I have a query in with the example program under 'Playing with Conviction'

Raise in example one gives you the 'thumbs up'.

Raise in example two and it says that's a mistake.

If we use the lesson from the previous pages of the rule of Two and four - isn't 40% chance to make another diamond reasonable?

Hole cards are A & 7 diamonds. Flop is As Qd 7s. Diamonds are 10 outs x 4 (two cards to come) = 40%

Am i missing something?

Hi 80m8ty,

On the 2nd example, you have Ad7d, but there is only one diamond on the flop. There are 10 diamonds still unaccounted for, so it's fairly likely that one could come on the turn, but you'll still only have a hand with 4 diamonds, not a complete flush.
You have a flush draw (sometimes called a "four-flush") if you have two diamonds in your hand, and there are two more on the flop.

Hope this helps!

Bracelet Winner

If you actually want to calculate a runner, runner flush the math is pretty simple.
OTT there are 10 outs in 47 unseen cards, or 10/47 =.2126 (rounded) (21.26%)
OTR there are then 9 outs in 46 unseen cards or 9/46 = .1957 (rounded) (19.57%)
You then just multiply the two. .2126 x .1957 = .0416 (rounded) or (4.16%) or roughly 24:1 against

May the tinfoil protect you. MT
