1. ## Great texas holdem problem/ figure it out

You are in a 9 player game. Goal is to win with a deuce - seven off suit in a 9 player game EVERY TIME. The rules are
You give each player any hold cards you want.
You also have your choice of cards that turn up on the flop but can only turn up a matching deuce and not a seven.
You can NOT hit 2 pair on the 4th and or fifth card. A new card must be turned up if it gives you 2 pair.
Object is to be able to win the whole hand every time no matter what is turned on the fourth and fifth card.
See if you can get it.

2. i think i got it, as long as you consider a 3 way split pot is allowed

3. [quote=Scratch;1439776]i think i got it, as long as you consider a 3 way split pot is allowed[/quote NO splits. You will win the whole pot on a pair of deuces.

4. Each opponents gets one of these off-suited hole cards: K4o, Q3o. The flop is 962 rainbow.

Perhaps, I missed something, this was too easy.

4 players have AK
4 have QJ.

Flop has a 2, and nothing above an 8.

If the flop is 2 56 then the next two cards can be 56 and the board pairs and you lose.

This won't work. If the flop had an 8 and the next two cards were 9 and 10 then you'd lose. If the flop did not have an 8 then you could lose to a wheel straight.

Change AKo to AJo and QJo to QTo and you'd be OK with a rainbow flop of 2 6 8.

(And of course Data's solution works, too.)
