 Jan 27 comment How to Calculate Hand Odds in Texas Hold'em for the record - poker.stackexchange.com/questions/32/… - notice how the most votes when to a tooling answer not the simple math formula that someone "estimated" - the question is practically the same, might as well just delete this one then Jan 27 comment How to Calculate Hand Odds in Texas Hold'em All the tools do is help you learn the math. I figured "calculating hand odds" was "math" and that i said books, websites, computer or phone apps left it open for resources... also, some stacks are more about theory like Programmers for instance when things do not always have a right answer. Poker for instance will be one of those stacks whether its creators want it to or not... because other than did i count 7/52 cards right, its all theory and play style. Jan 27 comment What is the purpose of a continuation bet, and when is it best applied in Hold'em? One more thing... I think some of the creators and enthusiasts here are going to realize this stack is going to naturally be more like Programmers and StackOverflow - in that it will inherently be more discussion than simple tit-for-tat Q & A... it's just the nature of poker. If it were as simply and black and white as code syntax we'd all be rich. Jan 27 comment What is the purpose of a continuation bet, and when is it best applied in Hold'em? +1 - Excellent explanation. While it can't possibly cover the broadness of the question it is a great definition and concrete example to reference for learning. Thank you. Jan 27 comment What is the purpose of a continuation bet, and when is it best applied in Hold'em? My intention was not to be too broad, but to get some content moving. It is an important question to any enthusiast, and this stack could use a lot more traffic if it hopes to survive. Remember too, every bit shared in a vague question will guide the Asker to more specific questions - and thus we all win. Jan 14 comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them? I used to rock calculus like a second language... now i struggle to remember % / * = + ! or anything else :) take care. Jan 13 comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them? @Toby no problem at all. i like learning and love discussion. :) What's annoying is when folks downvote a better answer to protect there own. My answer is the only mathematically correct one posted. Oh well. :) Jan 11 comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them? @toby Already noted in my answer below. Also, call it semantics but as I understand `Pot Odds` are strictly explicit and "right now". `Implicit Odds` odds are your estimates of pot odds on future actions, but until others have acted and it is your turn again, they are just "guesstimates", not pot odds. 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.
