This is a discussion on Quick pot odds calculation? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; hi i read awhile back a fast way to calculate pot odds, but i forgot what it was, does anyone know ? Was it your
1 count your outs. On the flop untill river your chance in percents is outsx4, for the next street it is outsx2. Considerations: if you have enough equity for the river x4 villain can bet again next street turn and give you bad odds so calculate mainly x2 next street for the other look at it like implied odds. gl

pot odds and outs are 2 things, together they indicate if it's good to call, or better fold.
pot odds example:
say 2 players, pot = 90.
player before you bets 10
You have to pay 10 to get a chance to win a pot of 100, thats 10 to 1 pot odds.
Depending the outs (the cards that will give you the winning hand) you can calculate the ev if good to call, or implied odds (more $ to be added to the pot later if successful).
The youtube MIT course explains this in detail.

re: Poker & Quick pot odds calculation?
Divide the pot by the bet for pot odds.If your after your equity then its the rule of 4 and 2. Multiply your outs by 4 on the flop and by 2 on the turn which gives you your equity in the hand.

the best and fastest way is simply seeing how much is in the well and how much you have to pay to see the next card plus the outs that can give you the winning hand plus the split
I also read to modify the 2 4 rule if your outs are over 8 and you are guaranteed to see 2 cards you multiple your outs by 4 then subtract (number of outs -8). So say you have 15 outs, you go ( 15 X 4 ) - (15-8) is 60 -7 = 53 per cent
