Poker Dictionary




Equity is the total percent chance a hand will win in addition to the percent chance that hand will tie at any particular point in a hand. The rule of 2 and 4 for calculating pot odds is a shortcut for determining equity and is helpful in making +EV decisions.

Example: With the nut flush draw, I figured I had about 36% equity and decided to call his flop bet.
