in reply to Poker Odds for Texas Holdem

It doesn't look like you're actually calculating any odds, you're just taking some odds you've gotten from somewhere, correct? There are so many variables in a typical poker game that witout more rigorous calculations I would not trust my money to your program.

    Well, there are a lot of people who've written a lot better stuff on poker odds: Sklansky, for example (and if you want to google "nofoldem" you might find something).

    That being said, I'm pretty sure that this does produce accurate results for the scenarios I mentioned: what are the odds of hitting a four-flush from the flop to the river? I think roughly 31.5%

    As to how to use that information, therein lies the art of poker. I just wanted something that I could take a quick look at if I wanted to know my chances of hitting a certain card.
