The Cards

All Cards
This card system is designed to advise you of the strength of your hand pre-flop. Armed with this information, you will be better qualified to make a call about how to play based on the table situation.

There are nine cards included in the system covering tables sizes from playing head-to-head all the way up to a multi-way pot in which there are ten interested parties staying in the game.


How The Cards Work

Single Card Select the appropriate card from the set for the number of players who are interested in the current pot.     An  example card for eight players is shown on the left.

This card shows all 169 possible combinations for the pocket cards. Suited cards are represented on the top right of the card, and unsuited cards are represented in the lower left area. Pairs occupy the leading diagonal, with pocket aces in the top left, and pocket twos in the lower right.

Using computer simulation, hundreds of millions of games of poker were played. For each possible starting hand, the number of times Close Upthese cards would have won or drawn was recorded (had the played stayed through the river card). All the results were then tabulated, sorted and bracketed to generate these strategy cards.

The best possible starting hand is marked #1 (In all cases, pocket aces), the next best hand is marked #2 (pocket kings), all the way down to the poorest starting hand which is marked #169.

Why The Cards Are Different
2 Player Card
The more players that stay into a pot, the higher the typical hand required to win is. When playing head-to-head, a high card or pair may often be enough to seal the victory for you. As the number of people who stay in a pot increases, so does the average hand required to win. This fact changes the values of the starting hands.

With a small number of players, the value of having an ace (suited or not) in your hold cards is quite noticeable. However, as the number of players in the hand increases, the chances of any player hitting a straight or flush becomes much higher, and so the importance of suited cards, connected cards (cards numerically next to each other), and even loosely-connected cards (cards numerically near each other that could possibly make a straight) becomes much higher.
If a partial straight appears in the community cards, and you are playing head-to-head, the chances that one of 10 Player Cardyou has the required card to complete the straight is low, but as the number of players at the table increases, the chances that someone has the required card is much higher.

Hands that are great hands to hold head-to-head could be very poor choices to enter into a large multi-way pot, and vice-versa. These cards will help teach you how these probabilities change depending on the number of players in the pot.
