What is a Race in Poker?
A race in poker is when two players are all in and have approximately the same winning chances. This is also known as a coin flip because, just like when flipping a coin, either player has around 50% winning chance.
Race Poker Example:
One of the most common examples of a race is when the villain has a suited A K hand, and the hero has pocket pairs, let’s say, a pair of jacks. The hero has around a 54% chance of winning the hand, while the villain has a 46% chance.
