The maths behind card games

  1. Sep 26, 2006 #1
    I am interested in learning about the probabilities involved in card games, i.e., poker. However what would I be required to study for gaining this knowledge of how much chance is involved for certain combination of cards, and I really have no idea on what I could begin looking at. I was wondering if somebody happening to read this might know what I should look for and explain the basics/fundamentals involved for this, if it does not take too much of your time. Many thanks,

    I dont have that much information but i know one thing. That is find and read books on "game theory". There are many books written on the topic. I hope this helps
