I'm suprised that suited cards seem to gain so much value, I've always thought they made a very small difference, it's very rare to flop a flush and it's not that often you flop a 4 flush (I don't know the exact probability of flopping a 4 flush but it's gotta be less than 20%). Also I don't understand why some hands have positive EV in, say 6th positive, but negative EV in 7th position.
What do you guys think about this chart?
You are about an 8:1 dog to flop a flush draw, and about a 2:1 dog to make it by the river.
The neg EV for later positions (when positive earlier) is due to this chart being compiled based on "only" a million played hands. Clearly if a hand is profitable in 6th position it should be at least that profitable in 7th position, and you would expect to see that with a larger sample size.
Also, as other posters have pointed out, the play of the hands will effect these numbers (remember this is an actual compilation of a million hands, not a computer simulation). This could account for your larger than expected difference between suited and unsuited cards.
