If you’re settling in for a game of Poker at Betfair Casino Online, it might interest you to know a few of the interesting probabilities that surround the game. For instance, did you know that the odds of getting any given starting hand, say a pair of 6s, is 0.45%? A little under half a percent chance, about 1 in 200, that you get dealt the exact cards you’re thinking of. The odds naturally shift as the game goes on but from a purely mathematical perspective that’s what you should be expecting, Likewise, with pocket pairs, you’ll likely be seeing one every 17 hands (or there about) so keep an eye out for it! If someone’s keen to raise during the blind (and this doesn’t fit their playstyle until this point) you might have a good reason to suspect something. While a pair of pocket pairs is fairly common, getting a flush is a little more uncertain. If you have two suited cards in your hand and another in the flop, then you might be tempted to think you’re in with a solid chance of a flush. But the odds of landing a flush by the river is about 15 to 1, potentially risky if all you have are low, unpaired cards that share a suit.
