      It's the turn play I'm most interested in hearing your opinion on - I have always lived by the sentence: You can't lose to a higher flush if only 3 flush cards is on the board (along with: Oversets doesn't exist). Of course both scenarioes will happen, but quite rare. Well anyway, what to do?

      Hi Mugge88!

      Go all-in and hope for the best. I have often seen two pair, sets and flushdraws in these situations, so you cannot really fold your hand here.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Hi

      Very simple model (if any mathematician here correct me):
      - 2 players;
      - ur delt 9h, he got 5/51 chance of getting higher heart and 7/51 of getting lower;
      - ur dealt 2h, if he hit higher than 9h first card -> 10/49 for both hearts
      - if lower than 9h first card -> 5/49 for both hearts with one higher than 9

      5/51*10/49 + 7/51*5/49 =~ 0.035 =~ 4% of having bigger draw

      with 10 players dealt its even more unlikely.

      actually this calculations are wrong, when 10 players are dealt the chance of getting over draw for one particular player is less than 4% but the chance that any player gets it might be bigger than 4%, so never mind :D

      Hehe, I don't know how to calculate it, but it doesn't matter much, I know it's a rare occasion (I believe he had 6 or 7 high flush in this particular hand btw)
