What is poker hand probability?
You might know the basics of poker and what hand beats what, but if you also know poker hand probabilities of winning hands you can greatly increase your success rate.
Poker hand probability is a bunch of mathematical statistics that determine the likelihood of you hitting a hand or of having certain hole cards. Take an example of a coin flip, there are two possible outcomes; heads or tails. So you have a 50/50 chance of winning a coin flip. In poker there’s a huge amount of outcomes, with 52-cards giving a huge amount of different hands for the player.
