Probability of events occuring in poker.
Hi, lately when I play I've been going with my insticts but lately I've been making a lot of wrong decisions, and I've been making bad reads. I'm going to take a few days off from playing poker and I want to learn more about common poker probabilities of certain events happening.
Right now, the only math I use in my game is just comparing the pot odds
to the odds of making my draws, which is pretty simple and easy. Late in tournies though, there are a lot of tough decisions, such as do I push all in with 5 players still to act with ace 9 and an M of 6.
Does anyone have any good charts that show the probabilities of specific events happening in no limit holdem?
For example, say I'm in middle position with Ace 8 off suit and a very short stack with an M of 3.5. I know that all in bets have been getting called often at the table, so I'm likely to get called when I push all in. It's folded to me, and there are exactly 5 players yet to act in front of me each with big stacks willing to look me up. What are the exact odds that out of 5 random hands, one of them is Ace 9 or higher, or a pocket pair of 8s or higher?
Or what about the probability of what I just posted but when I'm on the button with just the small and big blind still to act?
