re: Poker & "Getting the right price"  "Priced In"
Some people say to figure out the odds just do like 47 or 46, however many cards are left unseen, divided by ur outs. Like in the second example which I guess was a typo, but have had people tell me that is the way to do it. Are they just uninformed?
But I always do like u guys said : (Cards unseen  outs) : outs. and if pot odds are better than ur chance of hitting , ex: 7:1 pot odds and 4.75:1 chance of hitting hand, than you would be getting good enough odds to call right? (i am nolimit player, not that that matters, just saying)
I understand implied odds a lil bit too(people say thats what NLHE is about more than expressed), but want to be able to know my expressed odds without having to use a calculator, before I focus on implied odds. So basicaly I want to memorize my expressed odds, which I have not memorized them yet.
Theres the 2 and 4 rule, but that is a percentage rather than a fraction. If I took the pot odds and reversed the fraction does that give me the percantage of my pot odds as opposed to a fraction. ex: 50$ call into a 250$ pot is 5:1 pot odds, and if you have 8 outs with 1 card to come,using the rule of 2 than 8x2=16 so 16% chance of hitting, then u take ur pot odds and reverse the fraction to get a percentage? 1:5 = .2 or 20% ? so 20% is higher than 16% so good call?
Also can u reverse the fraction on ur hand odds to get the percentage?
ex: 9 outs with 1 card to come (469):9 = 37:9 = 4.1:1
So could u do 1:4:1 to get ur percentage? or am i just confusing myself? Am I confusing myself with odds for hitting with odds for missing, or do u only need to know the chance of hitting? And with percentages do u want a lower pot odds % than chance of hittin %, cuz like 4:1 chance of hittng and 6:1 pot odds give u 25% chance of hitting, but 17% pot odds, so with percentage do u want higher chance to hit than pot odds as opposed to fractions u want higher pot odds than chance of hitting?
9x2=18% but 1:4.1=24%? is it because the 2 and 4 rule is not 100% accurate, or am i mixing myself up?
I can get the easy fractions into percentages lik 1:5=20% 1:4=25%, but the harder ones I just use my computers calculator, like the 1:4.1 = .243902243902 and keeps going, so I move the decimal place 2 to the right for my percentage and round off the next number to the 10th for 24% or 24.4% to be exact?
Hrm, sorry I'm a little rusty on my math skills I guess, so I hope I did those right, and also that someone can understand my questions, thanks for any help clearing up my confusion.
