Does anyone know what the chances of losing are if you get dealt pocket Aces in a heads up texas holdem game? I've seen the chances in a 10 handed game, but never for heads up.

AA against two random cards are 82% to win the hand. They range from 75%-87% depending on the hand they are up against.

How can you determine something like that when so much of poker is betting and bluffing? When you play one on one, aren't you playing the player as much as the cards? It's been a long time since I played poker but I watched a lot ten years ago.

BillRyan I just assumed he meant all in pre as there is no way to put a percentage on it otherwise.

The answer can't be determined. The guy could know your tells or be bluffing with a unsuited 2-7.

Wrong. Questions like this are assumed to be pre-flop odds. There is no bluffing AA pre-flop.

Hopefully, your opponent isn't sitting with an identical hand.

There was one of those a few years back in the WSOP. It was pretty viral at the time. I'll try and add the YT rather than spoil it, because it's fun to watch.

If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Sadly, anyone that has played a lot of poker has had that happen to them.

The worst is when your opponent gets a flush and takes you out. 😪
