can someone explain to me how this works???
OK this is a little something i discovered when i was messing around during the early years of hold em. i dont remember how i came across it or whatever or why i even experimented with it...here it is:
basically, you want the "overcards" to your cards to be less then the unseen cards on the table.
for example: 2/7 has 19 over cards. 12 cards over 2, 7 cards over 7 get it?
the unseen cards are the hands of your opponent + the burn cards. so if you're sitting at a full table. it would be 16 + 3 = 19 unseen cards.
the goal is to have your hands "overcards" at -2 over the unseen cards. so at a full table it would be 17 over cards/19 unseen cards
so for any number of opponents, its 2 overcards less then the unseen cards.
confused? hope not...
anyway, heres what happens. 90% of the time i hit a pair with my hand. Does it win? usually not, but thats not what i want to know. im wondering how does it work? why do i hit pairs when i do this?
only way i can think of using this in a game is if im in late position, everyone has limped in. its on me and my crappy hand shows i could hit a pair. then i can just pray that i flop the pair with a board of low cards, its checked to me...i bet and take it down. heh heh..yah right.
