For some reason, they believe that only professional poker players with extensive experience can learn how to count cards in poker and how to calculate their outs. In addition, very often in topical forums and various sites devoted to online gambling, you can find statements that the accurate calculations in poker you have to be actually a professor of higher mathematics.
But all of these statements do not correspond to reality. Below we will try to tell you how to correctly count cards in poker disciplines, having only a high school education, you can even not full.In poker disciplines, outs are cards that can be used to strengthen your winning combination. For example, a player has clubs K and 9, but on the board are clubs A and Q and spades 8 and 3. In this case, he doesn’t have any exact hits, but he does have a natts Flush Draw.
From this example, the gamer needs one more common card on the board of clubs to win. But how do you calculate the odds of winning, and how do you calculate his hand to strengthen? As it turns out, it’s quite simple to do. The point is that there are 13 hearts cards in the playing deck, 4 of which are already involved in the current hand.
Therefore, the total number of “uninvolved” clubs is 9 (13-4), and the deck consists of 52 cards, but 6 have already been dealt. It turns out 52-6=46 cards. Having 9 outs out of those 46 cards, the probability of a hand is 19.6% or 0.196 (9/46).
But there is no need to constantly in your mind to calculate these chances, because they are already calculated for each situation in Texas Holdem. There are even special tables today that show the odds of a poker player improving a pocket hand.
