Easy Poker Math

The concepts of poker math can seem to be daunting at times.

Fortunately many situations occur over and over, so committing the odds to memory is a useful and easy task.

  • To calculate the odds of hitting making your hand on the flop multiply your outs by 4, on the turn multiply by 2. The results will be very close to the true outs.
  • The odds of hitting your set on the flop are about 8 to 1. In limit hold’em you are never getting the correct odds to draw to a set.
  • The odds of flopping a flush when you hold two suited cards is 118 to 1.  You will flop a flush draw about 1 time out of 8.  Suited cards add about 2.5% to the value of your hole cards, so playing cards just because “they’re suited” is not a winning strategy.
  • 83% of the time someone will have an Ace in a 9 handed game.
  • 19% of the time an Ace will hit the flop.
  • Holding Ace-King suited will result in your hitting an Ace, King, a straight draw, a flush, or a flush draw 50% of the time. The hand is still a drawing hand with incredibly good odds on the flop, but getting married to the hand is costly.
  • Your odds of completing your open end straight draw by the river is 2.1 to 1. On the turn it’s 4.5 to 1.
  • The odds of pairing one of your hole cards on the flop is 2.4 to 1 if you hold no pair.
