STOP OVERPLAYING POCKET PAIRS AND WHINING WHEN YOU LOSE WITH THEM!1!!1
      #4056987 - 11/29/05 05:54 PM

I'm sick and tired of this "OMG I GOT BAD BEAT, I HAD A POCKET PAIR AND ALL YOU HAD WAS OVERCARDS!"

Preflop, a pocket pair only has 2 outs to improve,overcards have 6! (This is not even taking into account straight and flush draws!) That means overcards are at least a 3:1 favorite to improve and win the hand. So stop whining morans.

DO THE MATH MORAN! POCKET PAIR OUTS: 2. OVERCARD OUTS: 6. 2:6=1:3. OVERCARDS ARE A 3:1 FAVORITE.

You must really suck at poker.

NOOOO AKs has only one suit, hence can only make one type of flush, therefore pocket pair has double the flush outs, 11 for AK , whereas 7 7 has 12 s and 12 s to catch!!!

pocket pairs are big favouritessss

I don't know how you are this dumb. This is like first grade arithmetic, reducing fractions. Seriously, you just lost all credibility on these forums. Please tell me your name on Party Poker so I can add you to my buddy list.

You're not properly discounting outs in the fact that pocket pairs need runner/runner to make their flush. And I was talking about unsuited as well as suited overcards, moran.
