst need outs to beat AK. AK needs outs to beat QQ. therefore there are 48 other cards in the deck and only 6 of them pair the AK and straight and flush possibilities only help a little

Re: STOP OVERPLAYING POCKET PAIRS AND WHINING WHEN YOU LOSE WITH THEM!

mycoolhamm, you need to learn what a "jman" is. a jman is a successful poker player who knows how to please the ladies. jman doesn't need noobs telling him how to tell them how to play cards. jman tells you stuff, and you nod and smile. therefore ninja-bumping an awesome thread serves little purpose other than to remind other noobs how lame they are and how totally awesome, funny, and cool jman is, especially by comparison.

Re: STOP OVERPLAYING POCKET PAIRS AND WHINING WHEN YOU LOSE WITH THEM!1!!1

I felt the need to bump this, because recent events show that at least one player has adopted my strategy of twocards>pairs with sterling results. GG DOUBLEDRAG! Don't let these morans who accuse you of cheating get you down, me and you understand the real maths behind the pokers.
