Poker Odds Chart

It can be helpful for beginning poker players to keep a percentages chart or odds table to hand while playing. Below is a collection of tables and images from our in-depth poker math section.

Poker Odds Tables

The most common poker odds referred to are pot odds, a way of expressing the ratio between the money you need to risk (put into the pot to call) and the money you could win (the pot size). For example if villain bets $50 into a $100 pot, the pot becomes $150. You need to call $50 to win $150, a 50:150 ratio, simplified to 1:3. More often you'll see this written or spoken as 3:1, for example 'you're getting three-to-one on a call here'.

The table below shows your pot odds for various bet sizes you are in the position to call - e.g. half pot, three quarters of the pot and so on. Odds can also be expressed as a percentage which indicates the minimum equity you require to make a breakeven call, assuming no more money goes in on later streets.

Similarly a poker odds table can be drawn up for bluffing and the % of success you require to show a profit.

Pot Odds Formula with Example

Now the odds ratio expresses the money that will be won if the bluff works, in relation to the money put at risk by betting. The table below shows the success percentage needed for various bet sizings.

Poker Percentages Chart

Another type of poker odds chart concerns the winning percentages of different hands.

For example beginners learn that overcards e.g. A♣ K♦ are a coinflip (or slight 55/45 underdog) against a pair e.g. Q♥ Q♠ in an all-in race.

Or that A♦ A♠ loses to K♣ K♥ roughly 20%, or one time in five.

Beyond that it helps to get a rough idea of which hands do well in different positions, in terms of absolute equity. This is more useful the shallower stacks are, e.g. in the push/fold stage of tournaments.

See detailed charts of winning percentages (equity in the pot) for different hands by position, and depending on the number of players in the pot, in the poker equity section here.
