Odds of Flopping a Set in PLO

PLO has a different chance of flopping than Texas Hold’em. This means you will need to create new strategies for PLO. These strategies will help to beat the competition, and win you more money!

The Odds that You Flop a Straight

To flop a straight you need to have hole cards that allow you to connect with the board to make the straight. For example, a pair with kings, queens, or a jack, a pair with eights, nines, or a suited eight, can flop the straight.

These combinations of holes can only occur when certain starting hand conditions are met. That is why it is so important to know how likely you are to get a straight. This information will allow to make informed decisions and increase your bankroll.

You can have a strong hand in PLO if you are holding a suited Ace, King, or Queen. Your chances of hitting the full house are 80% with your ace, queen, or king. The odds of you getting a flush against a king or queen are about 85%.

Re-raising before the turn can increase your chances of winning the pot with either your ace or king. This can be a great way of doubling up on your opponent, and taking a large portion of the pot away!

Your chance of flopping a set with paired hole cards is much better in PLO than it is in Texas Hold’em. Your odds of making an entire set with your paired holes cards are approximately 7.5-to-1 (which is more than twice as likely as making a set using non-paired Texas Hold’em cards).

This is because a complete house with paired hole card sets has three ways of hitting the board, while one with a paired pair of ace or king has only two. Drawing to your set, which is the second way to hit it with a paired hole card, ace or q, is the best.

The ace is crucial in this strategy as it increases your chances of hitting the flop with set. If your opponent has set, you’ll be able win the draw. This strategy can also be used in PLO to increase your equity because a backdoor flush draw adds approximately 4-percent to you total equity.
