Correct Method for Calculating Pot Odds?
I know of two different ways to calculate pot odds
, ratios and percentages.
But I get a different result for the following hand.
Hero holds 7h8h
Board is 10h 4h 2c Ad
The pot has 23,000. Hero bets 17,500 and Villain raises him all in for 21,000 more, making the pot 61,500. According to the ratio method the odds of making the flush on the next card are 4:1 and the pot odds
(20 into 61) is ~3:1) then hero is not getting a good enough price on a call and should fold since pot odds should be higher than card odds.
According to the percentage method 61,000 + 21,000 / 21,000 is ~25% (for the percentage method you add on the call amount) and there is about an 18% chance to hit the flush therefor, pot odds are higher than chance to hit and should be a call.
This hand was in a video and then someone commented "But if he had shoved, we would have had pot odds less than 1:4(~21%) and I can't find equity no more than 16-17% for us." Where did he get the ~21% from?
This is the link to the two methods
Which is correct?
