- How often does each starting hand win against a specific hand or random hand?
- What are the odds of your opponent holding a pocket pair when he raises?
- What is the probability that an over-card will flop when you hold JJ?
- How do you determine if drawing is profitable or not?
Texas Hold’em Odds and Probabilities answers all of these questions and more. Every single decision you make at the poker table is in some way related to odds and probabilities. Whether you are deciding to bet, call, fold, raise, or even bluff, odds and probabilities are an integral part of the decision-making process.
Texas Hold’em Odds and Probabilities covers all forms of the game, including limit, no-limit, and tournament situations. This book does more than just show you how to calculate the odds – more importantly, the focus is on how to apply odds to make better decisions.
Hilger’s approach shows that you do not need to be a math wiz to be successful in poker. Simple concepts and strategies that anyone can learn will have you matching wits with the top players in no time.
Some of the topics include: raising draws for value, backdoor draws, facing all-in decisions before the flop, protecting your hand, the impact of stack sizes, and much more. In addition, the most comprehensive collection of Texas Hold’em charts and statistics ever put in print is provided as reference.
Poker is a fun game, but it is even more fun when you win. Expert players understand the simple math behind every decision they make – now you can too.

Part Time Poker Review 8/10 Stars
"If you don’t understand basic odds calculations (pot odds, implied odds, outs and discounted outs) and need a resource that explains them slowly and carefully, this may be your book."
Ready Bet Go Review
"Even though the math behind the game of poker is fairly simple, some people still don't understand how to derive numbers and/or how to use them in action. Matthew Hilger, author of a best-selling book on playing poker on the Internet, takes the seemingly complex subject and breaks it down into usable information. He covers limit and no limit as well as tournament situations and focuses not just on how to calculate odds but also how to apply them to make better decisions. Because he uses everyday language and very few formula, his simple concepts and strategies mean you don't have to be a wiz in math. Illustrated with charts and diagrams, the book spans the math gap to cover the needs of the beginning, intermediate and the experienced player."

"This is a book which has to be read and re-read, with salient points underlined or highlighted. It is a true, hone-your-skills stuff, for every level player and even some of the know-it-alls who need to fill in the mathematical gaps they too often ignore. Excellent stuff to help you save money, make money and sharpen your game at every level."
