Knowing your odds well is a key discipline one must possess to consistently win at poker. The poker odds chart below shows the probabilities of obtaining various winning hands in Texas Hold'em Poker.

"Now the general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand.

Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to defeat: how much more no calculation at all!

It is by attention to this point that I can foresee who is likely to win or lose."

- Sun Tzu
