A Conversation for Poker - The Card Game
Researcher 225295 Started conversation Apr 24, 2003
I read that in a game of draw poker with seven players the average hand before the draw is a pair of aces. How was this determined and what is the average for five players (before the draw)?

I think almost all 5-card draw math was done and tested by the pro himself "Crazy" Mike Caro. You simply deal out 7 hands and write down what they all have. Then you assign a number to every hand, and average them all out. I am sure a computer is used to deal out a proper amount of hands. With 5 people I would say the average hand would be Kings or Queens.
