Explanation of card equity from peek at end

edited January 2020 in APT Questions

Do the card equity values shown from "peek at end" take into account the opponents actual hand, or just what the opponent might have had based on their actions? I am having a really hard time understanding these values. I folded with terrible cards in middle position. Dealer has 26%, cut off is 23%, next person is 7% , then me. Why the huge gape from 23 to 7 - neither of them saw action before I folded. Then the player before me is at 9%, the player before them is 17%. They each just called the BB. Why the huge discrepancy, esp if position is weighting this value so much.

    As I continue to look at this number, it seems it does take into account the persons hand, however, i still have hit hands where this number doesn't seem to add up. In this image

    an AQs has a slightly lower percentage than my hand, a 2Ko, and an ATo has a much worse percentage. How does that make sense? No cards have been dealt yet.

    These are the raw odds for the remaining hands at that point. Here it is pre-flop. With those four hands involved, those are the odds of the hand winning between those four hands.

    The numbers there aren't really all that relevant to any decision making because you don't know your opponents' hands. However, they help you start to learn how strong various hands are against multiple opponents and considering possibilities.

    The percentages shown make sense - the AT has very low odds of winning. Pairing the T doesn't win and the AQ is favored if an A comes up. K2o is slightly favored over AQs because of the small possibility of trip 2s and more importantly the fact that one of the other A is gone already (in the AT hand), so only two remain. With the QQ out there, the AQ doesn't have the ability to win with a Q. Some of that is offset by flush and straight possibilities, but the other factors have more weight.
