This is a discussion on Poll:Do you use percent or ratios when figuring out pot odds? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I prefer to use percentages, even though it takes a little more work convert from ratios. How about you guys?

Yeah ratios ARE a lot faster, I think I'm gonna try using only ratios. The only reason I normally use % is it's easier to to get an idea of just how big of a favorite or underdog you are in a hand. I mean, if you know you're a 1.8:1 dog with two cards to come is great when you need to figure out the correct mathematical decision, but I have a clearer mental picture of where I'm at if I know I'm only about 35% to win

re: Poker & Poll:Do you use percent or ratios when figuring out pot odds?
Ratios normally, % when in allin situations. Remember, you should be calculating your odds one street at a time, so knowing that you are 35% on the flop to hit your flush doesn't really help you (that's the % with two cards to come). It's really a simple memorization:
outs ratio 1 46:1 2 23:1 3 15:1 4 (gut shot) 11:1 5 8:1 6 (over cards) 7:1 7 6:1 8 (oesd) 5:1 9 (flush draw) 4:1 10 3.7:1 11 3.3:1 12 3:1 13 2.6:1 14 2.4:1 15 2.1:1 If you were able to successully memorize your multiplication tables this should be no problem. Really, you could probably get buy with just to bold ones.

i think the question was for pot odds not hand improving odds , pot odds how much is in the pot vs what it will cost to see anouther card and then how about implied odds how many calling stations behind you etc. so if only cost 1 bet to win 11 i guess you are suppose to chase that gutshot?
