I was playing a PKO yesterday and looked down at AA from EP. It was raised by a loose player and I 3 bet. The button cold 4 bets. The original raiser folds and I can either 5 bet jam or flat and see a flop. In this instance, I 5 bet jammed and got called by AA. I kind of laughed because what are the chances right. But then the flop came with 2 spades (I had the ace of spades) and I could feel that it was going to be one of those sick hands. Sure enough, turn and river were both spades. How crazy is that?

Hi

Playing AA is somewhat complicated because you try to get as many chips as possible, however there are players who play with any card and always win, despite starting with good cards there is a risk of losing

KK against AA

I had a similar situation, except I had KK, my opponent had AA, the flop came K and I took the pot. But in your situation to catch 4 spades, more luck:):D

AA vs KK is a standard 80/20 hand. Not really a statistical anomaly for a lower pair to beat a higher pair. :confused:

There are formulas and tables of the probabilities of facing with higher pair at a table with a different number of opponents.

Here is a table of probabilities that opponents have at least one pair higher than our:

Here, for example, from the point of view of dudes with JJ and with tt from screenshots, when they were in all-in, they had a probability of facing with 3 pairs of the highest rank, respectively 0.00008 and 0.00028 or about 0 .01% and 0.03%

At least two or three times I had a similar situation. But I do not see anything extraordinary in this. It's just poker.

Somehow i had nothing to do and i manually calculated for JJ the probability of crossing with QQ or with KK or with AA for Hold'em and for "6+" оn the 6-max table :D

For Hold'em:

3*5(4/50 * 3/49)*(1 - 2/48 * 1/47 - 2 * 4/48 * 3/47)^4 + 3*10*(4/50 * 3/49 * 2/48 * 1/47)*(1 - 2 * 4/46 * 3/45)^3 + 6*10*(4/50 * 3/49 * 4/48 * 3/47)*(1 - 2 * 2/46 * 1/45 - 4/46 * 3/45)^3 + 6*3*10*(4/50 * 3/49 * 2/48 * 1/47 * 4/46 * 3/45)*(1 - 2/44 * 1/43 - 4/44 *3/43)^2 + 6*10*(4/50 * 3/49 * 4/48 * 3/47 * 4/46 * 3/45)*(1 - 3 * 2/44 * 1/43)^2 + 3*12*5*(4/50 * 3/49 * 2/48 * 1/47 * 4/46 * 3/45 * 4/44 * 3/43)*(1 - 2 * 2/42 * 1/41) + 3*6*5*(4/50 * 3/49 * 2/48 * 1/47 * 4/46 * 3/45 * 2/44 * 1/43)*(1 - 4/42 * 3/41) + 3*30*(4/50 * 3/49 * 2/48 * 1/47 * 4/46 * 3/45 * 2/44 * 1/43 * 4/42 * 3/41)
7.18071%

For "6+":

3*5(4/34 * 3/33)*(1 - 2/32 * 1/31 - 2 * 4/32 * 3/31)^4 + 3*10*(4/34 * 3/33 * 2/32 * 1/31)*(1 - 2 * 4/30 * 3/29)^3 + 6*10*(4/34 * 3/33 * 4/32 * 3/31)*(1 - 2 * 2/30 * 1/29 - 4/30 * 3/29)^3 + 6*3*10*(4/34 * 3/33 * 2/32 * 1/31 * 4/30 * 3/29)*(1 - 2/28 * 1/27 - 4/28 *3/27)^2 + 6*10*(4/34 * 3/33 * 4/32 * 3/31 * 4/30 * 3/29)*(1 - 3 * 2/28 * 1/27)^2 + 3*12*5*(4/34 * 3/33 * 2/32 * 1/31 * 4/30 * 3/29 * 4/28 * 3/27)*(1 - 2 * 2/26 * 1/25) + 3*6*5*(4/34 * 3/33 * 2/32 * 1/31 * 4/30 * 3/29 * 2/28 * 1/27)*(1 - 4/26 * 3/25) + 3*30*(4/34 * 3/33 * 2/32 * 1/31 * 4/30 * 3/29 * 2/28 * 1/27 * 4/26 * 3/25)

The probability that all 5 opponents have a pairs higher than our JJ at a 6-max table )))
P = 0.0000000016688466628%
Or 1 time out of 59.921.622.655

For example: JJ vs AA/AA/KK/KK/QQ

There are formulas and tables of the probabilities of facing with higher pair at a table with a different number of opponents.

Rough math shortcut is [number of players] x [number of higher pairs] / 2. So if you have TT and there are 3 other people, it would be 3 x 4 / 2 = 6%. Beats the hell outta memorizing the chart.

So if you have KK, with one other opponent, it is 1 x 1 / 2 = 0.5% that you are up against AA.

Regardless, once you are KK vs AA (or any lower pair vs. higher pair) you have about a 20% chance to win.

Yes, thank you! This rule works well if our pair is not very small...

I just calculated for the sake of sporting interest for JJ in Holdem and in "6+" :D

Yes that has happened, and I have also had my AA cracked by the other AA. When you play a lot, you will eventually see nearly everything, thats possible in poker :)

I saw it at the table with others and I remember some of them saying lol at the table but then one of them got his flush and then there was wow at the tables and omg. I know I was in that situation myself, but I don't remember how it ended. With KK I remember we both lost with KK to an inferior hand and someone said it's a shame there's no 5th k lol. But nothing shocks me anymore when it comes to poker because I think I've seen almost everything. But I'm waiting for the next surprise, you never know if that's really all

Interesting question as it seems almost impossible but I remember a 1 million dollar tournament a long time ago where Conor Drinan vs Cary Katz got knocked out of the tournament with Aces vs Aces because Katz hit flush hearts on the river :D

Unforgettable moment you can watch here:

Hey !
Funny hand !
Happened to me more than once showing the same hand, but only once aces vs aces.
I am always rooting for my suit when I am all in versus the same pair (like 8s vs 8s or so)
That's very lucky ! And I have been in the other end too. Of course I have.

Congratulations on this move, I'm not very lucky with AA, I saw it once a long time ago, what a joy and experience for you and what a disappointment for your opponent, these are things of Poker
