The best hand against Aces? Which calculator is correct?
A simple question every one has to know the answer to. But it may turn that no one knows it:-)
Yes, I had red the very interesting thread "Why is 56s best hand against pocket Aces?" here:
But the question is still opened. At least because the Cardschat odds
calculator shows that the 76s can get 23.55% from the aces, while 65s only 23.23%! So, who and how much?
Follows my letter to an other forum, with an other calculator, with absolutely different results.
Please, see what is my problem. I want to know which are the pocket cards that play the best against Aces. All these more than 15 years that I play Hold'em, I thought that these are 87 suited. Yes, but when accidentally tryed on PokerStove some 65s they turned to be better. I was tottally astonished and tryed some calculators.
Here are the results (in %) I obtained:
1 - CardPlayer (PokerListing is the same but work very slowly)
2 - PokerStove (PokerRanger gives the same results but arounded to the hundredth)
3 - CardsChat
4 - Old FlopTurnRiver (as a couple of months ago)
5 - New FlopTurnRiver converter
1 2 3 4 5
JTs 21.55 21.717 21.88 21.35 21.42(0.35 tie)
T9s 22.61 22.765 22.43 22.50 22.66(0.33)
98s 22.47 22.623 22.11 22.40 22.27(0.30)
87s 22.87 23.021 23.33 22.97 23.02(0.28)
76s 22.87 23.033 23.55 22.73 22.88(0.34)
65s 22.87 23.056 23.23 22.51 22.87(0.39)
Well, it is of no practical importance these tenths, or hundredths of the percentage, but they have its theoretical meaning. I know that you use some optimization methods (I had red the source code of PokerStove, which is no more supported, and the author used some pre-calculated tables for faster obtaining the results), but the truth has to be one! And I expect you to help me to find it.
Also, I had found this thread "Why is 56s best hand against pocket Aces?":
Have a good day and all the best.
