Hello i'm confused about 2 questions in the ''the rule of two and four'' quiz.

You hold A,K(spades) your opponent has 2.2 The flop is .10,10,3
(neither one of the flop cards is spades) According the the rule of two and four your winning chances are:

Why is the correct answer 28? It should be 24 because there are only 6 cards ( 3 kings, and 3 aces) that can improve my hand.

And also:
You have A,K (suits are not important here) and the board is .K,6,5 Your opponent holds A.A Your chances of improving on the turn are:
Why is it only 4 % ???

Thank you

Hi Bartans112!

In the first problem, the 3's are also outs. If a 3 hits, then I have 10's and 3's with an A kicker, which the opp would have 10's and 3's with a 2 kicker.

In the second one, the only outs that AK has there is the other two kings. If I get an A on the turn, the opp has trips to my two pair. If the board pairs (non K) then the opp's two pair is higher than my two pair.

Hope this helps.
