Following the advice received in answers to my last question, I’ve started practising estimating equity using Equilab - and I’ve been very disappointed to find that I’m nowhere near where I thought I was in terms of accuracy!

On to the question …

I was dealt QsQh, flop comes 2s9hAd. In this exercise the villain is playing any 2 cards.

It’s not unlikely that the villain has 2 pair or a small set so I need a queen on the turn or river to take the hand.

There’s 2 queens in the deck giving me 2 outs on the turn and 2 outs on the river = 4 outs. Multiply by 4 to give me 16% equity.

Equilab calculated 78% equity … a rather large difference, much worse than even I normally get, so I’m wondering what I missed in my estimation?

Thanks for your time

Regards
