Random Hands We Picked To Go Heads Up
This is the reason to raise preflop with AA
6 Handed Game
80% to 35% huh? Still want to avoid raising pre flop with AA? QJ off suit now has a 3% higher chance to win the pot than when it was only heads up with the AA.
10 Handed Game
Its winning percentage went from averaging a little better than 80% all the way down to 25% in a 10-player game.
Also look at the drawing power of the connected cards that aren’t even suited. 98 has a great chance to win this pot, its only 10% the AA!
If the 98 off suit flops an 8 out straight it actually becomes favored over the AA. Ironically a flop containing both a T and a 7 (giving the T7 two pair) places T7 at a disadvantage against the 8 out 98 straight draw.
When we change 1 event preflop(98 off suit to 98 suited) everyone else loses half a percent or so and 98 moves from a 15.79% shot to pick up the pot all the way up to 19.48%, now less than 10% away from the AA preflop.
