ah, i missed that full house

as for the straight though, i think you're mistaken - on KQJTA, villain can use any two broadway cards in his hand to make broadway, (eg QT), beating our K9. on KQJTx, he can make broadway with AQ, AJ, or AT

also, i've been struggling with number 6... maybe it's a trick question and the answer is simply "no"?

or, maybe it's a trick question in a different way - maybe we flop a made hand and a draw, and our opponent flops a weaker made hand, in which case our equity would increase on a blank turn. not sure if this was the solution you were looking for, but it technically answers the question :)


Hero: Kh Qh Kc Jc

Villain: 6d 6s 4s 3s

Flop: Kd 7h 6h  

                 Hero's equity - 86.5%

                 Villain's equity - 13.5%

Turn: Kd 7h 6h 2c

                Hero's equity - 90%

               Villain's equity - 10%

on the flop, we have a flush draw (and top set), our opponent has a made hand (bottom set), and our equity increases on a blank turn

if this isn't what you meant, i'm stumped

i'll go for the most manageable one, pretty similar to no. 1:

7. On how many board runout (types) does KsKcKh9h have the nuts? (Give the board runout (types).)

Straight flush: Th Jh Qh x x

Quads: 999xy with no straight flush possible

          999xx where x is lower than 9 

Full house: Kxxxx where x is lower than K

               K99xy where x and y are lower than K and no sf is possible (we block the 99 quads)

Nut flush: eg. Ah Jh 8h 5s 3c - unpaired board, no sf possible (unless we block it eg. AhJhTh)

Straight: if i'm not mistaken we can never make the nut straight w/ K9

Top set: no straight or flush possible, no pair eg. Kd Th 8d 5s 2c

i think thats all of them!
