I was listening to an audiobook from the Pokerbrat where he stated that:

'If your holding a small pair then your a 4.5 to 1 underdog to someone who is holding a larger pair'

We all know he's talking about cards right so no smart-alec answers please

He said that knowing the odds on frequent holdings is something that every poker player should know by heart.

Could any member recommend a link to somewhere that provides an overview or guide to statistics like these?

No thanks M.

I'll pass on that one. I'm looking for a chart that I can drill into my head for use in Live play especially.

I found something that was kinda what I was looking for. If I can memorize this by heart over the month of December then I'll be very happy.

Number of Outs....................Draw from the flop..............Draw from the turn

4 (inside str)..........................16.5%............... .....................8.7%
6 (2 overcards)......................24.1%............. .....................13%
8 (open ended str)...............31.5%.......................... .........17.4%
9 (std flush draw).................35%......................... .............19.6%
12 (flush and inside str).....45%...................................... 26.1%
15 (open ended flush)........54.1%............................... ...32.6%


Likelihood of hitting your draw in Ratios

Number of Outs.....................Draw from the flop............Draw from the turn

4 (inside str)...........................5:1................ .......................10:1
6 (2 overcards)......................3.2:1............. .......................6.7:1
8 (open ended str)................2.2:1......................... ...........4.7:1
9 (std flush draw)..................1.9:1...................... ..............4.1:1
12 (flush and inside str)......1.2:1................................... .2.8:1
15 (open ended flush)........0.85:1.............................. .....2.1:1

Thank you M,

I'm going to try to commit this information into my extremely limited cranial capacity instead. Wallpaper for the phone is not a bad idea though.
