The higher in rank the hand cards, the more promising they are. For example, such cards as J, Q or Q, K are promising for drawing not only because they provide the probability to make a Straight, but also because you can make a senior Couple or strong Two Couples with them. They are even separated into a separate group and are called Broadway cards. The combination of A, K gives you little chance of getting a Straight, but with such a hand you can make a top pair or win another combination by a senior Kicker.
Even novices do not arise with the drawing of large neighbors, since Broadway cards are promising for entering trades from a wide range of positions, especially if they are suited. But playing middle and low connectors, beginners often make mistakes, overestimating them or underestimating them.
A one-on-one game – if there is only one opponent left in the bidding who entered them with a Raise, you should think about the prospects of drawing small and medium combinations. The probability of winning with them will be from 23 to 49%. These numbers reflect the odds of winning, taking into account the opening of all five community cards, if the opponents went all-in preflop. If you don’t get a draw on the flop, then surely don’t drag the cards to Rivera, so the chances of winning are actually lower.
Multipot – if there are several rivals in the bank, the prospect of drawing connectors in poker increases significantly. If the combination is obtained postflop, you will have the opportunity to make a big pot, as strong combinations like Straight and Flush are very profitable in a multi-pot.
When entering a trade, it is important to consider the size of the pot and the opponent’s stack. Since the probability of obtaining a strong hand is low, it is important that in case of a win, the size of the bank allows you to recoup all the unfortunate outcomes of events in the same situations. For example, if you lose in four hands out of five for $ 10, you need the conditions to be such that in the fifth hand you make a profit of more than $ 40. Low banks and short stacks of opponents may not allow to do this, so sometimes it is more profitable to fold a hand if the conditions for the draw are unfavorable.
