Poker Math!!! HELP!!
hey all I wasnt sure if this should go in this board of the stratergy board, so please forgive me if it is wrong.
I feel that I have a good pre-flop stratergy, but I am having a bit of trouble on the flop. Before I become a straergy expert I would like to play the game mathmatically correct. Right here it goes, sorry of it is a long post.
If I flop a monster hand I bet big. If I flop a drawing hand I use out odds
to tell if seeing the next card is correct. With just the river to come if I am drawing to a monster I see if implied odds make a call worthwhile. With no more cards to come I use win odds to see if i should call ( should i be using pot odds
here to?). I am having trouble with EV. For example with just the river to come, I have a mediocre hand(planning to win without improving), with a non dangerous board, incorrect out odds - with poor outs anyway. There is $130 in the pot and it is a $10 call to me. My calculator states I have a 2.2:1 to win. So I figure that I will lose $10 2.2 time for a total loss of $22, but I will win $130 once for a net profit of $108. So I decide to call.
Is this only correct if I win on the turn and dont have to see the river? If so what factors should I use to decide my play.
All help grealty appreicated! And have a good game.
