Though the above odds actually apply to a five card draw they still show the relative odds of drawing any poker hands.  Since you actually get 5 community cards as well as your two pocket cards to make your hand in Hold'em your chances of getting each hand are a little greater, but since you share those community cards with your opponents, their chances of making the hand are the same.  What it all boils down to is use these odds to assess your chances of making a hand and your opponent making a better one.

The table above shows the expected winning percentages of pocket pairs when the specified number of players plays to the end of the hand.  Of course this may not always happen so the percentages may actually be a bit higher.  Nevertheless, this table gives a good idea of how well you can expect to do with any pocket pair before you see any community cards.
By using the poker odds in these charts you will be able to bet with the percentages on your side.  While betting strategy and bluffing are key elements in winning Hold'em Poker, having the cards and knowing how to use them is the ultimate advantage.  Most poker pros will tell you this, "Sooner or later you have to have the cards."

There is one essential trait that all good poker players have.  It cannot be evaluated on a chart or quantified in percentages, but without it the best statistician in the world is a mediocre player.  The trait is discipline.  Waiting until you have the right cards and situation before you make your move will put you head and shoulders above the rest.

Professional poker players make their living off players who get impatient and play inferior hands.  Oftentimes a player will compound the mistake by trying to force a win by overbetting a poor hand.  The result is another day's pay for a smart and patient player.

Just how often will you be dealt a good hand?  The following chart tells how often you will get a top hand...

Poker percentages refers to several aspects of the game of poker.  For instance, there are the percentages, or chances, of drawing certain cards.  Of course the more advantageous the hand, the less likely it is that you will draw that hand, but even that rule has a few exceptions.  An example would be that you have the same chances, or percentages, of drawing a pair of deuces as you do of drawing a pair of aces.  Drawing aces, otherwise known as pocket rockets in Holdem Poker, is considered the best opening hand in Texas Holdem Poker, and it isn't shabby in other forms of poker as well.

While bluffing and slow playing are several ways of increasing your chances of winning in poker, if you do them well, in the long run, knowing the percentages, or odds of winning with a hand will be your best asset and also give you the confidence to play against any other player, no matter how good he or she may be.  After all, the percentages are the same whether you are a pro or a beginner.  Good Luck!
