After a few days of cruising around cardschat checking out articles Im beginning to learn more and more about poker odds
and how they are a fundemental principle of playing winning poker. Now I know that there are 'poker odds calculators' all over the net that you can use but I was wondering how people on this forum go about calculating these odds in your head. Playing online, you have about 10 seconds to roughly calculate pots odds, implied odds and decide weather it is worth putting your money in the pot.
I am generally ok at mathmatics but when it comes to calculating fractions I dont really have much idea what the best way of going about it is.
I guess what I want to know is, whats the easiest way to do it without writing anything down? 'or' do you store some implied odds in your memory (eg.the common odds at the bottom of this page
) so you only need to quickly calculate pot odds
and you will know from there.
