thank you for any help
I've found the best way is to just simplify it and LEARN it!
In practice, you really don't need to worry about less than 2 outs or more than 9 outs because you'll never have the odds
to call with less than 2 and you're pretty safe with more than 9.
The list below came from a website I stumbled across and can't remember where, so I give respect to its author (whoever you are!)
Outs Odds on turn or river
The figures are rounded up or down because you don't need to know these things to three decimal points! It should only take you a few minutes to learn it or you could print it and stick it on your screen.
I think I'll call it "Odds for Dummies" or something like that.
