This is a discussion on Same hand Percentages within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; When a player is all-in and called, the hands go by quite quickly and you can't pause so I'm not sure this is true, but
When a player is all-in and called, the hands go by quite quickly and you can't pause so I'm not sure this is true, but if anyone knows then reply here.
Basically I think if the two players currently have the same hand the online site will say each player has a 50% chance of winning the hand.
Lets say one player has J10 of clubs and the other had J2 off-suit (pick any 2 suites)
The board comes KKQQ with 2 clubs.
Both players have Two pair with a Jack kicker, does the site say they both have a 50% chance or does work out the odds for the flush and straight draw.
I think it gets it wrong and say 50/50, but you don't get time to study it.
At least in Pokerstars it gives you the correct % information. I've been in a couple of those and it doesn't display 50/50.
The only scenario where I often see 50/50 is when both players have the same cards.
With the resources the poker rooms have it's fairly trivial for them to code those calculations correctly, so I'd be very surprised if it wasn't correct. I can't see why they'd take a short cut like that when it would have a negligible impact on their overall coding effort.
It may actually be more effort to put in a short cut like that, since in other situations the equity calculation needs to take account of all potential cards anyway.
Any card of clubs, as well as any ace or nine gives a victory to the player with J10 !!!Obviously, the player with J10 has a lot more chances !!!So I don't think the poker room can show the odds - 50/50 !!!
