Poker Hand Odds Charts
Below find a couple helpful poker hand odds charts for some very common probabilities and scenarios you'll come across at the poker table.
The chart on the left walks you through your % chance of improvement on the flop and turn with some common made hands or draws. The chart on the right explains which hand is more likely to win in some common hand v. hand scenarios.
Play poker often enough and these percentages/ratios will become second nature and you'll more than likely not even need to look at these charts anymore!
If you've watched or played poker for any length of time you'll be well familiar with the term "coin flip." If you're an amateur player and wondering why there's so much talk of it it's because it's a very, very common situation in poker tournaments big and small.
Two players are all in pre-flop, hands on their backs. As you might have guess, both hands are basically even odds to win - ie 50/50, or that of a coin flip.
The most common "flip" situation you'll see (or more likely be in) is the classic pair vs. two overcards. Eg AK vs 99 or AJ vs 77. This works for any pair and overcards (even 22 vs 34, for example).
Truthfully the odds aren't *exactly* 50/50 in these scenarios but they are close enough that they are considered a coin flip. The "made" hand, however, - ie the pair - usually a slight advantage pre-flop.
In the case of a low pair versus well-coordinated overcards, though, like 22 vs JT, the JT actually has the slight advantage,
As the board plays out those hand odds change, obviously. If you'd like to see how the get altered try punching some scenarios into the poker odds calculator above.
Good poker, at its heart, is a mathematical game now and the quicker and more accurately you can calculate proper poker odds in real time, the more empowered you can be to make good decisions at the poker table.
Knowing your odds of winning at any point in a hand is a good base of understanding but poker is a game of incomplete information and you won't have access to your opponent's actual hand to make your decisions.
What good poker players do is go through a systematic thought process throughout the hand to figure out what the most likely hands they are facing in any circumstance.
This is called "Putting Your Opponent on a Range" and is a critical stepping stone in taking your game to the next level. Once you have determined by process of elimination what your opponent's hand might be you can then apply your poker hand odd knowledge more accurately.
There are also Poker Hand Range Calculators available online that can help you do this.
Pot Odds, Implied Odds and More
Poker players also need to take into consideration a few other sets of odds to understand where they are in a hand:
In Texas Hold'em, poker odds are THE probability tool you need as a poker player. In fact, you should always be thinking about poker odds - yours and your opponents' - when making decisions. In short, poker odds is the probability of you winning that hand, or the price it offers (pot odds).

How to calculate poker odds quickly?
To calculate your poker equity - or how often you should win a hand, you can use a simple formula. Count how many outs you have. For example, if you're drawing to a flush, you have 13 suited cards, two in your hand, two on the board - leaves 9 outs. The chance of you hitting on the turn is 9*4 (+4) = 40%. On the river it's half of that - 9*2 (+2) = 20%.
- For a half pot bet, you get 3:1, and so need 25% equity or more to call. - With a 3/4 pot bet, you have 7:3 pot odds and need +30% equity to call. - With a pot sized bet, you get 2:1 pot odds and need +33% equity to call. - With a 2x pot bet, it's 3:2 pot odds and you need 40% equity to call. So, say your opponent has a hand lesser than a flush and you're drawing to a flush. They bet the pot size on the flop, you may elect to call. But if they bet the pot on the turn, your equity has decreased. Not to mention that if they have a hand like two pair, they also have equity to hit a full house and beat whatever cards you're drawing to.

In Poker, what are implied odds?
Implied odds is the relationship between the size of the current pot and the pot you're expected to win. Because sometimes the pot doesn't lay the correct odds, even when you decide to play. Because you're expecting to get more action and win more when you hit your hand.
Implied odds changes things. For example, in Limit Hold'em your opponent bets $20 into an $80 pot and your call gives you pot odds of 5-1 (you're risking $20 to win $100). But, if you expect your opponent to call a bet or raise on the river if you make your hand, your implied odds are 6-1 or 7-1.
Poker odds: When to call?
You'll often be asking this question if you're drawing to a straight or a flush. So you'll need to calculate if you're getting good enough odds to call a bet or raise on the flop or turn. First, you need to calculate how often you'll hit your draw - by first counting your outs.
If you're drawing to a flush, you have two suited cards in your hand and two on the board, that means 9 cards of that suit left in the deck. On the flop, it's 9*4 (+4) = roughly 40% of hitting. Meanwhile, on the turn (so the odds of hitting on the river) is 9*2 (=2) = roughly 20% of hitting.
With pot odds, think of the number of cards again. 52 in the deck, two in your hand and three on the board (flop). That means 47 unseen cards (including your opponents' hole cards). Nine cards can save you but 38 cards don't complete your draw. So that's a 38:9 ratio - or 4:1 (or 25%). So if you're not getting 4:1 / 25% pot odds, you shouldn't call. This ratio changes again when you consider implied odds.
What are GOOD poker odds?
Say you're drawing to a flush and have 9 outs - you have roughly 40% equity on the flop and 20% on the turn.
- For a half pot bet, you get 3:1, and so need 25% equity or more to call. - With a 3/4 pot bet, you have 7:3 pot odds and need +30% equity to call. - With a pot sized bet, you get 2:1 pot odds and need +33% equity to call. - With a 2x pot bet, it's 3:2 pot odds and you need 40% equity to call. So, say your opponent has a hand lesser than a flush, like two pair. They bet the pot size on the flop, you may elect to call. But if they bet the pot on the turn, your equity has decreased. Not to mention that if they have a hand like two pair, they also have equity to hit a full house and beat whatever cards you're drawing to.
In poker, what are pot odds?
Pot odds refers to the relationship between the size of the pot and the size of the bet. For example: If there's $10 in the pot and you have to call a $2 bet. Then you are getting pot odds of 5-1. If you have to call a $5 bet in the same $10 pot, you're getting pot odds of 2-1. How big is the pot; how big is the bet?
Do poker odds change with more players?
Absolutely. The more players involved in a pot, the less your chances of winning it. That's why it may make sense to shove pre-flop with certain hands instead of just calling, hoping to narrow the field to just one, or perhaps zero!
