Hey KingHouse,

It should be unknown cards i.e. Cards in Deck + All opponents hole cards / Outs.

Unknown Cards / Outs

Hi, KingHouse,
I recommend the article The Basics: Odds and Outs

There are charts in that article that express the odds of hitting various hands.
For example:
Assume you hold and the flop is
You have seen 5 cards, so there are 47 unknowns, and you have seen 4 hearts, so 9 of them are hearts
9/47 = 0.19 this is the probability of hitting your flush.
To express this as odds, you compare the probability of missing (81%) to the probability of hitting (19%)
So 4:1

This is more convenient because comparing the odds to the pot odds is a faster mental calculation than comparing probabilities.
If the pot is \$3.00 and a player bets \$1.00 then you need to put \$1 in to win \$4 -- so exactly correct pot odds for the call.

If you haven't already, I recommend that you follow the No Limit Hold'em lessons overview. It is a very good walkthrough of all the important concepts of poker.

Hope that helped.
