re: Poker & Applying 2/4 Rule For Calculating Odds?
So whats the best way to calculate heroes equity if we think villian has alot of redraws? I didnt realise there were exceptions to the rule that resulted in large inaccuracy.
For example another similar hand with 12 outs but with equity alot lower then 48%:
Board = 7h 8s 2h
Villian = AhKh
Hero = 6c9c
My calculation = Hero has 12 outs (5c,5s,5d,10c,10s,10d) giving a straight + (6c,6s,6d,10c,10s,10d) giving a pair.
Heroes actual equity = 35%
If the you change the board to 7h 8s 2c eliminating the flush possibility thus reducing the number of redraws then the heroes equity = 48%. This answer is what you would expect using the 2/4 rule.
