Case Study: Texas Hold'em

1045 words - 5 pages


a. The probability that you are dealt pocket aces is 1/221, or 0.00452 to three significant digits. If you studied either Section 4.5 and 4.6 or Section 4.8, verify that probability.
1st Card- 4 cards that are aces out of the 52 cards in the deck; so 4/52 = 0.0769 or slightly less than an 8% chance that the first card is an Ace.
2nd Card- Since first card dealt was an Ace, there are only 3 aces out of 51 card remaining; so 3/51 = 0.0588 or slightly less than a 6% chance that a second ace will be dealt.
Therefore to find the probability that these two events will happen, you will need to take the ...view middle of the document...

Therefore: 0.0769 x 0.0588 x 0.08 x 0.0612 = 0.0000221 or a 1/45,249 chance of these happening. Ironically this happened to me when playing. I drew the pocket kings and another guy drew the pocket aces. After the flop, I went all in, since there was a king in the flop. Only two guys called and one had pocket Aces. Damn if he didn’t get an Ace on the river card. Cost me $100. Quit playing Hold-em after that.

c. Using the result from part (a) and your analysis in part (b), find the probability that you are dealt a "pocket pair," that is, two cards of the same denomination.
2nd Card Match- Since first card dealt has no relevance: there are only 3 aces out of 51 cards remaining; so 3/51 = 0.0588 or slightly less than a 6% chance of drawing pocket pairs.

d. contains at least 1 card of your denomination. (Hint: Complementation Rule.)
Using the Complementation Rule: P(E)=1-P(not E)
1st Card- There are 2 cards that's your denomination out of 50.
2nd Card- There are 48 cards that's not the pair denomination out of 49.
3rd Card- There are 44 cards that would not make a pair out of 48.
Since there are three cards on the flop, that means there are three possible outcomes and need to multiply the three events by three.
1-((2/50)(48/49)(44/48))x3=1-((0.04)(0.978)(0.916)x3)=1-0.108(0.10750176 actual), means that there is an 89.2% chance of trips Not happening.

e. gives you "trips," that is, contains exactly 1 card of your denomination and 2 other unpaired cards.
1st Card- There are 2 cards that's your denomination out of 50.
2nd Card- There are 48 cards that's...
