Default Re: Interesting \"paradox\" concerning suited cards

There's a greater chance of the TT making a winning flush against the suited AK if that has anything to do with it. If not, just ignore the previous statement.

There isn't, and it doesn't. The chance of ThTd picking up 4 or 5 hearts or diamonds to make a flush is the same whether it's up against AsKs or AsKc. The chance of it being a winning flush depends on the chance AK makes a full house or quads, and that is the same whether AK is suited or unsuited.

But there's a larger chance of your TT being suit "dominated" by an offsuit AK than a suited AK.

EDIT: Sorry, this doesn't really pertain to the problem at hand since in neither example are the suits dominated. I was just assuming a random AK and random TT.
