I was reading through the 'Odds and Outs' page but got to this bit (see below) and don't understand what the three additional outs are on the river... can anyone explain this...?


Example of your outs with a set against a flush draw

"If you hit a set with 7d 7h and the board showing 2s 7s Js but are worried that your opponent has a flush, there are seven cards that could make you a full house or better (a seven, three remaining twos and three remaining jacks). If you don't hit any of your outs on the turn, then you'll have three additional outs, making a total of ten outs on the river"

Hi Ruby B1ack!

Welcome to the forum. Here's a link that will help to get you familiar with all that PSO has to offer.

When flopping a set, a player has 7 outs on the turn and 10 outs on the river. Here's why.

ex: I have JJ in my hand and the board comes A J 3.
For the turn, I can improve with a J (1 out), an ace (3 outs) and a 3 (3 outs).
If I miss the turn, say that there is an 8 on the turn. I now have 3 additional outs (the other 8's) for the river.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

I think the three additional outs are whatever the turn card is , so if the turn card was a Jack another Jack on the river would make a full house.

Thank you to both responders. That is now perfectly clear. Much appreciated! I can't believe I couldn't work that out for myself! Must be the lateness of the hour! x
