The outs and pot odds are very important components for any good poker player, and form the basis for this that you can properly respond to its own sheet, the flop and the commandments, so that one is able to be maximum with minimal losses to secure profits. The outs are all the cards that you need to improve your own sheet and if they are not lying with the enemies in the deck still present. So if you have for example a 3 and a 4 on the own hand, and on the flop, the 5 and the 6 are, then you can make a road and thus a good hand by the 2 or 7. The 2s and 7s there are always per deck 4 times, so in this case you have 8 outs. When were 56 cards in the deck from the start, is the chance that you can get one of these cards at 1 / 7th The pot odds, however, are the so-called pot odds, which refer to the number of outs and through which one is able to calculate the extent to which there is a chance that you can improve his hand and that one thereby gains something. So you can then decide if and how much is worthwhile to provide what is ultimately a very important point. The pot odds in relation to the outs should be mastered by every good poker player by heart, so that they in the game and can really apply. One must distinguish between the odds after the flop to the river and on the turn. After the flop, when the turn and river can still be open to calculate his chances with a very simple formula. It is simply the number of outs and expects this 4 time, then you have the number of chances in percentage that can be taken into account. The chance to meet a missing Kate on the River is, of course, lower than after the flop, as only the River offers only half the chance. To calculate this chance, you, therefore, the number of outs with the 2 times and then added another 2, then one has to use the chance of a card that improves the sheet as a percentage and then this opportunity, therefore, according to the game . For the chance to improve their own sheet by the River, applies basically the same thing, because here you still have the same number of outs and only one card that can arise what you wish for. Again, one can therefore multiply your outs by 2 and another 2 add here, so you get the chance in percent, which can be applied to estimate its own use. To find out how much it is worth to go along with the commandments, we also take the opportunities that you have identified. The outs multiplied by 2 and added to another 2 times then you take the money in the pot, so you then get the sum to which one should go with. Does anyone know more than this sum should fit you, since the odds are no longer in the correct ratio to what you would have to invest themselves in order to get your money. These calculations appear most laymen at first somewhat difficult and expensive, but they go one, when applied at his games again and again, very rapidly in flesh and blood, so you then have to think after some time not even be long how the outs and pot odds are. For a true professional, it is of course apply these formulas in every game and tournament, because only then you always have the option to keep its financial expenses and losses as low as possible and the maximum profit. As to the percentage in which it is better to get off, each player must find its own strategy, which is worth at the beginning mostly if you play only the highest opportunities and so on number plays it safe, while with increasing skills course always can play more hands to secure so every now and then by Bluffs a win, if you can acquire such an aggressive style of play and is capable of the whole implement so that you also may thus succeed because this is ultimately, to which it always arrives in poker, when you want to stay in the long run on the ball and has the desire to bring something to it that way. Poker always requires practice and patience, also you should of course be aware in advance, so that one. Due to the many things that you should master, is not surprised sooner or later Of course, you can also tackle one after the other, as a best fit.
