Try
Figure out what cards (called outs) will give you the best hand.
Example
You have AcKc and the board is Jc5c2d.
You think he might have a set, so the 9 remaining clubs will more than likely give you the winning hand.
The fastest way to do this at the table, is to use the 2-4 rule. If you have one card to come, mulitiply your outs by 2. If you have 2 cards to come, mulitiply your outs by 4. So 9 outs on the flop is 36% and on the turn is 18%.

In actual is 34.97% on the flop and 19.57% on the turn but it is close.

First, you must ask your opponent if he would kindly show you his cards....
