Odds of winning against 1, 2, 3, or 4 random hands



  1. Hello, thanks for the great information above, I have found this very useful. I have been wondering about the percentage chances against larger numbers other that four people. Obviously they will decrease but by how much? Is there a formula that you work with in order to come up with these figures?

  2. Thanks for reading.

    You know, I’m not sure how I did this any longer. It was done originally on a spreadsheet, but now is just a graphic file.

    Apparently is a popular post. For some reason, people like to look at this chart, but I really can’t see it’s use beyond 2 or 3 random hands. This shouldn’t be used to determine what hands to play preflop at a full table of 9 players; there are all kinds of starting hand charts for that. This chart assumes all hands are all in and does not take into consideration how well any of these hands play postflop.

    This chart really should only be used to evaluate whether to raise when there are only a few players left (ie. in the small blind with everyone else folded) or what chances you have when you push all in late in a tournament situation.

    If you want to build a complete chart for yourself, it’s possible that I built this chart from feeding data into a program called “Pokerstove“. Search the internet for it; it’s a program I recommend as it will give you odds for any given hand against any given hand OR RANGE OF HANDS, which is even more important. In other words, you can say I have AT, what are my chances against one player that I think may be raising into me with any pair plus big Aces and it will give you stats.

    Good luck!
