Pot Odds and Chipstack Size
While I was donking hard on ultimate bet after winning the cardschat freeroll, I happened to ask myself this question. I got extremely lucky and sucked out but I believe this can be considered good question. When there's two people who all in, you're always getting better than 2 to 1 to call but you have to risk your whole tournament or chips, it would not be good call. How do you calculate this?
I will bring up a scenario which did happen.
Flop was 4 6 9 all clubs. I have pocket nines. One person push all in with 9h and Ac. Other person already flopped Queen high flush. Both players shoved all-in 4 dollars each since it was fight between big stacks. I had about 4 dollars behind me too. I'm getting 2:1 to call but it was for my entire chipstack. Is it still appropriate to call even when you know you're behind just because you're getting right odds
? I knew clearly that I'm behind and one of them probably have flopped a flush since there are two people. I happened to call and suck out because board paired but I kinda thought to myself. What if I was in World Series Main Event. Blinds are at 50/100 and everybody has 30,000 chips and two people moved all-in in front of you when initial pot before person who moved all-in was about 1000 chips. crazy guy moves all-in 30k into pot of 1k. There's a person who calls. You're getting 2:1 to call. But if it's for your whole tournament, I don't think you should call if you're very certain that you're behind. How do you determine when to call and when not to call regardless of pot odds
because you're always getting 2:1 but I'm sure there's a way to calculate if it's a good or bad call by comparing it to chipstack size. Can anybody explain?
