 Jan 11 revised How to Calculate Hand Odds in Texas Hold'em Rephrased the question and title to be more explicit with WHAT and HOW Jan 11 comment How to Calculate Hand Odds in Texas Hold'em I also read the "Good subjective / Bad subjective" blog post and still do not see why this should be closed. Jan 11 comment How to Calculate Hand Odds in Texas Hold'em @RebeccaChernoff - I have read that blog post, and I'm still not entirely sure why you think this question "has no answer" or is not constructive. A list of tools others' experience in using them is a very good "how" question, and would be useful to many enthusiasts. What is bad about this question? Jan 11 comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them? When calculating pot odds, only the cost of the next call matters. The value of calling using pot odds however is only measurable when trended over an extended period of time. Jan 11 comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them? @ChrisMarasti-Georg You always count the call amount in when calculating pot odds. The ration you're talking about is not "pot odds" but another methodology for value betting, and the numbers aren't right either - using your perspective, you would be risking 400 to gain 500 (or 850 if Alice calls too). Jan 11 comment Tools for Managing Bankroll, Income and Losses Both are welcome Jan 11 comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them? Good explanation of using pot odds for value, but the Pot Odds here would be `10:2` or `5:1` reduced. Your percentage value is `1/6 (16.7%)`. Otherwise your example still holds true - %20 chance of taking the pot means you beat the pot odds and over time will earn money.
