Odds Oracle Walkthrough

Custom Question Example

For this example, we assume four players have three cards to a low in seven card stud hi/lo. We want to know how often two or more of them will make a low by seventh street.

The Situation

We use a little bit of range-syntax magic to describe our situation. "$L" is a macro standing for any card that can make a low (A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8). The curly braces "{}" indicate that the cards inside have no ranks duplicated.

Formulate the question

Next, since we want to know how often a certain event occurs, we click on the "How often" question:
Wtoracle1

We continue our question in the next menu with "at least two players":
Wtoracle2

Next we select "make a lo":
Wtoracle3

Finally, we select "by seventh street":
Wtoracle4
The green light indicates that our question is now complete.

The Simulation

Once our question is formulated, we click the "Start" button and the Odds Oracle gives us the answer:
