what I mean by average pot is simply that it is of an average size for the game being played.
say the odds are 5:1 so every 6 times you would expect to win 5 and loose 1
Everything I read seems to say if the pot odds
are bigger than the odds of making your hand.. take them!!
But if you assume that for some reason the pot size isnt average .. its say 3 times as much as usual.
And assume you loose (draw didnt come in.. 5 out of 6 times it wont)
Then It dosent seem to be a winning play because it has cost you 3 times as much as you normally put into a pot so when you do hit the draw (on another hand) you dont make your money back because the pot size will most likely be lower than this big one (because it wasnt average in the first place!!)
does that make any more sense?
