So after having to watch my language a bit with the 2 youngest in the room I had to look up the odds myself on that one.
85.7% favorite on the flop when it all went in.
Even after the bad turn card I was still a 70.7 favorite to win.
Anyway, used the Card Player odds calculator & noticed they had an app for the iPhone, so I downloaded it & it's pretty slick. It was free @ the iTunes store, where they did have others & some cost $. Anyone pay for any of those?
Now I can calculate how bad my beats are in live games. Look out!
