Hello everybody,I don't know if anybody here will be able to help me, but I figured it cant hurt to ask and maybe somebody here has some insight for me!I'm a software engineering student working on a poker related project for school. As part of our project I'd like to offer odds for all-in situations like you see in some online clients or on TV. I've searched around a little bit and haven't found any info on the subject as it's hard to sift through all the poker odds information that is unrelated to my problem. I'm wondering if anybody here has any insight into what is the best way to calculate the odds of x pairs of hole cards at various stages of the play (preflop, post flop, or post turn)? (I'll stick to only hold'em for now, odds for other games will come later) So far I haven't been able to come up with any ideas other than running every possible board and counting the outcomes, but this seems so slow that there has got to be a better way. Does anybody know (or have any guesses)?As well, when the odds are shown online or on TV, do they take into account mucked cards or do they naively assume a full deck?If anybody has any resources or other forum suggestions where they think I could find relevant information please let me know also.Thanks,Nic
you've never taken a mathematics course? it's pretty easy to figure most things out for yourself.cardplayer.com has an odds calculator. pokerstove is free and has one too. i have a pen."a godless governement? who's in charge of stopping advances is science?""the president of boooya."
if you're not playing the notes in front of you it's not mozart.
