Poker is a little hobby of mine and I’ve been keeping track of hands played (in computerized versions of the game) in a database. Amusingly enough, over the last several years, I’ve collected about 16,000 hands. I’m interested in creating some visualizations with this massive amount of data. . . A first, rather rudimentary pass (built with Processing) is at the link above. It shows Texas Hold’em starting hands and their win rate — green for good, red for bad, the brighter, the better/worse (the values are all normalized so the betting amounts are irrelevant, each hand is valued according to it’s average “unit” win per time played. “s” indicates if the hand is suited, “o” for offsuit) The obvious ones — AA, KK, QQ, AK — are best, of course. What’s interesting to see are the hands that are overplayed — QJ suited, Q10 suited, J10 suited. Oh, they sure do look pretty, don’t they. . . Of course, this takes very little into account, nothing about how many players, limits, position, etc. But it’s a start. . .
