Got a few questions. Please help!

Let's start with an example.

Your hand = (4 , 5 :heart

The flop = (Q , 7 , 2 :heart

So from my point of view it looks like this (at least in my head)

2 , 4 , 5 , 7 , Q

My understanding of the situation.

You have hit a flush draw, Any heart will make a flush for you. You have 2 chances. A turn, A river to hit your draw. You can use the rule of 2 and 4, you count your odds.

2x9, hit on the turn. = 18% chance to hit flush

4x9, hit on the river. = 36% chance to hit flush

So, for example, if someone all ins you. You would have a 36% chance to hit your flush and win (assuming he isn't trying to hit a flush that beats your flush) You compare your pot odds, If pot is 2000, You need to call 500, You would have 4:1 pot odds(20%) odds compared to your 3:1 hand odds(33%) (if) your hand odds are greater than the pots odds, you call. In this case we would call because it would be profitable.

hand odds > pot odds = profitable play

hand 3:1(33%) > pot 4:1(20%) = Profit

A straight draw is not yet possible, but might become possible if we hit a 3 or a 6 on the turn. So it would only be x2 at best. Do we only count for the flush draw, or do we stop and start to think about the possibility of a straight?

(simply say we don't have straight draw yet, there for we only count the flush draw)

We would have 8 outs to hit a straight draw, So a straight would only be possible on the river. So we have 16% chance to hit a draw, Then another 16% chance to hit that draw. The math I would do is,

16% x 16% = 2.5%, So on the flop we have a 2.5% chance of hitting a straight with our hand, which could count for an addiotional out. 2.5% = 1.25outs (rounded to 1 out)

So there you have it, We have 9 outs because of the flush, but 10 out because of the straight. Do we count 9 or 10 out in this situation?

We can also hit double 4's, or double 5,s to make a set or 2 pair. making another monster hand. Since there are 3 4's and 3 5's on the river We can say, hitting a 4 and a 5 makes a monster hand(two pair) and hitting 2 5's or 2 4's makes a monster hand(a set). To hit 2 4's would be 3x2 =6% x 6% = 0.3% chance, Same with 2 5's = 0.3% chance and a 4 and a 5 would be roughly 0.3% chance as well. Giving us a 1% chance of hitting 2 pair or a set.

So 1% is 1/2 an out. Do we have 10.5 out now? We orginally started with 9 outs, giving us 36%, now we have 10.5 out giving us 42% it's a whole 6% more now.

(please check my math, i'm not 100% sure it's accurate. It looked good on paper but it might not translate well because of a variable i'm not looking at.)

If i have this hand, I can easily give it 36%(from the flush draw) +3% for straight and 1% for the two pair and set's giving me a quick 40% instead of the 36%. You can do that in under a second just seeing the cards. Which I can use in my multi-tables. (straight possible by river= 3%, two pair, set possible by river = additional 1%, giving me 4% more, givign me 40% 5:2 odds not rounded down 36% 3:1 odds)

Should I add these percent while making calls or not? I mean they are simply added bonuses and give me a better hand % not better pot odds, but in return i can call more hands. Which might be a good thing if i have the right percent but might be a bad thing because now i'm calling more hands risky more money because i simply had a few addiontal %

The whole reason i made this post is because at the tables I get flustered, I see a hand like this, I see all the possibilities and i'm quite sure the correct course of action is. This almost always ends up with me making a snap choice, and snap choices to call, or fold can very easily lead to a lose in profit.

Also i posted this is the beginner section because I'm a newb @ poker (as i've been playing for 2 weeks. If this is a more advanced question feel free to move it.

Let's start with an example.

**Example#1**Your hand = (4 , 5 :heart

The flop = (Q , 7 , 2 :heart

So from my point of view it looks like this (at least in my head)

2 , 4 , 5 , 7 , Q

My understanding of the situation.

In this case we would call because it would be profitable.

hand odds > pot odds = profitable play

hand 3:1(33%) > pot 4:1(20%) = Profit

**Question #1**A straight draw is not yet possible, but might become possible if we hit a 3 or a 6 on the turn. So it would only be x2 at best. Do we only count for the flush draw, or do we stop and start to think about the possibility of a straight?

(simply say we don't have straight draw yet, there for we only count the flush draw)

**Question #2**We would have 8 outs to hit a straight draw, So a straight would only be possible on the river. So we have 16% chance to hit a draw, Then another 16% chance to hit that draw. The math I would do is,

16% x 16% = 2.5%, So on the flop we have a 2.5% chance of hitting a straight with our hand, which could count for an addiotional out. 2.5% = 1.25outs (rounded to 1 out)

So there you have it, We have 9 outs because of the flush, but 10 out because of the straight. Do we count 9 or 10 out in this situation?

**Question #3**One step further.We can also hit double 4's, or double 5,s to make a set or 2 pair. making another monster hand. Since there are 3 4's and 3 5's on the river We can say, hitting a 4 and a 5 makes a monster hand(two pair) and hitting 2 5's or 2 4's makes a monster hand(a set). To hit 2 4's would be 3x2 =6% x 6% = 0.3% chance, Same with 2 5's = 0.3% chance and a 4 and a 5 would be roughly 0.3% chance as well. Giving us a 1% chance of hitting 2 pair or a set.

So 1% is 1/2 an out. Do we have 10.5 out now? We orginally started with 9 outs, giving us 36%, now we have 10.5 out giving us 42% it's a whole 6% more now.
