How to Use the Poker Odds Calculator
Pick the poker variation you're playing in the top drop-down menu and the number of players in the hand (you can add in up to five players). Odds are available for: Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7-Card Stud, 7-Card Stud Hi-Lo and Razz.
To enter each player's hand, click on the respective suit in the center of the wheel and then the desired value of the card. For example: If you want the King of Diamonds in Player 1's hand, click on the Diamond, then the K. Repeat for each card in each player's pre-flop hand.
Once those are set proceed in the same manner to fill in the flop and turn cards. When all the cards are entered properly click "Get Odds" and you'll see exactly what each player's odds are to win, tie or lose the hand at that moment. Repeat as needed!

What is a "Flip"
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.
More on Calculating Poker Hand Odds
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.
