    Default $10 Question

    I will transfer $10 from my full tilt account to anyone who can answer the following question-- ready?

    (However, if you reply without the right answer, you must transfer $1 to me.)

    Here goes:

    What is the percentage, preflop, of winning the hand with pocket Aces against 7 players with random cards?

    Good luck!

    Watch this be a trick question in the sense that you must win against 7 people preflop by getting them to fold not the overall race odds.

    Well, if we do that, strictly preflop and no flop, its allllllmost 100%. There is always a chance someone else has AA for the split. But if that counts as a win, its 100%.

    That's why I didn't answer! He knows everyone can run it through a data system and get a 39ish answer so the challenge must be some perverted, twisted, Quesosonic Beam convoluted something or other ...
    To the true gambler, money is never an end in itself, but simply a tool; as language is to thought.

    Simple - it's 0%.

    Assuming the 7 players don't fold, nobody can ever win a hand preflop
    There are only three ways to play pocket Jacks; they are all wrong.

    Very good Dave!

    Nice try Queso - but you needed more replies because you're $7 down.
