This is a discussion on Trips within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Anyone know the odds of making trips by the river with a pocket pair? All the sites I have looked at only show odds to
With having pocket pair, it is 11% chance to hit trips or better (like full house) at the flop.
There are sites that offer exact percentages, not that hard to find. The 11% probability I know in head, but the source is long forgotten

The 11% probability I know I knew, it's not very profitable to believe that you hit the river that way.

basic probability theory.
there are 2 outs and 5 cards
the odds of not hitting trips is
(48/50)*(47/49)*(46/48)*(45/47)*(44/46) = 0.80816
So the probability of hitting trips is 1 - 0.80816 = 0.19184

I found when holding pocket pair - Odds/probability of making a set or better by the river 4.2 to 1 or 19.2% chance
