your poker evolution
There is no time to think hard during the game. The decision should be made quickly. Simultaneously, you should not forget about its quality. When you become an experienced player, you will not need any calculations - the decision will be obvious immediately. But at first, to develop such a skill, one must calculate poker card odds accurately and quickly.
Identify the outs number to get the best hand. (Assume it, judging from the opponents’ actions).
Discount outs according to the opponents’ cards assumptions.
Count the poker (probability) odds of outs on the next street.
Determine the pot amount.
Count the pot's poker odds for your bet (or the share of your bet in a future bank). Consider the assumed poker odds.
Compare the poker odds of outs with the pot odds.
Compare the pot odds after you go all-in with the odds of outs appearing before the river. (When playing with a small stack on the flop.)
This method involves concerning poker odds of outs. It is better to apply simplified poker odds table, which can be found via the Internet. It’s not difficult to memorise all frequent odds in poker to play without turning to the very table.
The pot odds are determined according to the ratio of the pot amount (without your future bet) to the amount of this bet. Comparing the odds of out with the pot odds, you get a decision to call or not.
Invalid evaluation and discounting of outs. Do not consider overcards as outs, if you suspect that your rival has a hand higher than a pair. Do not forget to discount your outs having a flush draw on the table. Do not disregard discounting outs, which give your rival a Full House, if double cards are on the table, or if you suspect a set.
Using the poker game card odds of flop-river instead of flop-turn. Flop-river can only be counted, if you (or all opponents) are all-in. In any other case, the calculation should be done only before the next street, as on the turn you’ll have to call the next bet to see the river.
Incorrect consideration of estimated poker hand odds. Here everything depends on your knowledge of opponents’ strategy. If a player bets thoroughly, you can count on their future bets. If a player is strong and accurate, they are unlikely to call your bet, seeing a dangerous board.
It’s rather helpful to discover new information about odds of poker hands to play productively and win more.
