These numbers can be made individually in only one way, and the correct odds against either one is 35-1. Since the house only pays 30-1, it has an advantage on this bet of 13.89 percent.

When to Try a Steal
 
One of the single biggest reasons why most players lose is that they overestimate their abilities. It does you no good to be the tenth best Seven-Card Stud player in the world if you take the eighth and final seat in a game featuring the world's top seven players.
