Luck In Poker

New statistics can show us who the “luckboxes” really are.

Sure, you may know the odds to flop a set or what percentage you are to win a hand when you are all-in preflop, but the team at OneBillionHands.com are coming up with new ways to quantify just how lucky you are in any given situation.

Using a vast collection of previously played hands in sortable situations they’ve developed new metrics that showcase both the skill and the luck involved in poker – it’s called the Situation Score. The team can take live hands, apply similar situations to them and apply a score to let you know who outplayed who and who just got hit over the head with the deck.

Check out this very cool article on Deadspin which showcases the luck factor in the never ending “luck vs. skill” argument.
