i just needed some clarification on some pot odds. When you are calculating your outs to the number of cards left in the deck do you calculate the outs by all the cards minus your hole cards and the flop or all the cards dealt? Thanks to anyone who can clarify this for me.
There is a lot more good information under the articles tab at the top of the home page

You use only the cards you CANNOT see. On the flop: 52 minus your 2 hole cards minus 3 board cards (52 - 2 - 3 = 47). Another card shown on the turn means you figure with 46.

Thank you very much both of you. I was pretty sure that it was only your hole cards and the community cards taken out of the deck for odds but thanks for the clarification. Thank you as well for the good article Alon Ipser. I found it quite useful.
