Here are a few situational questions about hold'em hands. 1. Here's an easy one: Can you flop a full house against one opponent and have no chance of winning or splitting? 2. What is the worst possible hand you can have on the river and have the nuts? Specify all five cards. Give them a shot and I will be back to post the Answers!

1. If you have pocket deuces, your opponent has either 3-3 or 3-2, and the flop comes 3-3-2, you can't win. In fact, if you have any pair smaller than aces and the flop gives you a fullhouse by bringing you the third of your pair plus a higher pair, and your opponent has either the remaining member of your rank and one card to match the higher pair or a pocket pair of the rank of the flopped pair, your'e drawing completely dead. So, for example, your pocket kings with a flop of A-A-K against either A-K or A-A also has you dead in the water. 2. The worst possible hand you can have on the river and still have the nuts is Q-Q with a board such as Q-8-7-3-2 rainbow. No worse hand then a set of queens works, because you can't then specify a board that wouldn't permit someone to have a straight or better. If you have J-J with a jack on board, for example the four non-jacks could not include a card higher than a jack, because that would give anyone with that pocket pair a higher set, thus the other four cards must be smaller than a jack. And that necessitates some three-card combination that would give someone with the right hole cards a straight or better.

Even tougher one: What is the minimum number of hands such that atleast one of them has no pot equity? This is, such that one can not win or tie (including board ties). Specify the hands. Related to the question, what is the maximum number among the group that can have no pot equity?
