I may tell you how I calculate implied odds and I regard that very very important, a lot of players has no clue about it. The info that Implied odds give us is how many
chips we have to earn in future streets to make a profitable call even you havent odds enough to call by the pot size and vice versa.
I have 1: 9 odds of my hand to be winner, so I multiply the value that I have to call by 10 (1 + 9). When there already is a pot, I subtract it from the result.
Ex:
Effective stack: 20k
chips
We have 1:9 odds,
There's 1000
chips in the pot
Villains raises to 2500
chips
We multiply our call by 10 = 25K
And subtract from the pot that already exist, 25K  3.500 = 21.500
chips.
So to make a profitable call you have to gain 21.500 chips in future streets.
In a lot of times the villain is not able to put all that chips on the table, other lot of times you or villain has no chips enough.
I hope that help you, I love to talk about poker math, GG
