re: Poker & Do we want a 3-way ai pre w/ AA?
I dont care what anyone says, I would take AA in a 9 way all in. Its the best hand in poker! if you went all in on a 9 way pot with AA you would have a 16% chance to win the hand, while everyone else, no matter what they had would have an average of about 10% to win the hand. Even though 16% is not very good, you have to look at it compared to the other percentages, and it still dominates, even if everyone was playing the high end and some guy goes all in with suited 43 and has a 14.5% chance because everyone has paint, and obviously that leaves more small cards in the deck, but your 16% chance still has them beat.
Now it is true that the fewer amount of people in the hands, your odds of winning the hand do get better, but my point is that no matter how many people are in the hand you still have a mathematical advantage. Omaha is obviously different.
