Therefore I have 2, read them, TWO outs. There are six cards that improve the J/10 hand. the remaining three jacks and the remaining three tens. Therefor you have six, read it SIX outs to improve. I'd really like to hear your justification for how the remaining 40 some odd cards improve your hand. A flop of seven, deuce, ace does not improve a pair of queens.
+1, great thread. avg exp of someone adamantly refuting jmans math skillz?

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.

Apparently somewhere between 2005 and 2009 the poker sites found this thread and realized 2p2 discovered they were rigging the games. Good to see AA lose 3/4 times as it should.
