For instance if you hold Ah 6h and the flop comes Qd 7h 2h you have a flush draw. There are thirteen hearts in the deck in total. Two of them are in our hand and two on the flop so that is four. That means there are nine hearts left in the deck and we have turn and river to hit our outs.
Approximated poker odds vs. Pokerbility calculated odds
The trick to figure out the approximate chance of hitting the flush is to multiply your outs (9 hearts) times the number of chances to hit it (2 - turn and river). So that would be nine outs multiplied by two chances and that is 18. Then we just take this number, multiply times two, and we get the poker hand odds percentage value. So the approximate percentage that we will make the flush is 36%. The free poker odds calculator software would give you the exact percentage - 34.97%. In case you hold the Jd Th you would have open ended straight draw with eight outs (four kings and four eights). We have two chances to hit our outs so that is 16. We multiply times two and we get approximately 32%. The Texas Holdem poker odds calculator software would give us the exact number - 31.46%.
Keep in mind that the percentage stated is the percentage of the time that you will hit your draw, not the percentage that you will win the pot.
