Percentage table key.

  • Gutshot – A straight draw with only one card able to complete it. e.g. 6-8 on a 5-9-Q board (only a 7 completes).
  • Straight – A standard open-ended straight draw with more outs. e.g. 6-8 on a 5-7-Q board (4 and 9 complete).
  • Flush – A hand where another card of the same suit is needed to complete the draw.
  • s + f – Both an open ended straight draw and flush combined. e.g. 6❤️ 8❤️ on a 5❤️ 7♣ Q❤️ board.

How to use the percentage odds chart.

First, determine your number of outs, and use the color coding for guidance. Next, check the chart to find out the percentage odds of completing your draw, noting if you’re at the flop or the turn stage.

Now, the chart has two columns for percentage odds at the flop, and here’s why: The first two columns, showing odds with one card left, are what you’ll use most often. These odds are the standard ones, factoring in the potential for another bet in the next round of betting.

The column labeled “last 2 cards to come” is applicable when you or your opponent go all-in at the flop. In such cases, since there’s no expectation of facing another bet or raise in subsequent betting rounds, you can use these enhanced odds for seeing two cards instead of one.

How to turn a percentage in to a ratio.

To convert a percentage into a ratio, start by dividing 100 by that percentage. After this, subtract 1 from the result, and you’ll get a ratio of x to 1.

For instance, suppose you’re on the turn with a flush draw, and your chance of completing the draw is about 19.6%, which we’ll round to 20% for simplicity.

Divide 100 by 20, giving you 5. Then subtract 1 from 5, and your result is 4. Therefore, your odds are 4 to 1.

Rounding percentages to a number easily divisible by 100 is recommended to simplify the calculation.

Quick percentage odds chart example.

When you’re holding 12 outs on the flop, the maximum bet you should call is one that’s about 25.5% of the pot’s total value, or roughly 25%.

For example, imagine your opponent bets $50 into a $100 pot, making the pot $150. To use the percentage method correctly, remember to add your potential call of $50 to this, resulting in a total pot size of $200 – this step is crucial! So, with a pot of $200, you can call up to 25% of this amount, which is $50. It might seem a bit complex at first, but the key is always including your potential call in the total pot size calculation.
