      Would anybody know whether there is a book that is only about pokerstatistics? I would like to have a small book with some useful facts in it like:

      Whats the chance to make the nutflush from a flushdraw?
      What's the chance to hit two pair on the flop?
      What's the chance to hit trips on the flop, whil holding 2 different cards in the deck?

      etc. etc.

      Thanks,

      Dont need a book for that:

      EDIT: links not allowed. Come on guys! Please stick to the board rules!

      As for the %chance to complete flushdraw count ur outs (flushdraw has 9 outs) look it up at this chart


      You can also use the 2-4 thumbrule. This means that if u multiply ur outs on the flop by 4, u get the percentage of making that certain hand on the river. If u multiply ur outs on the turn by 2, u get the chance that u make ur hand on the river.

      theres a book called the math of poker by david sklansky (think also ed miller & mason malmuth)

      but its really theoretical and hard to read.

      You mean Mathematics of poker? This book is from William Chen und Jerrod Ankenman. This book is not for beginners and it isn't mainly about hand probabilities. :)

      I think Sklanksy wrote "Theory of Poker"

      Mathematics of Poker is definitely by Bill Chen and Jerrod Ankenman.

      Has anyone read Mathematics of Poker? What can I expect from it? Is it still applicable to a pokergame? I'm not afraid from some math.
