You’re in a Texas Holdem game and your pocket cards are Q T,repparttar flop is J 4 9. In order to make a straight you need to get either a King or 8 onrepparttar 149713 turn or river so you have eight possible cards that can make your hand, four Kings and four 8s. These are known as your “out” cards.

You’ve seen five cards out ofrepparttar 149714 deck, your own two pocket cards andrepparttar 149715 three flop cards. That means there’s 47 cards you haven’t seen. Sorepparttar 149716 odds of you gettingrepparttar 149717 card you need are:

Cards that won’t help you : Cards that will help you

Out ofrepparttar 149718 47 remaining cards, eight of them will help you and 35 won’t, sorepparttar 149719 “odds of you gettingrepparttar 149720 card you need” are 35:8 or 4.375:1. Now forrepparttar 149721 pot odds.

The basic formula is:

The size ofrepparttar 149722 pot : Amount you need to put intorepparttar 149723 pot.

So ifrepparttar 149724 pot is sitting at $100 and you need to bet $20 to call, your pot odds are 100:20 or 5:1.

In this caserepparttar 149725 pot odds (5:1) are bigger thanrepparttar 149726 odds of you gettingrepparttar 149727 card you need (4.375:1) so you should callrepparttar 149728 bet. This is known as getting "value" for your bet. If you are doing these sums quickly you can think of 35:8 as being about four and a half to one, it’s good enough for a quick calculation.

This is a simplification of pot odds and there are other considerations like – willrepparttar 149729 players after you inrepparttar 149730 round of betting add torepparttar 149731 pot? This would make your bet an even better proposition as it would increaserepparttar 149732 pot odds but it is of course an unknown factor.
