Had a quick question about hand equity. How do you know what your equity is after all the cards are out? Is there a method or shortcut in figuring it?For example:Hand: 4H - 2HBoard: 7D - KH - 9S - 2S - 4COpponents: 2 (Unknown Hands)Its saying I have a 18.9% equity. How on earth are they getting this number? Or even close. I was guessing 5% and I got it wrong.

Against every possible hand combination. 2d4h on that board has 18.9% equity.

just plugging in random rarely gives you numbers that are anywhere near real.
