# Second number in hand strength distribution

I realize this information is almost certainly somewhere I could access it but I could not find anywhere.

In the hand strength distribution, there are often two numbers. eg:

 code: ```Hand Strength Count Frequency (cumulated) two pair 11 3.9% (6.0%)```

Is the second number without card removal?

Hey bodhisoma,

First of all, welcome to the forum!

The second number is the cumulated number of hand combinations in a range.

Let's say we have a range of AJs+,KJs+,QJs on a board of Js3h2h.

On that board, you'll find you have 9 top pair combos (42.9%) and 8 A high combos (38.1%). But behind A high you'll also find the 81% as the cumulated number of combos. This means that 81% of your range (42.9% + 38.1%) is made up of top pair combos and A high combos.

Hopefully that makes sense!

Kind regards,
Tino

Yep, that makes perfect sense.

I think I had an instinct that what you describe was the case but I was thrown off by the drawing hands not adding to that cumulative count.
