Chasing A Flush on the Internet

Chasing a flush on the net – Occasionally the numbers just don’t add up!

There’s an age old debate in poker – must you chase a flush? Initial of all we have to define what we imply here by "chasing a flush on line."

Chasing anything in Hold’em poker will be the practice of gambling to stay in a palm in the hope which you will produce a far better palm, even despite the fact that you may have absolutely nothing at the time. So chasing a flush means betting which you will get the card or card that you simply need to complete your flush palm to the turn or river. You cannot chase a flush before the flop because at that time you only have 2 cards so the flush isn’t on.

So let’s say you happen to be betting one of the big poker sites on the web, you have been dealt the Ace and 9 of spades and you have paid to see the flop.

The flop is twos seven-s Kd and one of your opponents comes out wagering strongly with a fair sized raise, what do you do?

1st of all ask your self what sort of palm you’re up against. The possibilities are triples, one more flush draw, a pair of Kings or a complete bluff, so as it stands you happen to be only winning towards the bluff with your Ace. On the other palm should you hit a spade in the last two cards you may have the nut flush and could only lose to a full house or four of a kind.

About the face of it you may well assume that statistically you might have about a fifty – fifty probability of hitting your spade, after all there is two cards to arrive and 4 suits so there must be about a half likelihood, proper?


You already have 2 of the spades in your palm and there’s another 2 showing around the table, so you know five cards and four of them are spades. That signifies you have 9 spades left available out of the forty seven cards you haven’t seen, which is only a forty two per-cent possibility of catching your flush.

In the event you do wager within the turn and don’t make your flush, what do you do then? You might have probably now turn out to be pot-committed, you’ve put so much into the pot that you may well as properly wager again to the river unless there is a major increase or all-in in opposition to you, except now your chances of generating the flush have dropped dramatically to only twenty one %.

But what of that other factor, the mysterious web poker syndrome? What I mean by which is though you statistically have a 42 % possibility of making a flush, is that what in fact occurs in reality? If you played the same hands in the identical online poker table 100 instances would you receive a flush 42 times? From my personal understanding I doubt it. Flushes seem to come around a great deal much less frequently than 42 out of 100 instances!

That’s just my own opinion and I am positive the poker web sites would tell you a various story, except the way I see it is forty two per-cent is the very Ideal you are ever going to obtain and you might nicely have a great deal much less chance than that of hitting your flush.

Bottom line? Chasing a flush online is a quite risky strategy that sucks you in and over commits you, without giving you enough of a chance of pulling out the winning hand.
