I find it interesting how you could have the highest percentage to win after the flop yet you are behing currently. Let me give you an example:

You and Player A are the only players who are in the pot. The blinds are 400/800. You just raised to 1600 since you're in the Big Blind. Player A called. You are holding: :kd4: :qd4: . The flop comes:

:jc4: :7d4: :8d4: . Player A bets 1000 in chips and you have 2500 left so you push all in. Player A has 5000 left so he calls. Player A has :jh4: :10c4: . Right now, you are behind since you only have King High and Player A has a pair. Yet, you have a 52.32% chance of winning this hand. Now, looking at the percentage, it was a good push. I just find it a little illogical that you have the highest percentage to win yet you are behind in the hand. Just a thought.

Thay is rather peculier. Its my thought and I may be stating the obvious that you have two overcards to the board and the nut flush draw and possibly the runner runner straight factoe comes in there.

mainly because holdem is a 7 card game and not a 5 card game. those other 2 cards to come have a greater chance to give you the best ending hand than him. pretty simple stuff. you should put in some omaha hands and see when like trips are behind to a draw.

35%~ for the flush, 16%~ for the over cards hitting, and two more runner runner instances to give you the straight for about another 3%~
