hello all, I recently joined Bovada and was having a few questions about poker. I watched a video on odds and how they can make you more money and win more hands. I just dont know what a good percent to go in on is. For example if there is a 24% percent chance of completing my flush, Do I go for it? What is a good percent chance to take? Thanks for the help.
You want to use this with pot odds and equity. Like the example that cards chat uses. Where the example is a guy bets $10 making the pot $100, then yes that's a profitable play because you're 10:1 on a play that says you'll hit your flush 25% of the time. That's why you see guys betting big on flops with a potential flush draw is they want to make the play unprofitable for guys on flush draws

re: Poker & Poker Odds
Compare the odds of making your hand against the odds that the pot is offering you.
eg: if you have a flush draw on the flop, you are 2:1 against making it (you'll make it about 1/3 of the time) If you are getting better than 2:1 pot odds on your call, you will make money in the long run.
