Uh, I think you made some huge outs counting errors here.

There are only 13 diamonds in the deck. You can account for four. That leaves 9.
There are 4 queens left. One of them is a diamond, which you already counted. That leaves 3.
You then have 12 outs.

OK, now do your calculations.

You shouldn't try to use math when you play hold 'em anyway. Math is stupid. Just close your eyes, read the soul of your opponent and act accordingly.

lol @ math.

You actually don't have to close your eyes if you wear sunglasses. Thats a little trick I learned @ 2-5 up the hill.

The math doesn't have to be stupid. Especially if you make it up as you go, like I do. (10 x 10 = 1000, right?)

Ya, ya ya....except we're talking poker here, not 2/5. Laughing

BTW, everyone knows there's actually 17 aces in the deck whenever I flop a set of Kings.
