hes getting 3;1 100 to call to win a 300 pot total﻿

• Arty Lee 5 years ago

@yonex003 Yes, that’s it. You have to bear in mind that there is a chance
your opponent is chasing the same draw. Many times there will be 7 8 J on
the table and I have the 9 and an opponent has the 10. I might think there
are 4 tens still available, when really there are only 3. On a 4-player
table, there’s about a 30% chance that someone will have one of the 10s I
need, so my number of outs on that gutshot would be between 3 and 4. I’d
only have all 4 outs for sure if I was playing alone.

do you not take into account the possibility that other people have folded

• BxSQUIRREL 5 years ago

@BxSQUIRREL since you never see your opponents cards , you wouldnt be able
to.. but if you have a good read on your opponent and think hes chasing a
flush or straight then you can do very general calculation. And then of
course if you are both all in you can look at your opponents cards and then
do the calculations as you would do for your own cards

wait, isn’t it 3 to 1? if he called 100? because if he called 100, the pot
will become 300 instead of 200?

• metalcello 5 years ago

@PBRMafia Please correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t you forget to take
into consideration that there are TWO chances after the flop (the turn,
then river) to make your hand? Therefore, on the flop, your odds are 10/44
(turn) + 10/42 (river) = 46.5% which is close to the 40% given by the 4 and
2 method. If you haven’t made your hand on the turn, then, 10/42 = 24% for
the river which is about 2 x 10 (outs) = 20?

• pirocan1 5 years ago

how would u calculate the outs for the other guy?

• doesnt another 2 5’s count as outs? trips will beat his pair?

• Mr2010wildcat 5 years ago

Alright so here’s probably a stupid question, but if the pot is 500 and
your opponent raises 200 do I calculate the odds by 7/2 or 7/1 ??

• Ramel Prince 5 years ago

@Gebuza Huh? 4 to 1 means he’s getting 4 times his money for the price of
one. If it costs \$25 to win \$100 that’s 4 to 1. The odds are what
determines the percentage of the times you will win. For example, 9 outs
using the rule of 4 and 2 will mean you have about a 36% chance of making

• TheCheesecar 5 years ago

what do you multiply it by like with gus hansens 20 outs do you multiply it
by 2 on the turn and 4 on flop?

• mastermax7777 5 years ago

he knows because he calculated his odds

• yonex003 5 years ago

@artysmokes So what ur saying is they take in the probability of what their
opponents have? I think i understand what ur saying with using 50/50 by
saying usually you can have 9 but its 8 1/2

• Ramel Prince 5 years ago

@Ramel34 Maybe I’m not understanding what you guys are talking about.

• MyTent OrYours 5 years ago

If he’s worked out his hand’s a 20% chance and there’s only one other
person in the pot then then theoretically the must be holding an 80% chance
given everything must equal 1 in probability.

• PBRMafia 5 years ago

@metalcello Ok,one this whole method is stupid bcuz you shouldnt be worried
about what is going to happen on the river when your only at the turn.

• alfiecaygill 5 years ago

thats what i was thinking at first… but its just to give you a quick
understanding of how strong your hand or your outs are… if you tally up
and it isnt that good, then think if someone has folded some of your outs
that its decreased alot. its for maximum possibility and to see how good
the odds and outs actually are

Coward folderer

• yonex003 5 years ago

@theREALpromised1 You are not suppose to take your opponents hands into
consideration when applying odds. Whenever i play i usually only add the
odds that will give me the best hand so I know I can win with the best hand.
