Odds are part of any gambling strategy and Texas Hold’em Poker is highly predisposed to probability-based decisions. The book presents the mathematics involved in card distributions in Texas Hold’em and provides a precise account of the odds associated with all gaming events.
No formal background in mathematics is necessary for reading this book, although comfort with some probability and set theory notions is helpful. In most cases, you'll need some college math to follow the formulas here, but this is not a requirement, because the numerical results are collected in tables at the end of each section.
The work is packed with formulas, algorithms and tables. Its primary goal is to allow the reader to quickly find the odds for own hand and for opponent’s hand, in order to improve his/her betting decisions. Every type of card distribution is tabulated in a logical, consistent, and comprehensive manner. The complete methodology and all the calculations are shown, so it teaches the player how to calculate probability for any situation for every stage of the game, even for other card games.
You will find here the real odds, returned by
precise mathematical formulas and not by partial simulations that most
software uses. The book contains much new and original material that has
not been done previously and provides a full coverage of Hold’em odds:
A special chapter of examples is included for a good understanding of how to count and compare the odds for expected own card formations and the odds of possible higher formations of opponents. Such information is a must for any Hold’em player, either beginner or advanced and this book is a trusted and professional source.
