Implied Odds = Stack + Pot: Call ...?
Watching a video on pokerbank, mathematics of Holdem ep 2, and 'WiltOnTilt' says in one of his slides that:
With a stack of $950, call of $100 to win $200, implied odds are 950+200 = 1150:100 = 11.5:1. And with drawing odds of 5:1 a call is definitely in order. How are implied odds connected to the stack size? He doesn't explain this. Thanks,

what I have understood is that if you bet 100 into a pot of 200 ods got to 21 by which to profitably call need to have an equity of 33% if you got less equity the call never seriously profitable than you think that in case they fall your out the villain bet all his chips and bet something, then based on what you think you are going to bet villain's account becomes and thus got an approximation of implied ods and calculate if the call is profitable or not.

Implied odds are an estimation of how much you believe you can make off your opponent if you hit your hand. It's connected to the shorter stack size because that is the maximum you can make and what you should base your implied odds off of. If your implied odds are greater than the odds of you hitting, then its a good play.
In Wilts example, say he puts his opponents on an overpair to the board, maybe KK and Wilt has a doublegutter straight draw. If he calls the bet on the flop and hits, he believes he would be able to get his opponent to commit all of their chips on the turn/river. Stack sizes are big enough where he is getting greater odds on a call against odds of hitting, so its a profitable play. However, if stack sizes were shorter, say there was only $200 behind, then the implied odds would be $200 +$200 or $400:$100, which is worse than a 5:1 odds of hitting, so this would be a non profitable play.

re: Poker & Implied Odds = Stack + Pot: Call ...?
Sometimes implied odds can be tricky because if your hand is pretty much face up... meaning your playing a draw strong and people notice.. when it comes out they will more than likely fold unless they have the nuts.

I thought Wilt was talking about his own stack when he referred to 950. I'm guessing he's referring to the shorter stack amongst the opponents? I think I get it now actually yeah  'cause the 'implied pot' is their stack notyetinthepot. So he must be referring to the opponent's stacks.

But I suppose this theory only applies if you think that he is going to go allin? I mean he does say in the video that it more than gives us the implied odds to call "against this particular player".
Would it not be easier to just multiply the call size by your odds to give you an 'implied pot size must be at least:' figure?
