I am interested in the probability of improving various starting hands. I am also interested in how to calc the information on my own.

Probability of improving on the flop, turn, and river to 1 pair or better, 2 pair of better, 3 of kind or better, etc. for any given starting hand.

Calculating the chance of improvement preflop is relatively meaningless. Preflop play doesn't have a lot of variable to consider and there are plenty of standard recommendations for playing down cards.

To read about calculating post flop potential I suggest you read this (http://www.cs.ualberta.ca/~jonathan/Grad/papp/node40.html) UofA has done plenty of research into this and has even published java code which will calculate this for you.

Thanks for the response. I will check out the post flop info.

While I appreciate your view of the value of the information that I seek, I am still interested in obtaining it.
