Calculating 'Outs'

Did You Know: You earn VIP points for every quiz completed. Use these points to level up and reach VIP 5.

In Poker the term 'outs' refers to the number of cards that we think will make us the winning hand. By the very nature of the term 'outs' we have a drawing hand, which is unlikely to be the winning hand unimproved. It is therefore important to be able to calculate the number of 'outs' we have in a hand.

Calculating 'outs' is done by counting the number of cards that will make our hand for example:

If we have a flush draw holding: A3 on a flop of 210q

The following cards left in the deck will give us a flush:

456789jQk

Therefore in this flush draw example we have nine outs to make a flush.

Lets do one more example for clarifiaction:

If we are trying to calculate our outs for a pair and a flush and are trying to improve to two pair, three of a kind or a flush and we hold: 87 on a flop of 7k3

The following cards left in the deck will improve our hand to this hand strength:

2456910jqk77888

This gives our pair and a flush draw 14 outs to improve.

With all this in mind lets have a go at the questions and calculate how many outs we have!
