6+ Texas Hold’em Short Deck Hand Rankings

Have been looking for a reference picture for Texas Hold’em 6+ hand rankings and could not find one where there are some odds that come with it and also with easy readability for mobile phone viewing.

So a friend helped to calculate the number of possible hands, probability and also the chances you will get that hand.

I do love doing Microsoft Powerpoint Slides, so this is my latest masterpiece.

Let me know if something does not add up.

The Chef

With ideas in her head,
she acquires ingredients from creation.
She picks up some bread,
some meats and some crustacean.

With purchases in her hands,
she assembles them into her curation.
Each ingredient has a plan,
that’s all part of her preparation.

She cook in her pots and pans,
dishes of her imagination.
Juggling flavours and textures,
from experience and experimentation.

She host her friends regularly,
not any one group particularly.
With smiles, laughter and her kitchen art,
everyone sense the generosity from her heart.

She is the artist,
the scientist,
the chef,
the friend
and my wife.


There are so many characters we love on TV.

Arya Stark, the headstrong, feisty, independent, young girl turned assassin from Game of Thrones.

Wonder Woman, the fearless, blunt, righteous warrior princess of the amazon from DC.

Thomas Shelby, the ambitious, family oriented, dapper Birmingham gang leader from Peaky Blinders.

Sheldon Cooper, the idiosyncratic, unapologetic, socially challenged genius from Big Bang Theory.

Jake Peralta, the talented and intelligent but childish detective from Brooklyn 99.

Phil Dunphy, the positively enthusiastic who sees himself as the cool dad of 3 from Modern Family.

And the list goes on…

Then it hit me.

Why do we love them so much?

It’s simply because they are who they are as a character and they are consistent. Some characters do evolve, but who they really are is usually consistent deep down and that’s why we like them so much.

As an individual, I’ve been struggling since young in what kind of person I want to be. For everyone that tells me to be myself, there will be others that will tell me to be something else with all the best intentions.

I’ve decided.

I’ll be who I am.

I’m not the alpha.

I’m not your typical.

I’m not what you think I should be.

I’ll be who I am.

I’ll be a character in your story.
