View Full Version : Poker calculation help

hi guys, especially maths wizzs.

I'm trying to develop my own strategy, something I can call my own and stick with. so, a few questions.

How many different starting hands are there? like all poker hands, not just playable ones.

And how do I calculate how many different hands I would play if...lets say I only played pairs, two picture cards, or suited connectors.

If someone could give an example of how to calculate that kind of thing it would be great, as Id love to be able to work that stuff out myself and work out an optimal % of hands played for a particular style of play.

Thanks everyone
