To be successful in poker, you should be at any time during play of a hand, will be able to reduce the chances of catching the hand to calculate pot odds, you are.

Knowing the probability that a particular hand in poker can be done by calculating hand odds. Determine how many outs you have will give you the option of the amount of times you hit your hand to be calculated by the river.

Say you are for being A-9 in the heart of Texas Hold’em and the flop comes, you have two hearts. Beat the chances of another side of the heart by the river will be approximately 36% or 3 to 1. (She touches her hand 1 in 3 times)

You can do this in the first, the number of outlets to check. Outputs are the number of cards in the deck, the rest (visibe not yours) that can help you improve your hand.

So if we use the hand above as an example, and you have A-9 in the hearts and catch two hearts on the flop, you have 9 more hearts in the deck that can help fill in color. 2 hearts in your hand + 2 hearts on the table less than 13 hearts in total = 9 outs.

If the number of outs multiplied by four, we obtain an approximate percentage of hitting your hand by the river (9×4 = 36%).

Pot odds in poker is the relationship between the size of the pot compared with how much it costs to call a bet of another player. The higher the ratio between the size of the pot and the cost of calling a bet, the better your poker pot odds.

If there is $ 40 in the pot after the flop and a player bets $ 10 and two other players calls his bet, then you are always 7-1 in pot odds. If you continue to draw the color A-9 on the flop, you have found a 36% or 3-1 in the hand odds to catch your card at the river, so call or even raise the bet will be a right decision.
