HOW TO USE THIS CHART: First, count your outs. If you have
a four-flush after the flop, there are nine of your suit left in the
deck, so you have nine outs. Check the chart. With the turn and
river still to come, you have a 35 percent chance of
hitting your hand. That means you’ll make it about one out of
three tries. If you don’t hit it on the turn, you still have a 20 percent
chance of making your flush on the river. Twenty
percent is one chance in five.
