      now I dont know if I am the only one to notice this. But when I see a pair on the board, I've seen it happen enough to assume that at least one person has a pocket pair in the hole. Could there be a reason, mathmatical or not why this seems to happen so much??

      Don't really know what your asking, but heres some thoughts:

      If board is paired, less chance opponent has a set. (Combo wise).

      If board is paired, more chance that opponent won't fold there pair (whether it be overpair or an underpair). Because they assume you are full of shit, or atleast they assume they are ahead of your range.

      You see pairs less often on unpaired boards because opp will be setmining pp's the majority of the time and just c/f there pairs. But on paired boards ppl are less inclined to fold because they are more inclined to feel like they have the best hand.

      Hope that helps.
