With an odds calculator, you can determine the odds of almost any given poker situation by entering the # of players in the game and the hands each player is holding (or the hands you think each player is holding). You can select cards to come up on the flop and turn. When you click on “Calculate Odds,” the calculator will present you with each hand’s % chance of winning. Anytime you want to reset the calculator and determine information about new hands or combinations, simply click on “Reset.” The results are more or less instantaneous, depending on your connection speed, and this can be a very useful tool indeed when you’re playing in a live game.
