comment Hands selection in a 6 table
Thanks for the comment :) I knew this question would bring discussion like this, I was just wondering if somebody had a cheat sheet at least to base some of the decisions :)

comment Ratio vs Percentage in pots odds and hand odds
Brent, I think the ratio is still 5:1 There's $100 in the pot and we need to call $20, meaning we are getting 5:1 odds - For every 20, I get 100, or in other words, for every 1, I get 5, right? That means that the ratio is 5:1 still, right? The only thing that changes is when calculating the %, we need to do (1/(5+1))*100. Right?

I have a question. When doing the conversion you say that 1:5 => 20%. I have seen in several sites, the following 1:5 => 17% (thepokerbank.com/tools/odds-charts/ratio-percentage) - Any ideas why?

Thanks a lot for your comments. What I was saying about the difference between ratios and percentage is that: 1- If my ratio of hands are 4:1 and my ratio of pots is 10:1, since the pot ratio are bigger, you choose to continue. However, in 2 - If percentage of hands 36% is bigger than percentage of pot 10%, you continue. So as you see in one case you decide if hands (percentage) is bigger, and in the other if pot (ratio) is bigger.

Interesting. However, let me ask you something: I have heard that using the rule of 4 is not 'good'. It should always be used the rule of 2, whether in the flop or in the turn. Because when you multiply by 4 you are assuming stuff that will happen in other streets. Am I right on that assumption? And second question: When using ratio, you make the call if the odds of the pot are bigger than the hand. However, when doing percentage, you make the call if the percentage of the hand is bigger than the percentage of the pot. Why is different when using ratio than when using percentage?
