There is a way to win at Connect Four literally 100% of the time

Connect Four is a fun game. It’s also what math geeks call a “solved” one. There’s actually a way to play it perfectly and win every single time no matter what your opponent does. Now, you need to get the first move. But so long as you do, then even if you’re playing a perfect opponent, you’ll win within 41 moves. Hit “Know More” for a paper explaining all the math.

This one is actually two questions:

1- At any point in a hand in Pot Limit Omaha what is the highest number of outs you can have? you have to give an example with both players holecards and board, and enumerate the actual cards that you are counting as outs.

2-  At any point in a hand in No Limit Holdem what is the highest number of outs you can have? you have to give an example with both players holecards and board, and enumerate the actual cards that you are counting as outs.

PS: if you think that somebody’s else answer is wrong, please point the mistake and then give your right answer. Remember that only the first correct answer wins the point.
