4 & 2 Rule Problems
Ive just been thinking a lot about the rule of 4&2, according to this if you have for example a flush draw on the flop, i.e 9 outs, then you have a 9x4=36% chance of hitting your flush on either the turn or the river and hopefully winning the hand. But my question about it is, say your facing an aggresive opponent or even more than 1, who will bet each street, and you have a flush draw after the flop, if you apply this rule at this stage, you need to get 2:1 pot odds
to call and see the turn. So for example the villain in this case bets 2/3 pot and you call since your getting your 2:1. Now this is all very well, but you only have an 18% chance of hitting on the turn (according to the rule) and if you know that the villain will more than likely bet the turn again with a similar bet, then if you miss you have to fold, having wasted your call on the flop by not getting the value you should have.
So essentially (if I havent confused you too much already!) my thoughts is that if you have a flush draw etc, facing an aggro opponent(s) postflop then the rule should be 2&2 and work the pot odds
off that for value?
Maybe this is obvious to everyone else and Im just abit behind, or Im overcomplicating it but if anyone else has any thoughts on this I'd be interested to hear them.
