A poker flip, is where two players who are associated in a hand have an equivalent (or almost equivalent) probability of winning the hand.

At the point when you flip a coin and call either heads or tails, you have a 50/50 possibility of being right. In poker, the chances of winning a poker flip ordinarily aren't actually 50/50, however they are very close. In the event that you and your adversary both have a 47-53% possibility of winning the hand, at that point you are supposed to be in a "flip" circumstance.

Example-1: Action folds around to the button, who chooses to push all-in with Ad-Kd. The SB folds, while the BB settles calling on the pocket Sevens.

This is an exemplary "flip" situation, as one player (Ad-Kd) has a 47.71% possibility of winning the hand, while the other player (pocket 7s) has a 51.95% possibility of winning the hand.

Example-2: Two players see a flop of 9c-8c-2h and are all-in and turn over:

Player 1 - Ac-Kc

Player 2 - Jc-Jd

This is another "poker flip" circumstance, as the player with Ac-Kc is 51.21% to win the hand, while the player with pocket Jacks is 48.79% to win the hand. Let’s understand the term poker flip in a better way.

Settle on Your Opponents Make the Choice

You can pick when to take the flip. In most of all flip circumstances one player moves all-in and the other player calls.

Just by being the player to have pushed, you get the opportunity that your adversary will fold. At the point when this happens, you win the pot 100% of the time. In the event that the rival calls, at that point you're a half shot.

As should be obvious the guest never has any fold value while the pusher consistently does. This means that you need to be the pusher. In case you're failing to make any moves, it will be hard to constrain your adversary into committing an error.

Force your adversaries to decide to flip with you or fold. In case you're continually settling on that decision as the guest, you're lessening your edge and your winning chances.

When is Your Best Chance for a Flip?

Remember that 30% isn't 50%. Essentially, you need to try not to call all-in wagers with effectively big hands. Players will regularly call with hands, for example, A♠2♠ searching for a flip realizing this hand is in a way that is better than even cash against K♥Q♥ or some other non-matched, non-ace hand.

Sadly, coordinating with some other hand with an expert poker player in it has you at somewhat less than 30% to win - same as with a pair.

So, a hand like this is an extremely helpless decision while seeking after a flip. To begin with, you need to get fortunate to try and be in a flip before you can get the opportunity at winning the flip itself.

This goes for hands, like 3♥3♦ as well. This is definitely not a terrible hand, and is in front of something besides a higher pair. Yet, in case you're facing a higher pair you're in a truly difficult situation. You need to know the scope of hands your adversaries will push or call all-in before you can pick your own range. In numerous competition circumstances, pocket threes may be an incredible possibility for a hand to take a flip with.

Yet, on the off chance that your adversary has an enormous stack and is the sort of player that just lifts hands with real strength, you're risking it all on the belief that they have something like A♥K♥. With this we come to an end of our discussion about the poker flip. Now that you have learned the flip, you are one step closer to become a good player.
