I downloaded 'Poker Math That Matters' by Owen Gaines' .pdf, and yeah now I realize that def isn't an implied odds situation.
Anyone ever check this book out? It explained implied odds to me well, but there are a lot of situations where using the rule of 4/2 that the equity is like 3-4% off that of pokerstove or equilab.. that can be the deciding factor in a call in my eyes...
There is also little graphs he uses for pot odds & implied odds
They go something like this:
2x pot bet needs 40% equity
pot bet needs 33%
2/3 pot needs 28%
1/2 pot needs 25%
1/4 pot needs 16%
if our equity is 35% multiply 2x opp bet, and thats how much more we need for implied odds to be correct.
25% need 3x opp bet to continue
if we have 25% equity in hand
pot= $10 opp bets $7.50
7.50 x 3 = $22.50
17.50 - 22.50 = 4
So opp needs at least $4 dollars for us to call..
Do you guys agree? Just wanna make sure I'm using good advice.
