re: Poker & just to show it i guess
I still don't like the math here;
Lets assume he has 2 clubs, and you're all-in on the set.
You're about 35% to win, he's about 65% (try it on a hand simulator).
You're behind. You still have a bunch of outs, but obviously an all-in isn't best here.
Assume he has one club even:
With the all in, the pot is 7.30 or so, and he only needs to put in 3.50 to call. he's getting 2:1 on his money, and his odds
of hitting are around 35%, so he's getting odds to call just for the flush.
in other words, any flush potential hand is going to call, and in the long run, be ahead of you.
Any other hand (eg, TPTK, two pair, smaller set) is WAY behind, and you can let them trap themselves into the all-in on later streets.
God, I really hate to say it, but this is what a certain person I know calls your WAWB situation, and he'd be right!
