You need to calculate the odds for NOT hitting the turn or the river, and then subtract 1 with that value. E.g.
6 outs, turn or river: 1 - ((41/46) * (41/45)) = 0.1879 = 0.19%
PS. Is there a difference between outs in Hold 'em and Omaha? Not sure why this chart would be different from HE? DS.
Thought about this for a bit and it makes perfect sense now that I see it. I have used my way a knew that over 100% didn't mean a for sure thing. It just meant that I would draw 2 of the outs more than drawing none of the outs but I am glad to learn the correct way to figure the odds. Learned something new today.
Is that supposed to be 0.19% or 19%
As far as the difference between Holdem and Omaha, Bombjack said it, 2 fewer cards. Odds are so close that it probably doesn't make a difference in practical use but I still wanted a correct table.
And thanks for the correct tables Bombjack. Printed and now hanging next to the monitor.
