Is not so tricky to understand xdmanx, remember the long discussion about odds in this thread (http://www.cardschat.com/showthread.php?t=59827&page=1&pp=20). See this paragraph of the #30 post on that thread about implied odds. Itīs a little simple example:

Did you understand?
Implied odds are all about anticipating your opponentīs move if you catch your draw.
Itīs not so hard to understand, but i still think that it would be a good idea to make an article about odds.
Anyway, i agree with you xdmanx that in poker you just have to apply the easiest and simpliest math you can, because math in poker is useful to create general ideas, not to predict exactly every move you do.
