your calculation seemed fine, cheers. That calculation applies to any hole cards I believe. They say you'll hit one of your cards 1/3 times. with the AK you have the added advantage of taking it with a high card ofcourse. so if you're holding AK you're bound to see an Ace or King approx 32% of the time.
Do people fold to the 2 dollar raise?
the 2 Dollar straddle you mean? no surprisingly 80% of the time 5/7 players will call it to see a flop. If everyone tags along for the ride than the fellow who straddles almost always will check and not raise further preflop. Otherwise 20% of the time he'll re-raise another 5$ on top.
Is it guaranteed that it'll be raised 2 dollars?
only 2 players, myself and one other dont straddle. The rest will pretty much every hand.
How many people tend to fold on average?
I hate playing bingo so its always me and this other solid player who dont like calling 2$ straddles with stuff like 10,2 etc which the other fellows do btw . These guys will call the straddle with absolute buttkiss ..J2o, 46o, 10-4o etc..
I'm all for the push strategy you mentioned, just going all in but i'm confused as judging from the amount of calls I will ALways get, whats the chance that those guys after putting me on that range and still call hit one of their cards.. Theres literally no fold equity once they do hit something, they believe they're golden. In the long run will my shove following a miss on the flop be profitable?
@WVHillbilly: most of the time people call the straddle, since they play such a wide range of hands and they're fish they just have to see the flop. but every now and then they'll raise the straddle amount by another 5-6 dollars. They do so mostly with 88+ , any broadway cards ,or high suited cards or even medium suited connectors like 67, 78, 9-10
the capped initial buy in is silly, not sure but its the hosts rule, you can buy in as much as you want after the initial buy in though. 3-4 of the players will be down 400-500$ every game and we play at least 3-4 times a week. Cant believe how they're still sticking to this same type of game, but since I play the exact opposite (tight) its hard for me to tweak my game. Have suffered ridiculous bad beats.
