re: Poker & Decision making online
Just remember these basics. All are on the flop, so when the villain bets a certain % of the pot, take these into account. All are based on making your hand by the river
- Inside Straight Draw - 16%
- Open-Ended Straight Draw - 31%
- Flush Draw - 35%
- Flush Draw + 2 Overcards - 54% (This 1 is generally not a definate rule of thumb as you have to be 100% sure that if you catch you're over card you're not going to be up against 2-pair or a set)
- The Mother Of All Draws (Flush Draw + Open Ended Straight Draw) - 54%
Generally with a hand like an Open Ended Straight Flush Draw, you wanna ship it in on the flop, even against a set you're a 42% dog, so i'm sure you can imagine what sort of equity you have against a pair.
BtW, do you have a HUD or PT3? These will help massively for 'what villains hand ranges are'. If you haven't then I seriously suggest it if you're a big cash game player.
