Poker is a game based on mathematical probabilities. Knowing them is essential to make profitable decisions. However, very few players are even close to knowing the exact hand probabilities. The following statistic is based on over 2.5 million hands played. It’s not important that you have all poker probabilities in mind. Nevertheless, one should have certain poker probabilities in mind, such as the chance to complete his flush draw on the turn and river. To become a good poker player, you have to understand the game and certain situations, and you can only do that if you are intensively involved with the game. Just knowing the rules and basics is not enough to play poker successfully.

How often do you get aces before the flop, how often do you hit a set, how many different flops are there and how often do you flop a gutshot? Answers to these and other questions can be found in this article.
