You have probably heard of the formula for playing a pair of jacks in the hole which is P =( 1/3S – C)/R. Where P is the pot, S is your stack, R is the raise and C is the seating arrangement and position of play. So far many people have testified that although it dose not defy general odds and therefore making sure you win every game it does lessen your chances of being called and when called your percentages improve so that you win far more than you lose (for further info check out <Trial of Knave> and <The Formula is Working!>).
I am now working on a formula for playing the big slick. Now Ace King is called the big slick because although looking good they rarely win leading to a slippery road ahead to the people who play them too strong. Some of the names that are used for this starting hand are – the big ugly for Ace King off suit and the Anna Kournikova after the tennis player, good looking but rarely wins!
At the moment P =( 1/3S – C)/R just doesn’t work for this and not working is not what we need, one does need a system I will work on it and hopefully come up with a compelling formula as I have just had 3 bad beats with this hand and had to suffer the indignity of justifying my bad play.
