See a few mistakes in the above answer...
combin(47;2) = 1081 two cards combination left.
But there are only 10 hearts remaining, so only 45 flush draws possible:
combin(10:2) = 45 flush draws
7,8 = 15 (the flush combo does not count) 3,7 = 15 (the flush combo does not count) 2,3 = 15 (the flush combo does not count)
combin(3:2) = 3 not 6 5,5 = 3 6,6 = 3
Ergo: total of 96 possible 2 card combo's that will give you trips or better.
Only 8.9% chance of getting trips or better
